Ryan Kalish got hot and is now out of Portland. Kalish, 22, a left-handed outfielder, was promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket after Monday's game at Hadlock Field.
Kalish was 2-for-4 with a double and three runs. He not only went 9-for-13 in the past three games, but was batting .432 over the last 10 games.
This year, Kalish batted .293 in 41 games with the Sea Dogs, with 8 home runs and 29 RBI.
In 103 games last season in Portland, Kalish batted .271 with 13 home runs and 56 RBI. Kalish was a ninth-round draft choice out of high school in 2006.
He becomes the third player promoted to Triple-A this season, following first baseman Lars Anderson and starting pitcher Felix Doubront.
Kalish's promotion leaves the Sea Dogs short in the outfield. Jason Place recently left the team and is on the inactive list. Che-Hsuan Lin had to leave Monday's game with back spasms.
According to the Providence Journal, utility player Ryan Khoury is being sent from Pawtucket back to Portland. Khoury played the last two seasons with the Sea Dogs. He's had a limited role with Pawtucket this season.Tweet
