Castilla out again

Preliminary X-rays showed no broken bones for Rays third baseman Vinny Castilla, hit on the right wrist in the fifth, but he is expected to miss several games.
"I would think it will take a few days because it's so sore right now," Castilla said. "If it's still bothering me in four or five days, we'll have to look at it again to see if there's anything wrong in there."
The swollen hand continues what has been the most frustrating season of Castilla's career. After five years without spending time on the disabled list, Castilla opened the year on the DL with a strained oblique muscle and went back on the shelf in June with a back injury.
Ozzie Guillen and Russ Johnson will take Castilla's spot at third.
