      Red Sox's Joe Kelly: In starting rotation

      Kelly was assured by manager John Farrell that he will be in Boston's starting rotation when the 2016 season begins, the Boston Herald reports. Kelly may start the season in the rotation, but if he gets off to a slow start, Farrell's in no position to be patient with him. Farrell, a manager that's guided Boston to two consecutive last-place finishes, could be forced to relegate Kelly to the bullpen or Triple-A and use one of the team's depth-starting options.

      Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Avoids arbitration with Red Sox

      Kelly agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, the Boston Herald's Jason Mastrodonato reports. He will be in competition for a rotation spot in spring training, and of the back-end options in Boston, Kelly has as much upside as anyone. The righty notched a 3.77 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 59.2 innings in the second half last season, and he could be a sleeper candidate thanks to a fastball that can touch 99 mph. Make sure to follow his performance in spring training leading up to drafts, as he could make for a nice endgame play in deeper leagues if it appears he is one of the frontrunners for the final rotation spot.

      Red Sox plan to keep pitcher Joe Kelly as a starter in 2016

      Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski prefers pitcher Joe Kelly (shoulder) as a starter, the Boston Globe reports. The right-handed Kelly, who has been shut down for the season with soreness in his shoulder, had been considered as a candidate for the bullpen. Dombrowski feels there's more value in a pitcher who can start and eat up innings and feels that's how Kelly is best deployed.

      Red Sox SP Joe Kelly has shoulder soreness; injury not serious

      Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly is just dealing with right shoulder soreness and the issue isn't serious, 93.7 WEEI FM reports. Kelly was shut down for the season due to the shoulder issue, but fortunately there's nothing more serious underlying. The 27-year-old will finish the season posting a 4.82 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with 110 strikeouts over 134.1 innings. He will enter the offseason in his first year of arbitration, but the injury shouldn't have much impact on the negotiations nor his availability for the 2016 season.

      Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (shoulder) to miss rest of season

      Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly (shoulder) has been officially shut down for the season, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Interim manager Torey Lovullo indicated this was likely after Kelly's outing Tuesday was cut short by shoulder tightness/fatigue, but the team officially ended the right-hander's 2015 season Wednesday. Kelly has been sent back to Boston for an MRI on the shoulder. Rich Hill, who shined in his first start, figures to stick in the Boston rotation.

      Report: Rex Sox SP Joe Kelly likely out for season

      Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly (shoulder) will likely be shut down for the season, The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports. He left Tuesday's start with right shoulder tightness/fatigue, so it makes sense that the Red Sox won't push their luck with him over the final two-to-three weeks of the season. Kelly really shined down the stretch prior to the injury, so he could be a trendy option heading into 2016 if he can prove he is healthy in spring training.

      Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly leaves Tuesday start with shoulder injury

      Red Sox starter Joe Kelly left Tuesday's start with right shoulder tightness/fatigue, the Providence Journal's Tim Britton reports. He started off the game in excellent form over the first two innings, but things unraveled in the third inning, as he gave up four runs (three earned) while recording just one out before exiting. With only a little more than two weeks remaining in the regular season it's quite possible that Kelly won't pitch again in 2015.

      Red Sox SP Joe Kelly wins fifth straight in stifling White Sox

      It took a stint in the minors and a few rotten starts thereafter, but maybe Red Sox right-hander Joe Kelly has finally found himself.
