BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish will have surgery on his right shoulder. He is expected to miss spring training.

Dr. Lewis Yocum will perform the operation on Tuesday, the team said.

Kalish missed much of last season recovering from surgery on his left shoulder. He batted .229 with zero homers and five RBIs in 36 games for the Red Sox.

The team has signed former outfielder Ryan Sweeney to a minor-league deal.
