Ryan Sweeney Activated For Game 2 Of Doubleheader Between Red Sox And Yankees

Ryan Sweeney has been activated from the disabled list for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Sweeney spent three weeks on the disabled list with a stress fracture in his toe. He has also had a concussion this season.

Ryan Kalish has been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for Sweeney. Kalish struggled in his 17 games with Boston this season, hitting .232 with a .522 OPS. The 24-year-old will get some much needed seasoning in the minors, and could make his way back to Boston at some point.

Sweeney is hitting .292 with a .734 OPS in 52 games this season. He will start at center field and hit seventh in the batting order facing Yankees starter Phil Hughes. The Red Sox dropped the first doubleheader, 6-1, Saturday afternoon.
