OF Ryan Kalish and LHP Dustin Richardson are on their way from Pawtucket to Boston, which would seem to indicate a series of roster moves and/or trades are in the works.
The Globe’s Nick Cafardo was the first to report the news. More on this as we get additional information.
Kalish has hit .294/.382/.502 in 78 games for Portland and Pawtucket this season with 13 homers and 47 RBI.
UPDATE, 3:33 p.m.: One move is that OF Jeremy Hermida has been designated for assignment, which NESN reported first. The Red Sox having given up on him after obtaining him from Florida for two low-level prospects.
Hermida hit .203 with a .257 OBP. He was 2 for 20 since coming off the disabled list with nine strikeouts.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are about to announce their deal for RHP Kerry Wood from the Indians. The Yankees will have obtained Wood, Austin Kearns and Lance Berkman in the last day.
