Outfielder Ryan Kalish, one of the Boston Red Sox' top outfield prospects, was removed from the Pawtucket Red Sox' game against Syracuse on Tuesday at McCoy Stadium after suffering a shoulder injury while diving for a ball in right field in the second inning.
He had X-rays taken at Pawtucket Memorial Hospita. Pawtucket's vice-president of public relations, Bill Wanless, said that Kalish's arm was put in a sling.
For now, the team is describing his injury as a "jammed shoulder." Kalish has not yet been placed on the disabled list. He will meet with Dr. Thomas Gill to be evaluated on Friday.
"We'll see," PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler told the Providence Journal in reference to Kalish's status after the game. "It didn't look real serious, but you never know. It was sore. It was hurting."
