Report: Ryan Kalish Promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket

Fresh off Monday's televised game on NESN, Double-A Portland Sea Dog outfielder Ryan Kalish has been promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket, The Portland Press Herald reports. WEEI.com confirmed the news on Monday night.

Kalish went 2-for-4 on Monday against the New Britain Rock Cats with a double and three runs scored. That pushed his season average to .293 with a .404 on-base percentage and .527 slugging percentage. Now, the 22-year-old will likely man right field for the PawSox.

Kalish's linebacker body, playing style and numbers have drawn comparisons to Trot Nixon with a little less power (although the potential is there for more), and some feel he could make his major league debut as early as this season.
