Ex-Sox OF Ryan Kalish Signs With Blue Jays

Kalish With A Young Fan
He made it to the big leagues with the Red Sox in 2010—and was considered one of the bright stars on the Fenway horizon. Then, injuries piled up on Ryan Kalish and pushed his career development into a Twilight Zone of frustration. Then, last year, his former GM Theo Epstein gave him a shot with the Cubbies. In 57 games, Kalish hit just .248. Now, he's being given another chance. The Toronto Blue Jays have signed Kalish to a minor-league deal—with an invitation to major league Spring Training. Here's hoping Ryan puts it together in Florida and wins a spot on the Blue Jay's roster.
