PAWTUCKET â To say that the Pawtucket Red Sox are looking forward to having Ryan Kalish back in the lineup would be a vast understatement. It appears, though, that the outfield prospect still needs more time.
On Tuesday PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler revealed that Kalish is fighting through âa neck issue, a minimal thing that keeps hindering him a bit.â The first signal to Kalish that something didn't feel quite right occurred while rehabbing his right shoulder in Fort Myers, Fla. earlier this month.

At 6 p.m. the atmosphere in Pawtucket was one to be remembered. Although the weather was overcast and gloomy, not a face in the crowd of soon-to-be graduates showed it.

PROVIDENCE â It was a match made in heaven (or, more accurately, the Statehouse): Rhode Islanders love the Boston Red Sox and are famously crazy about their license plates. Now they can have the best of both worlds.
