Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo is day-to-day after suffering a bruised hand during Arizona Fall League play on Monday.

The Cuban defector may miss a few days of Arizona Fall League action, but should be back on the field once his hand is feeling up to par. Castillo signed a contract worth $72.5 million in August and recently switched agents and is now being represented by Jay-Z's Roc Nation. He will have a starting job in Boston next year.

Red Sox could make Yoenis Cespedes available in a trade. He will earn $10.2 million in the final year of his deal. 

If Boston were to keep him, Cespedes would most likely slot somewhere into the middle of the Boston line up. Cespedes hit .260 with 22 home runs, and 100 RBIs in 2014. It was the first time in his career he reached 100 RBIs in a single season.

According to Mike Napoli, the first baseman will be undergoing Bimaxillary Advancement surgery in order to help alleviate his long-standing battle with sleep apnea.

Basically, the procedure moves both the upper and lower jaw forward to help enlarge the airway, thus making it easier for those with apnea to breathe while they're asleep. It takes about a month to recover from the procedure, so this won't affect Napoli's work on the field at all.

Red Sox say Clay Buchholz underwent successful meniscus surgery on his right knee Tuesday.

We wish him nothing but the best in his recovery which should be a couple of months just to err on the side of caution. He is expected to be ready for spring training in 2015.

The Red Sox have not yet decided whether they'll tender Koji Uehara a qualifying offer for next season.

While Uehara opened the season strong, wear and tear on his shoulder took center stage and he collapsed down the stretch. it got so bad that the Sox pulled him from the bullpen and replaced him with Edward Mujica. You can bet they'll run a ton of tests on his arm and shoulder before making the decision to present him with a qualifying offer.
