Rusney Castillo - free at last
Rusney Castillo, once touted as the Red Sox outfielder extraordinaire...has finally found an opportunity to play in Japan.
Having signed a mind-blowing $72.5m contract in 2014, he found himself locked into a AAA situation in Pawtucket, the Red Sox AAA club that he couldn't get out of. He has now signed with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in Nippon, Japan...and has taken his tons of money with him. Not many get to play in AAA for $10m+ per season for 6+ years.
Yet another Red Sox deal gone way wrong. There are several.
