Sweeney to DL, Kalish recalled

WEEI.com has confirmed a Boston Globe report that the Red Sox will call up Ryan Kalish from Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday. Ryan Sweeney is expected to go the disabled list with a toe injury to make room for Kalish, who will be in uniform on Sunday at Wrigley Field as the Sox finish a three-game series with the Cubs.

The 24-year-old Kalish, who played 53 games for the Red Sox in 2010, injured his shoulder making a diving catch in center field for Pawtucket in April 2011. He came back to play 10 games for Pawtucket in August 2011 but missed the rest of the season with a bulging disk in his neck. Kalish had surgery on his neck last September and then had shoulder surgery two months later. He was activated at Pawtucket on June 5 and hit .378 in nine games with four homers, 10 RBIs and a .757 slugging percentage.

Salty powers Sox to win in Chicago

CHICAGO -- Jarrod Saltalamacchia blasted a two-run homer to give the Red Sox an early lead they would never relinquish, while Jon Lester continued to show the return of his swing-and-miss arsenal, as the Red Sox claimed a 4-3 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Saltalamacchia went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer and a walk, ending a seven-game stretch in which he did not have an extra-base hit. His two-run shot to right in the fourth was his 12th of the season, and he currently leads the majors in home runs by a catcher. The Sox would later plate two more runs on RBI singles by Scott Podsednik and Will Middlebrooks to claim a 4-0 cushion, enough to permit Lester a seventh-inning, three-run falter after he'd opened the game with six dominant innings.

Lester (4-4, 4.53 ERA) went 6 2/3 innings, getting touched for all three of the runs he permitted in the seventh while allowing seven hits, walking one and striking out eight. In his last four...

Beckett may get thumb treated while on DL

CHICAGO -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that if this were the postseason, Josh Beckett could still be pitching through his current right shoulder inflammation. But, with more than half of the season still in front of them, the team felt that the best course with regards to the injured pitcher -- who was going to miss at least one start -- was to instead to commit to having him miss at least two outings and put him on the disabled list.

"He’s got some inflammation that’s got to calm down and take the time, whatever time it takes to do it," said Valentine. "We’re going to take the conservative route."

Beckett is 4-7 with a 4.14 ERA, and has thrown at least seven innings in each of his last six starts and in eight total this year (a number that is tied with Justin Verlander for second in the American League). Valentine alluded at one point to the idea that the pitcher faces a "strength issue" in...
