Rusney Castillo is getting his bruised hand/wrist checked out Friday, but  the Red Sox still don't believe it's serious. 

He'll continue to be evaluated, but with no breaks or fractures to worry about, it looks like rest will be the answer here. He should be just fine for spring training in 2015.

Craig Breslow is not optimistic about his option being picked up by the Red Sox.

Breslow posted a 5.94 ERA with a weak 1.32 K/BB over 54.1 innings last season. His strikeout rate dropped, the walks increased and, well, he just didn't look very good on the mound at all. As a lefty reliever, someone will give him work, but the Red Sox won't be the ones to do it.

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.

Red Sox have began preliminary talks with Koji Uehara about staying in Boston.

It is still unsure whether he will stay or not, but the discussions have at least begun. Uehara enjoyed a great two year run in Boston, but he lost his closer job this season. Uehara had a 6-5 record with 26 saves and a 2.52 ERA in 2014.

Red Sox have hired Chili Davis as hitting coach.

The Red Sox will look to the expertise of Davis to help with their offense. Davis was .274 career hitter with 350 home runs, and 1,372 RBIs. Davis enjoyed a 19-year career in the big leagues.

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.

Ryan Dempster will not pursue a deal this offseason and is now officially retired. 

Dempster sat out the entire 2014 season with the plan of deciding on his future after the season concluded. Well, the season isn't quite over, but Dempster has decided to retire as a World Series Champion after winning a ring with Boston last year. He will finish his career with a record of 132-133, an ERA of 4.35, a WHIP of 1.43, 87 saves, and a K/9 of 7.8 over 16 seasons with Florida, Cincinnati, Chicago, Texas, and Boston.

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.
