Realistic Timetable For Ryan Kalish Is Early July

Back In Around Five Months
Initially, all the Red Sox would say about Ryan Kalish's surgery timetable was that he'd miss "all of Spring Training". None of us took that ridiculously optimistic assessment seriously—especially after all the Red Sox medical debacles over the last few years. So, now we're told that we can look for Kalish to begin platooning with Jonny Gomes in left around July 1st—after the All-Star break to be real about it. So, another half-season lost to Kalish, who's "youth" is running out pretty quickly. There was so much promise for the kid after the 2010 season, but now we will have to wait and see—again.
