PawSox Roster Move – August 16, 2012
There was a delay Wednesday night before the bottom of the the third inning began as Ryan Kalish walked from his position in centerfield to the PawSox dugout and was taken out of the game.
Kalish, a former Red Sox Rookie of the Year and Red Sox Minor League Offensive Player of the Year, has tremendous talent but missed much of 2011 due to injuries (left shoulder and neck).
Fortunately, manager Arnie Beyeler told Brendan McGair (@BWMcGair03) of the Pawtucket Times that Kalish simply twisted his ankle when sliding into second base and is day-to-day.
A short time before yesterday’s doubleheader against Scranton-Wilkes/Barre, the PawSox had the following roster moves:
- Outfielder Alex Hassan has been placed on the seven-day disabled list (retroactive to August 14). Although we haven’t been told the exact injury for Hassan, he did recently spend some time on the DL as a result of fouling a pitch off his left shin. The injury required five stitches and forced him to miss from July 31 – August 4.
- Infielder Tony Thomas has been activated from the disabled list with a calf strain. Thomas spent time on the shelf this season from June 27 – July 31 with finger and wrist injuries, but days later was DL’d again with calf injury. In his first at-bat since being activated yesterday, Thomas connected on a hard-hit single and finished 1-for-2 in a rain-shortened 5-2 win.
