Of Andrew Benintendi, Rusney Castillo, and growing pains - Over the Monster

Even if his winter league play this year is a true indication that he’s made an important adjustment, Rusney Castillo probably isn’t an option for the Sox. On the radio yesterday someone (can’t remember who) made the point about Castillo’s contract being an issue for his call-up. Castillo is no longer on the 40-Man so his $11 million contract no longer counts toward the luxury tax. If the Sox recall him, he’d put the Sox over the threshold, which is something they clearly don’t want to do.
