That obviously isn’t good news for the Red Sox or Kalish, but let’s keep in mind that things could certainly change as the 24-year-old progresses in his rehab.

Report: Jason Varitek Not a Likely Candidate to Replace Gary Tuck as Red Sox’ Bullpen Coach

WEEI: Sox sign Lyle Overbay to a minor-league deal

The Red Sox may have filled the most obvious hole on their roster today by agreeing to a minor-league deal with Lyle Overbay, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI. I was all ready to line up joke after joke about Overbay being old (36) and always hurt, but really on a minor-league deal this is a solid move. He's a patient hitter (career OBP .353 vs. AVG of .270) with plenty of...
