The Boston Red Sox continue to shuffle outfielders on and off the roster at an amazing rate. Since Sunday, the Red Sox have made two more moves to help solidify their outfield.
Where do we start with this outfield? Well, Ryan Kalish made it 13 starting outfielders this year in Boston. He seems to be line for more playing time, after the Red Sox put Scott Podsednik on the DL today. It will be interesting to see what the Boston does with Podsednik, who can certainly still play but does not fit on this team when the entire outfield is healthy. Do they stash him away in Pawtucket for when rosters expand or do they try to get something for him?
As for Kalish, Red Sox fans had to be happy with the way he was described by former Red Sox manager Terry Francona on Sunday night. Kalish is a big wild card right now because a) he really has the chance to prove himself and b) the Sox could try to offer him as the centerpiece of a deal for a starting pitcher. Either way, the fact that Kalish is back is very good under the radar addition for this team right now. He absolutely killed minor league pitching in his nine game rehab assignment. To make room for Kalish, Boston put fellow outfielder Ryan Sweeney on the DL.
The Red Sox are also expected to activate Cody Ross before tonight’s game. Ross was really playing well before getting hurt and he gives them some much needed power from the right side of the plate. Both Kalish and Ross are going to play everyday for the next couple weeks in what could turn out to be a competition of sorts when everyone in the Red Sox outfield gets healthy….whenever that is.
