Possible $45M bidding war on Cuban outfielder speeding up

Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo had a private workout with the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday in Clearwater, Fla., and could sign with a big league team by this weekend.

Some believe the 27-year-old Castillo, who has flashed impressive power and speed tools, could garner between $30 million and $45 million in open bidding.

General manager Brian Cashman said the Yankees, who sent four representatives to Castillo’s showcase in Florida on Saturday, did not have a private workout scheduled. The Red Sox were another team rumored to be setting up an exclusive look.
