Kalish to begin rehab assignment tonight with Salem


Ryan Kalish (Kelly O'Connor)
According to SoxProspects Senior Columnist Jon Meoli, outfielder Ryan Kalish will begin rehabbing in Salem tonight while batting third in the designated hitter position. He is recovering from surgery on his left shoulder labrum undergone in November 2011.

Kalish, 24, first went down in April 2011, after playing just two weeks with the Pawtucket Red Sox, following a diving play in the outfield that resulted in a partial tear of the labrum. The decision was made to initially treat this injury with rehabilitation and rest, which seemingly went well as he was first getting close to starting a rehab assignment in June. However, that got delayed when he developed pain in his upper trap/neck area. He was finally able to get back on the field August 8 with the PawSox after a two-game rehab stint with Lowell. This was short-lived also though, as he returned to the disabled list with neck pain after 8 games.

Kalish is not expected to be ready to help the big league club in the immediate future, but this placement is an encouraging sign that the rehab progressing steadily.
