Joe Kelly goes seven strong in win over Dodgers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly put together a quality start in a win over the Dodgers on Saturday, improving to 2-1 on the year. Making his first start since the All-Star break, the right-hander permitted one run on four hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings of a 4-2 victory.

Kelly has allowed one earned run or fewer in all but one of his first five starts. He owns a 2.84 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 25 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Friday against the Cubs in Chicago.

Cardinals announce rotation for Dodgers series
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals have chosen to give All-Star pitcher Adam Wainwright a few extra days to rest following the break, as he will not pitch in the weekend series against the Dodgers, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Lance Lynn will start the second-half opener Friday. He will be followed by Joe Kelly and Carlos Martinez in the three-game series.

Joe Kelly clobbered in Milwaukee
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly was smashed in his first outing off the disabled list Friday.

Kelly lasted just three innings, giving up six runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out three during the outing. Kelly immediately found himself in trouble. He hit Carlos Gomez to open the game, and then proceeded to put the next two hitters on base. Aramis Ramirez managed to drive in the first run of the game with a sacrifice fly, and Khris Davis opened things up with a two-run double. After another walk, Kelly managed to get out of the inning. 

The second inning offered no relief. Kelly allowed the first two runners to reach base, and then gave up a triple to Scooter Gennett, clearing the bases. With two outs, Ryan Braun also tripled, driving in the third run of the inning. Kelly actually pitched a scoreless third inning, but was pulled after he reached his pitch count. He threw 78 pitches during the outing. 

The Cardinals managed to battle back, giving Kelly the no-decision. His next start will likely be scheduled shortly after the All-Star break.

Joe Kelly activated from DL for Friday start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals officially activated pitcher Joe Kelly from the disabled list Friday, after his recovery from a hamstring injury was completed.

Kelly has not pitched in the majors since suffering the injury in mid-April, but is set to start Friday against the Brewers. He finished his minor-league rehab assignment having allowed three runs in 10 1/3 innings for Triple-A Memphis.

Joe Kelly has some Head-to-Head value
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Joe Kelly is set to return to the Cardinals starting rotation Friday, which isn't exactly an earth-shattering development in Fantasy, but he's useful for certain formats.

Specifically, owners in Head-to-Head points leagues may want to take advantage of his relief pitcher eligibility. A quality starting pitcher tends to outscore the average closer in that format, and Kelly has been a quality starter when he's gotten the chance to start over the last three seasons. He hasn't been an especially flashy one, but that doesn't matter so much in points leagues, where strikeouts are worth only half a point.

Kelly isn't a great source of WHIP either, but he keeps runs off the board and is usually a good bet for a quality start, which is worth three points in standard CBSSports.com leagues. And while the Cardinals haven't had great success offensively this year, I think their talent eventually wins out and they make the playoffs as a wild card. A late-season surge would probably be reflected in Kelly's win-loss record.

Again, he's not the most exciting pitcher, and if I wanted a starting pitcher who I could slot as a reliever, I'd turn to Kevin Gausman, Carlos Martinez or Rubby De La Rosa before resorting to him. But Kelly has his place in Fantasy.
