Red Sox using six-man rotation to give starters rest
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Without an off-day on Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to give his starters an extra day's rest heading into the weekend. So, the team will call up prospect Eduardo Rodriguez to start Thursday's game against the Rangers, with the rest of the rotation being pushed back a day.

Rick Porcello, who was originally scheduled to go on Thursday, will now pitch Friday. He will be followed by Steven Wright and Wade Miley, with Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz pitching the first two games of the three-game set with the Twins at home. 

The Red Sox don't have a scheduled off-day until June 8.

Red Sox want Joe Kelly to use curve more often
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

After giving up 7 runs in 1 2/3 innings on Monday, Joe Kelly met with Red Sox manager John Farrell and pitching coach Carl Willis on Tuesday morning to discuss a plan. 

"I contend and strongly believe that his curveball is a major weapon that's got to be used in his pitch mix," Farrell said, per the Boston Herald

Kelly did well in his start against Texas on May 21, when he went to his curve often. 

"He made a very tangible adjustment after three innings of work, when he went to his curveball more than his slider and slowed them down and had some quick and efficient innings. It's part of the education process of Joe as a pitcher, what makes him most effective," Farrell said.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly chased in second inning of loss vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly didn't make it out of the second inning on Monday, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits and one walk in 1 2/3 innings in his team's 7-2 loss to the Twins.

"The attitude, the feel, the energy level in the clubhouse this morning was built upon the last two days, and to go out and to have a game like today is very disappointing," Red Sox manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com.

Kelly (1-4) surrendered a run on a sacrifice fly in the first inning before the game turned ugly in the second, when he opened the frame by allowing four straight hits before recording a pair of outs, though a run scored on his second out. He then walked the next batter, served up a three-run home run and allowed a single before being pulled.

"It's not ideal, but I've just got to keep pitching," Kelly said.

Kelly owns a 6.24 ERA and 43:20 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. He's in line to face the Rangers on the road on Saturday.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly allows two runs in loss on Wednesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings of work in Boston's 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

"I made some pitches when I had to and had command of my heater," Kelly said after the game, per the Boston Herald. "We played some good defense tonight, but it’s baseball and we lost, 2-1. That guy over there pitched a good game and sometimes you just have to tip your hat."

Kelly allowed two consecutive singles in the second, putting runners on first and third. Elvis Andrus produced a sacrifice fly to score the first run. Then in the third, Robinson Chirinos blasted a solo home run to center field. 

"Fastball command pretty much nails it down," Kelly said of the key to his success. "Getting ahead of hitters and locating the pitch where I want to locate it. I didn’t really have any off-speed tonight. I went out there with just one pitch and I tried to locate it as best I can to get out of it."

Kelly, who also struck out seven and walked just one, moved his ERA to 5.13 in 47 1/3 innings of work. Kelly, now 1-3, will look to get back on track Monday against the Twins.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly allows one run in no-decision vs. Mariners
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly didn't factor into the decision on Thursday, allowing one earned run on five hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

Coming into the game on a stretch where he allowed five runs or more in four straight starts, Kelly breezed through five innings before surrendering his only run on a sixth-inning groundout, which tied the game and took him out of line for what would have been his first win since his season debut.

Kelly owns a 5.58 ERA and 36:18 K:BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Rangers at home on Wednesday.
