Player of the Week, April 9 - 19: Ryan Kalish

With an impressive .353/.511/.559 line that included 4 doubles, 1 home run, and a 12:7 walks-to-strikeouts ratio in 46 plate appearances, Salem outfielder Ryan Kalish has won SoxProspects.com Player of the Week honors for April 9-19. The speedy outfielder also stole 4 bases in 4 attempts and scored 11 runs to help put Salem at the top of the Carolina League's Southern Division standings after the first 11 games of 2009. Kalish, who just turned 21 years of age in March, batted .279/.449/.368 in Hawaii Winter Baseball this off season with a league-high 12 stolen bases. He had been voted as a 2009 Pre-Season All Star by the SoxProspects.com community and is looking forward to a healthy 2009 after a 2008 season in which he was hampered by injury.

Honorable mention goes to Portland third baseman Jorge Jimenez, who was named the Eastern League Player of the Week for April 8-19 after hitting .389/.450/.583 with 1 home run and 11 RBI.
