It's been a bad year for rookies everywhere, not just in Boston. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Which is why Mookie Betts' peripheral stats are so encouraging. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

He may be the future of the Red Sox outfield, or at least the non-Cuban contingent. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

Rusney Castillo and Yoenis Cespedes will likely be the remaining two-thirds,  following in the footsteps of several successful Cuban players in team history. (

Allen Craig, who's just happy to be here, will obviously also be competing for the position. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)

Though Castillo likely won't be on the team in time to help play the role of spoiler. (Ben Shapiro; MassLive)

But he may enjoy a Cup of Coffee on his way up to the major league roster. (John Gray; Sox Prospects)
