Red Sox minor lines: Rusney Castillo out with shoulder injury

Rusney Castillo was waiting for an injury in Boston to give him a chance to play. Now it's possible he will be the first outfielder to go down.

Pawtucket L 6-7 (In 16)

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-8, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 1-1
Bryce Brentz: 1-8, 3 K
Garin Cecchini: 2-8
Sean Coyle: 0-5, 2 BB, 2 K
Humberto Quintero: 3-7

Eduardo Rodriguez: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
Dalier Hinojosa: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Rusney Castillo was pulled in the late innings of Saturday night's PawSox game, leading to a fair bit of speculation that he might be on the way to Boston. It turns out that's the case, but not because he's being called up. Instead, Castillo jammed his shoulder making a diving catch in that Saturday game, and will get it checked out by the big league team's doctors.

Meanwhile the PawSox are trying to match Boston's 19-inning feat. They've split up 11 extra innings over their past two games, though thankfully this time was due to a bullpen meltdown, with Eduardo Rodriguez doing just fine in his 2015 debut.

Portland L 2-10

Carlos Asuaje: 1-5, 2B, K
Henry Ramos: 1-4, 2B, K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-3, BB

Salem L 2-4

Sam Travis: 0-3
Wendell Rijo: 0-3

Kevin McAvoy: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Kevin McAvoy, the Sox' fourth round pick in 2014, was picking on weak competition when he made his debut with Lowell last year. But the Sox are leaving little room to doubt any positive results this year with an aggressive promotion to Salem right out of the gates. He's off to a good start for now.

Greenville L 1-2

Michael Chavis: 0-4, 2 K, E

A very quiet game in Greenville and, really, throughout the system. A lot of days off being doled out to players of note makes for a relatively uninteresting day even in a stacked system like Boston's.
