Baseball season has just started, and Rusney Castillo of the Red Sox is already swinging for the fences in the real estate market. His plantation-style mansion in Pinecrest, Fla., is on the market for $3.953 million.

Pinecrest, an affluent suburb of Miami, has been a hot spot for athletes as of late. Red Sox manager Alex Cora sold his place there a few years back, and NBA players Tyler Johnson, Lamar Odom, Carlos Boozer and Dion Waiters have all owned homes in the area.

Spanning nearly an acre, the gated grounds hold a resort-style pool, a covered cabana and a two-story home built in 2014. Marble floors offset shades of orange in the bright living spaces, which include a two-story foyer and expansive double-island kitchen.


A dual-sided fireplace separates a living room from a formal dining area, and the main level also holds an open-concept family room and office. French doors and picture windows bring leafy views into almost every room.

Six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms round out the 10,572-square-foot interior. A second-story terrace stretches across the front of the home, and the master suite expands to a private balcony out back.

Malgorzata Salazar and Kent Campbell of Douglas Elliman hold the listing.

A prized prospect, Castillo signed a seven-year deal with the Red Sox in 2014 worth $72.5 million. The Cuba native has waffled between the minor and major leagues since then, spending most of the last three seasons with the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox.
