WEEI.com's Rob Bradford reports that Rusney Castillo will play in both the Arizona Fall League and the Puerto Rican Winter League this offseason.
The Red Sox want him to knock some rust off, as it's been a while since he played regularly in Cuba. Castillo got in nearly 50 at-bats in the minors for the Red Sox and will be promoted to the big club Wednesday. The 27-year-old will be given a chance next spring training to win an Opening Day roster spot.
Dee Gordon is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.
It's just a routine day of rest. Darwin Barney is filling in at second base in Gordon's place.
Hanley Ramirez (elbow) remained out of the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.
Ramirez was able to pinch-hit Tuesday but will miss a second straight start, suggesting that his elbow is more of an issue in the field. The Dodgers are considering the shortstop day-to-day. Miguel Rojas is filling in Wednesday.
The Angels will make a "bullpen start" on Saturday against the Rangers in place of the injured Matt Shoemaker (oblique).
It will be either Wade LeBlanc or Michael Roth who will start the game, but the Angels will utilize many of the 18 pitchers they're carrying. Shoemaker might miss more than just the one start, so LeBlanc and/or Roth could be needed for another start next week.
Blake Treinen will make a spot start on Wednesday against the Braves.
The Nationals are rolling out their "B" squad a day after clinching the National League East. Treinen hasn't thrown more than two innings since his August 26 start at Triple-A Syracuse, when he tossed 4 2/3 frames. However, he does have a 2.18 ERA over 41 1/3 frames in the majors this season and isn't a bad streaming option in deeper formats against a struggling Braves offense.
