Report: Sweeney to DL; Red Sox to call up Kalish

Ryan Kalish will join the Red Sox on Sunday as Ryan Sweeney heads to the disabled list, according to a report.

The Boston Globe reports that Sweeney will go to the 15-day disabled list to make room for Kalish. Sweeney spent time on the 7-day DL earlier this season with a concussion.

Kalish has been on fire in his nine games with the PawSox since returning from a shoulder injury. He's hit .378 with four home runs and a .477 OBP in that time. He's played just 15 games in the minors this season before getting the call to the big league club.

Kalish hasn't been healthy in over a year since he injured his shoulder making a diving catch at McCoy Stadium. He had surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck in September. He had another procedure on his labrum in November and began this season rehabbing in Fort Myers, Fla.

Report: Red Sox DH target Beltran agrees to 1-year deal with Astros

Carlos Beltran, the 39-year-old switch hitter who was a potential target of the Red Sox as a DH, agreed to a free-agent deal with the Houston Astros, ESPN's Buster Olney reported.

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that it's a one-year, $16 million deal. 

Beltran played for the Astros in 2004. He was dealt from the New York Yankees to the Texas Rangers at the July 31 trading deadline last season. He totaled 35 homers, 101 RBI and hit .295 in 2016. 

The Red Sox, looking to fill the void left by David Ortiz's retirement, will be looking for a DH at the Winter Meetings that begin next week. One possibility is the return of Mike Napoli, who played for the A.L. champion Cleveland Indians last season.
