Outfielder Ryan Kalish cleared waivers, accepted assignment to Triple-A Iowa
The Cubs posted Sunday afternoon that outfielder Ryan Kalish cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa. According to Carrie Muskat, Kalish will report to the I-Cubs.
Ryan Kalish was designated for assignment Saturday to make room for Miguel Montero on the 25-man roster. The Cubs cleared a spot on the 40-man roster with the decision to send out Kalish. The Cubs’ 40-man roster officially stands at 39 players.
Ryan Kalish played in seven games for the Cubs after his contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on May 3. Kalish was 2-for-7 with a walk and two RBI (.286/.444/.286/.730).
Kalish delivered a pinch-hit, two-out, two-run single against the Nationals on May 7 that tied a game the Cubs eventually won 8-5.
Prior to the call-up, Ryan Kalish was hitting very well for the Iowa Cubs. In 20 games, Kalish put together a .368/.471/.509 slash line with four doubles and two triples for a .980 OPS.
