Default Wellington Castillo Appreciation Thread

Traded to the Rangers along with an international signing bonus pool slot for IF/OF Josh McReynolds.

I don't quite get the international signing bonus pool slot being included but whatever:

They are giving up the right to spend $250K in exchange for the Rangers picking up the $500K to buyout Castillo.

The Sox must not believe they need the $250K for the international amateur FAs they plan to sign, and the Rangers have no intention of picking up Castilloís option; they will buy him out.

When will the Sox be active in the international FA space again. Other teams are making a killing there.

Unless this is a precursor to something else, I don't get this move at all.

What would it be a precursor to?

Ah! I thought the Sox were still in the International Signing Pool Penalty Box for Luis Robert? Has the time expired on that penalty?

We don't need two threads discussing the same thing. This is not an appreciation thread it's a redundant thread to the off-season discussion of this move.

Closed.
