- Some tough news broke on Monday as the Red Sox announced that first baseman Sam Travis, the fifth-ranked prospect on SoxProspects.com, would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Allen Craig also went on the disabled list last week, so the corner infield depth in the upper minors took a big hit over the last seven days.
- With Blake Swihart seeing most of the opportunities in left field for Boston, Rusney Castillo (pictured, right) continues to stay buried on the depth chart. Castillo was the focus of Alex Speier's column last week, as the Boston Globe columnist discussed his struggles in Pawtucket. Entering Monday, Castillo was batting .248/.305/.326 over 141 at-bats for the PawSox, which is not what the organization expected when they signed him to a seven year, $72.5 million deal in 2014.
