Rusney Castillo lands on Red Sox disabled list

Baseball Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is headed for a stint on the disabled list to rehab a shoulder injury he suffered Saturday while diving for a pop-up.Castillo, who has been playing for Triple-A Pawtucket to start the season, needs "a little bit of time for rest and rehab,” according to Red Sox manager John Farrell. An MRI on Monday revealed no structural damage to Castillo's shoulder. Farrell declined to specify a recovery timetable.“What length of time remains to be seen," he told reporters Tuesday before a game against the Nationals, via NESN. "That’s not to suggest this is a long-term thing. He’s just going to need a little time to get back to 100 percent. ... He’ll be on the field when he’s ready. I’m not trying to give you a short answer. I just don’t know how long that will be.” Injuries have nagged Castillo since he signed a seven-year, $72.5 million contract with the Red Sox last August. He dealt with a thumb injury in October and an oblique injury during Red Sox spring train

ing.He was optioned to Pawtucket to start the season, in part because of the Red Sox's glut of outfielders at the big-league level. He had been off to a strong start, going 5 for 12 with a double, walk and steal in his first three games in the minors before the injury.
