Former Boston Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo signs with Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of NPB

Former Boston Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is headed to play professional baseball in Japan.

The 33-year-old right-handed hitter has signed a contract with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of Nippon Professional Baseball. The team officially announced the signing Friday evening.

Castillo became a free agent after the 2020 MLB season.

He initially signed a seven-year, $72.5-million deal with the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 23, 2014, but he spent most of his career at Triple-A Pawtucket.
