Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Kalish will have another surgery on his troublesome right (non-throwing) shoulder next week, and would be sidelined throughout spring training and miss a chance to earn a spot on the Red Sox’ Opening Day roster, a major league source said last night. The exact nature of the injury has not been disclosed, but it’s related to Kalish’s ongoing shoulder problem, the source said. The 24-year-old outfielder has dealt with continued weakness since undergoing surgery to repair a torn shoulder labrum nearly 15 months ago. Herald - Ryan Kalish to have shoulder surgery In the aftermath of news that oft-injured Ryan Kalish will undergo another shoulder surgery, the Red Sox have signed outfielder Ryan Sweeney to a minor league contract, a major league source said Friday night and later confirmed by Sweeney via Twitter.  "So excited to be back with Boston!" Sweeney wrote. "Thanks to the Red Sox for the opportunity to play there again." Herald -  Red Sox sign Ryan Sweeney to minor league contract Some disappointing 'Ryan' news this morning.  Well, not the Sweeney part (I liked him), but Kalish needing surgery.  I was really hoping to see Kalish get a decent amount of playing time this year.  That's not happening now.  The first article above states that Cherington is looking for another lefty outfielder who can also play first.  I'm not sure if the Sweeney signing calls off that search, but don't be surprised to see another retread veteran brought in to compete for a job. As far as Sweeney's return, I'm happy about that.  To be honest, I had forgotten about him this offseason.  I'm a bit shocked to see that nobody offered him a contract up to this point.  He's no future Hall of Famer, and his stats kinda sucked, but he had a few bright moments last year.  If he does make the major league squad, hopefully he'll be a bit more comfortable in his second year with the team and be a little more consistent at the plate. But with this news, prepare yourself for a whole lot of Jonny Gomes.  Who knows, maybe that won't end up being such a bad thing.
