Dave Dombrowski spoke about a wide range of topics during a radio appearance on Tuesday night on WEEI in Boston, including the Red Sox's starting outfield for next season.
"I would feel comfortable going into the season with them," Dombrowski said when asked about Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Rusney Castillo.
"I think they have the ability to be a real dynamic group together. ... Jackie Bradley and Rusney Castillo are in a spot where they showed a lot of good things, and there's no question they'll go into the season as our starting group. But they have to continue to grow like a lot of young players do. Jackie's one of the best defensive outfielders I think I've ever seen. So that's a plus, and Castillo's got the all-around game. But you look for young players to continue to grow and continue to work hard, which they do now. I think they want to be excellent players, so they'll have to continue that growth spurt. They'll also be in a position where they're going to have make adjustments, because the league will adjust to them and expose their weak spots. They'll have to work hard to eliminate those weak spots and make the adjustments."
