Nine months ago, Ryan Kalish tried to remain a patient man in Portland. He was struggling in the first month of the Sea Dogs season and looked nowhere near a promotion.
By May, Kalish was in Pawtucket. By the end of July, Ryan was a major leaguer for the rest of the season.
Now he is coming back to Portland this week for the Sea Dogs Hot Stove Dinner. See the story.
Another interesting item comes from the New York Daily News reporting that Yankees owners Hal and Hank Steinbrenner overruled general manager Brian Cashman to sign free agent reliever Rafael Soriano.
Cashman initially said the Yankees were not going to pursue Soriano.
But the bosses apparently did not like the look of their bullpen without him.Tweet
