According to Nick Cafardo the Boston Globe, Ryan Sweeney has been placed on the 15 day DL with an injured toe. Ryan Kalish has been added to the major league roster to fill Sweeney’s roster spot.
Kalish had hit .378/.477/.757 with 4 home runs and 2 doubles in 9 games for the AAA PawSox. He missed a lot of last season with a shoulder injury, and some of this season, but he came back swinging this year and now he’s back with the big league club.
In 2010, he hit .252/.305/.405 with 4 home runs, 11 doubles, and a triple in 53 games with the big league club. Needless to say, Red Sox fans are hoping that Kalish can provide the spark that this team desperately needs.
