Ryan Sweeney Injury: Red Sox OF Added To Disabled List, Ryan Kalish Called Up

The Boston Red Sox added outfielder Ryan Sweeney to the 15-day disabled list on Sunday. To replace him, the Red Sox will bring outfielder Ryan Kalish up from Triple-A Pawtucket, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

Sweeney is dealing with a toe injury, the specifics of which were not revealed by the team. In his last seven games, the 27-year-old left hander is hitting just .158. Through 52 games this season, Sweeney is hitting .292/.330/.404 with 19 runs, 13 RBI and no home runs.

Kalish has been on fire in the minor leagues this season. In nine games with Triple-A Pawtucket, he has four home runs, 10 RBI and a .378 batting average. Kalish was activated off the major league disabled list on June 9 and optioned to Pawtucket immediately thereafter. He saw action in 53 major league games last season, hitting .252 with a .710 OPS.
