Hermida designated for assignment, Kalish called up to Boston

According to NESN, the Red Sox have designated outfield Jeremy Hermida for assignment and recalled outfielder Ryan Kalish from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Hermida, 26, was acquired this offseason from the Florida Marlins in exchange for pitchers Hunter Jones and Jose Alvarez. He has struggled this season in 52 games with Boston, hitting just .203/.257/.348 with 5 home runs and 27 RBI.

Kalish, 22, was originally drafted in the 9th round of the 2006 amateur draft. The left-handed outfielder is known for his gritty play and his sound defensive work. In 78 games this season between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, Kalish has hit .294/.382/.502 with 13 home runs and 47 RBI. He is currently ranked the #2 prospect on and should see immediate playing time in the Boston outfield.
