Red Sox put OF Sweeney on DL, recall Kalish
The Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Ryan Sweeney on the 15-day
disabled list Sunday with irritation in a bone in his left
Sweeney was hitting .292 with no homers and 13 RBIs this season
and is the 12th Red Sox player currently on the disabled list.
Boston recalled outfielder Ryan Kalish from Triple-A Pawtucket
to replace Sweeney before facing the Chicago Cubs on Sunday
Kalish, 24, underwent neck surgery last year and an off-season
operation to repair a torn labrum. He was activated from the 60-day
disabled list June 9 and sent to Pawtucket. In nine games in
Triple-A, he hit .378 with four homers and 10 RBIs.
