With Red Sox outfielder Ryan Sweeney heading to the disabled list on Tuesday, one day after he injured his hand while punching a door on the way back from the Sox dugout to the clubhouse after grounding out, a major league source said that the Red Sox will call up outfielder Ryan Kalish from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Sweeney is hitting .260/.303/.373/.675 in 63 games this year. This is the second call-up of the year for Kalish, who in 18 big league games this year, is hitting .217/.238/.250/.488. He's hitting .307/.388/.533/.922 with four homers in 18 games in Triple-A Pawtucket.
This is the second time in Kalish's career that he's been summoned to the majors on July 31, having made his big league debut exactly two years ago today.
News of Kalish's call-up was first reported by Maureen Mullen of CSNNE.com (via twitter ).
