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.

Report: Red Sox won't take Joe Kelly out of rotation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are intent on keeping Joe Kelly in their starting rotation and trying to further his development, according to WEEI.

The good news is that Kelly hasn't lost any velocity. He has thrown more 98 mph-plus pitches than any other starter in the majors this season. The bad news is that it hasn't translated into success. He owns a 1-2 record and 6.35 ERA heading into his Thursday night start in Seattle.

"Nothing mechanical," John Farrell said in regard to Kelly's struggles. "He's a good athlete that repeats his delivery and yet he yanked a number of pitches down to his glove side the other day in Toronto. It's still about Joe Kelly understanding what makes him most efficient. ... Ultimately it's in those moments in making pitch selections that are based on what's led up to that. Whether it's too many consecutive fastballs, too many consecutive breaking balls - there's a constant mix that needs to stay in play."

The 26-year-old Kelly has claimed that pitching was easier in St. Louis with defensive stalwart Yadier Molina calling all his offerings. It's not the same throwing to Red Sox rookie Blake Swihart.

"Yadier just threw out a sign and I threw it," Kelly said. "It was great. But now I'm actually better at reading games, knowing situations, I do my own scouting and I do my own video. I did a little bit of it in St. Louis, but it's more of me trying to read and watch. My stats don't show, but I feel like I'm better at it."

There has been talk of moving Kelly to the bullpen, but the former college closer has stressed that he prefers starting.

Joe Kelly remains in Red Sox rotation 'for the time being'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox changed pitching coaches, firing Juan Nieves and hiring Carl Willis, but there are no plans to make any adjustments to the starting rotation right off the bat. 

Manager John Farrell said that Joe Kelly, who has struggled, will remain in the rotation "for the time being," per WEEI. "Partly because of a chance for Carl to get involved with him and yet we don't deny the stuff that's there. ... It's a matter of how we can make him most effective."

Red Sox's Joe Kelly walks seven in loss vs. Blue Jays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly took the loss Saturday, allowing six earned runs on four hits and seven walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 7-1 defeat against the Blue Jays.

Kelly (1-2) has now given up five earned runs or more in each of his last four starts, but he had issued just eight walks in his first five starts combined before unraveling Saturday.

"Despite the number of walks early on, we're in a two-run game," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "But still, puts a couple of guys on via the walk, and then the third consecutive breaking ball to Encarnacion kind of spreads things to a five-run game."

He also allowed a home run for the fifth straight start.

"The one that really hurt us was the three-run homer," Kelly said after allowing a season-high six earned runs. "Hanging breaking ball ... just a bad pitch overall."

Kelly owns a 6.35 ERA and 34:15 K:BB ratio in 34 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mariners Thursday in Seattle.
