After just returning from a shoulder injury just over a week ago, Rusney Castillo had to leave Wednesday's Triple-A Pawtucket game with an ankle injury, although at least for now, it doesn't appear to be serious. The outfielder left after tweaking his left ankle on an awkward slide during a steal of second base. Manager Kevin Boles said he was removed as a precaution and he left stadium without a limp or any kind of wrap or bandage on the ankle. "After the history here and seeing that slide, it was pretty scary. We just want to make sure we err on the side of caution," Boles told reporters. "He came in afterward and said he's ready to go. We'll see how he checks out." Castillo is hitting .271 in 12 games with Pawtucket this year. He's still working his way back from a shoulder injury suffered the first weekend of the season. He hasn't played three consecutive games this year, so he will need to get back to full strength before being considered as a possible call up. For more Red Sox news, visit
