He probably won't play an inning for Boston all year.
The left fielder, who signed a seven-year, $72.5-million contract in August 2014, no longer is on 40-man roster. And the Red Sox want to stay under the $195 million tax threshold this season. For every day a player is on the 25-man, his contract counts toward the payroll. So he might not play in the majors this year because of his contract.
But but BUT... GET THIS: Rusney has adjusted his swing, and he's 6 for 11!
