After not getting an at-bat since Sept. 11, Ryan Kalish confirmed that he is for all intent and purposes shut down for the remainder of the season.
Prior to the Red Sox' game against the Orioles, Sunday, Sox manager Bobby Valentine surmised that Kalish might be able to pinch-run, but said he would only play the outfielder if "an emergency arises."
Kalish has been battling fatigue in his right shoulder and neck area, both of which he had previously injured.
"Yes, I would think so," said Kalish when asked if he was done for the season. "It's come to the point where I'm not feeling that great, just overall, and my right shoulder has kind of acted up. I think everybody is on board where it's just better.
"The main concern is for me to be ready next year. A couple of days ago we were talking about it and at this point with nine games to go we're not going to push it too hard just to get out there the last...
BALTIMORE -- Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has left the team and may not play tonight against the Patriots after the death of his younger brother early Sunday morning in a motorcycle accident.
Smith delivered the news of his brother's death via his Twitter feed.
I can't believe my little brother is gone...be thankful for your loved ones and tell them you love them...this is the hardest thing ever.
He later tweeted a picture of himself standing with his young brother wearing Smith's No. 82 jersey.
The Ravens say Smith will spend the day with his family, which is from Virginia, and leave the decision on whether to play tonight up to the second-year receiver.
Smith set Ravens' rookie records in 2011, making 50 catches for 841 yards and a team-leading seven touchdowns. He has four catches for 108 yards through the Ravens' first two games this season.
