Castillo is a candidate to be the leadoff hitter, but he's behind others at this point, WEEI.com reports.

Analysis:

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Brock Holt, Shane Victorino and Mookie Betts are the most likely candidates to bat leadoff, but said Castillo may evolve into that role over time. Farrell added that the leadoff job would not be solely dependent on speed, indicating that on-base ability "is the primary driver there."
