Red Sox's Joe Kelly: In starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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's finish to the 2015 season -- 8-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his last nine starts -- makes him an attractive sleeper entering 2016, but manager John Farrell is no position to be patient. If Kelly gets off to a slow start, 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 starters.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Avoids arbitration with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Kelly agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Boston 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
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

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
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.
