Red Sox place Ryan Sweeney on disabled list, call up Ryan Kalish
The Red Sox placed Ryan Sweeney on the disabled list with a toe injury Sunday, and as a corresponding move, they have called on Ryan Kalish, who will become the 13th player to see time in the Red Sox outfield this season.
Ryan Kalish will make his 2012 Red Sox debut Sunday night in center field. And when he does, he'll be the 13th player to see time in the Red Sox outfield this season -- and that does not include rehabbing Carl Crawford.
The Red Sox have placed Ryan Sweeney on the disabled list with a toe injury Sunday, the club announced, and as a corresponding move, they've called on Kalish.
Kalish, 24, had shoulder and neck injuries throughout last season and was forced to undergo offseason surgery to get healthy. He has only played in six rehab games and then nine Triple-A games since the Red Sox activated and optioned him. In those nine Triple-A games, Kalish hit .378/.477/.757 with four homers, 10 RBI, 11 runs and three stolen bases.
Kalish played 53 games for the Red Sox back in 2010, hitting .252/.305/.405 with four homers, 24 RBI, 26 runs and 10 stolen bases.
The following players have now seen time in the Red Sox outfield this season: Kalish, Sweeney, Cody Ross, Marlon Byrd, Daniel Nava, Darnell McDonald, Scott Podsednik, Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jason Repko, Che-Hsuan Lin, Lars Anderson and Nate Spears. And to reiterate: Carl Crawford is currently rehabbing from an elbow injury.
