Former Spinners outfielder called up to the Boston Red Sox.

Ryan Kalish called up to play for Boston Red Sox after trading deadline passes

Lowell, MA – 2007 Lowell Spinners outfielder Ryan Kalish became the 42nd former Spinner to make his Major League Debut as he went 2-for-4 with an RBI as he started in left field.

Kalish, one of the Red Sox top prospects, joined the team in place of Jeremy Hermida, who was designated for assignment. On a day when many top prospects were not only changing teams but moving to entirely different organizations, Kalish made his big league debut.

Joining Kalish on the ride to Fenway was left-handed reliever Dustin Richardson, a teammate of Kalish at many stops along the way, including Lowell at the end of the 2006 season after Kalish was called up from the Gulf Coast League to finish the season.

Kalish was one of the most impressive players on the field during his stint in Lowell before his season ended prematurely with a broken hamate bone.

Congrats, Ryan!
