Sox Cut Loose Andrew Bailey And Ryan Kalish

As expected, the Red Sox non-tendered reliever Andrew Bailey—meaning, as of today, he is a free agent who can sign with any team. Boston also non-tendered outfielder Ryan Kalish—who has suffered myriad injuries over the last three years. Kalish was once thought to be the 'heir apparent' in right field, but was hit with bad luck at almost every turn in his multiple rehabilitation stints. We wish them both well in 2014. Bailey would have likely made upwards of $4 million via arbitration, and the team just couldn't risk another lost year from the guy they swapped Josh Reddick for.
