Castillo, 27, will join the team this season, the source added.
He will be added to an outfield that already includes another Cuban defector, Yoenis Cespedes.
This is one of those cases where you just have to trust that the scouts are good at their job. Does he look good in this showcase? Yes, but I’m sure every other player vying to get into the MLB looks great as well. It is exciting that he gets to the join the Red Sox this year though, so at least we can see what he brings to the table and he can get used to playing here. I also have to assume this may be the end of the Jackie Bradley Jr. era in Boston. Now you have Castillo, Betts and JBJ in center, and JBJ is clearly at the bottom of that list. I guess that’s what happens when you go months in between hits. Let’s see what Castillo can do. It certainly can’t get worse.
What a day to be a Maverick fan. Dirk hits a buzzer beater at Madison Square Garden to beat the Knicks, we’re on a three game winning streak, we won the NBA title in 2011 and Mark Cuban is handing out plaques to the best fans in the world for being season ticket holders. Suck on that, Raptors.

Logical reaction. Especially when this Demis guy wasn’t even in the goddamn game. Somebody cut the steroid supply to the Cuban league. Amigos are going loco.
