The Red Sox announced Tuesday that outfielder Rusney Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket after hitting just .230 with one home run and six RBIs in 26 games this season.

“He needs to get back into the rhythm of the game more than anything,” Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters Tuesday.

However, Farrell remains optimistic about the Cuban slugger’s progress.

“The speed of the game here is greater than he’s experienced elsewhere,” Farrell said. “All of that goes into the reason to get him to play everyday so he can come back and contribute here.”
