Ryan Kalish underwent shoulder surgery yesterday and initial reports had him potentially being ready by May or so, but the actual recovery timetable put forth by the Red Sox is much less optimistic.

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that he’s expected to be sidelined for at least six months and “might not be ready to start baseball-type activities until August.” In other words, it’ll be a lost season for the former top prospect whose career has repeatedly been derailed by injuries.

Kalish turns 25 years old in March and hasn’t produced much since 2010, so it’s tough to consider him a big part of the Red Sox’s plans at this point.

    Poor guy is starting to remind me of Justin Maxwell, can’t stay healthy, and at a certain point there’s no way to make up for all of that lost development time.

    As long as Kalish is in a red sox uni I’ll be pulling for him. I hope to see him back one day, his recent injury trend makes it unlikely he’ll ever reach his ceiling but I think he can still become a serviceable MLB player.

    Hey uncle schmo you must really be pissed at the world now. I feel bad for the guy. Its a long journey for these guys to get to the bigs and to get so close and get hurt sucks. I still dont like the Red Sox remember 86 ? Down to 1 pitch and we go to the series and there is no Billy Bucks thru the wicketts. This game can be so creul. 1 pitch changed history forevever. Anyway lifes to short. Remember that Moe. God bless go Angels
