MLB.com’s Evan Drellich reports that Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish underwent surgery Tuesday in Los Angeles to repair a labrum tear in his right (non-throwing) shoulder. The procedure — performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum — was deemed a success.

“I really am feeling the love on my surgery today. I really appreciate all of you,” Kalish wrote on his personal Twitter page a few hours after going under the knife. He’s not expected to be ready for the start of spring training but should make a full recovery by the end of April.

Kalish batted just .229/.272/.260 with zero home runs and five RBI in 103 plate appearances last season for the Red Sox. But the 24-year-old is a former top prospect, has done some nice things in the minor leagues, and could see action as a reserve outfielder this summer in Boston if all goes well in his rehab.
