Class AAA Pawtucket placed outfielder Ryan Kalish on the disabled list today with inflammation in his right trapezius muscle.
Kalish was 5 of 31 (.161) with 10 strikeouts in eight games since returning to Pawtucket on Aug. 8. He last played on Saturday.
Kalish had been out since April after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder making a catch. Kalish also had persistent problems with his neck that delayed his return.
The lingering injuries could preclude Kalish from being added to the major league roster in September. Sources have said since April that Kalish is likely to require surgery on his shoulder after the season.
