Ryan Kalish has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa.

Kalish hasn't played in the bigs since 2014 but has been dominating Triple-A pitching this season. He will take over Matt Szczur's role and should get a few starts a week with Kris Bryant floating between third and outfield and Jorge Soler rotating between the bench and starting. He is really not rostering at the moment.

Matt Szczur (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Szczur was forced to leave Monday's game after feeling tightness in his hamstring and after the MRI has landed the DL. Szczur had played a fourth outfielder of sorts prior to the injury but will now hang on the bench for a couple of weeks. It is believed that he will be ready to be activated as soon as he's eligible. In the meantime Ryan Kalish has been called-up to fill his roster spot.

J.J. Hardy (foot) said he would be in walking boot for 2-3 weeks and is not sure about his timetable to return.

A walking boot is the standard first step in healing from the type of broken foot Hardy suffered. The initial timeline for his return was 6-8 weeks but it sounds like that would be news to Hardy. In the meantime Ryan Flaherty will fill in for him at short and pending any setback the original two month span should hold.

Cody Anderson is likely to be called up and start against the Royals on Saturday.

Anderson was sent down to Triple-A after just four starts but with Cleveland using just four starters since his demotion, the time has come to call him back to the big club. He is still risky until he proves that his start was an aberration but starting against the Royals could cause problems right out of the gate.

J.T. Realmuto will bat leadoff against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

This is something you don't see everyday. A catcher batting leadoff. Dee Gordon was the everyday leadoff bat but with him gone for the next 80 games, Miami now needs to see who they can put at the top to fill in for him. Realmuto does have some speed for a catcher, having the ability to steal 12-15 bags, but whether he sticks there full-time or not, only time will tell.
