Red Sox SP Joe Kelly clobbered again Monday night
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One might have believed it unlikely that Red Sox starter Joe Kelly would pitch worse Monday night than he had been in recent outings. But he pulled it off.

Kelly was rocked for five runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings before his merciful removal in Boston. He could only be thankful that his team scored enough runs to keep him from accepting his third straight defeat.

The right-hander barely survived the first. He allowed three extra-base hits to start the game, including an RBI triple by Tyler Saladino and run-scoring double by Melky Cabrera. He let the first six batters reach in the four-run frame. A double and RBI single by Jose Abreu in the third all but signaled his departure.

Kelly has given up 20 runs in his last 23 1/3 innings pitched in weakening his ERA on the year to 5.94, its highest point since May 25.

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly lousy again in loss to Astros
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox were hoping veteran starter Joe Kelly would perform far better after his promotion from Triple-A Pawtucket than he did before it.

So much for hope - at least for one night.

Kelly was miserable again in his first start for Boston since June 23. He allowed four runs on six hits - including three home runs - in 5 1/3 innings to take his sixth loss in eight decisions. Kelly walked one and struck out six.

He now owns a 5.74 ERA after surrendering two blasts to Preston Tucker and another to Evan Gattis.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox will promote pitcher Joe Kelly from Triple-A to make Wednesday's start at Houston, reports WEEI.com. Kelly went 2-5 with a 5.67 ERA in 14 starts earlier this season before being demoted.

The Red Sox will then turn to pitcher Wade Miley to make Thursday's start with the rest of the rotation getting pushed back. Miley is 8-8 with a 4.49 ERA in 19 starts this season.

Red Sox minor-league SP Joe Kelly leaves start with arm injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox demoted veteran starter Joe Kelly was removed from his Wednesday start with an apparent arm injury sustained on a line drive, per the Times-Express.

The liner hit off his right forearm and sent him immediately to the clubhouse.

Kelly was sent down by Boston on June 25 after compiling a 2-5 record and 5.67 ERA. He performed well in his first start at Triple-A Pawtucket.

John Farrell had spoken about Kelly as a possible bullpen option upon his return, but the latest development could change the situation.

Joe Kelly thrives in first Triple-A start behind improved fastball command
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Following his demotion to the minors, Red Sox starting pitcher Joe Kelly showed a lot of positive signs in his first start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and one walk in seven innings. He also struck out four.

"The fastball command was a lot better," Kelly said, per The Providence Journal. "It's important obviously to get ahead of hitters with well-located fastballs, especially against this team which is aggressive. I tried to get some quick outs and easy outs."

Kelly threw 14 of 26 first-pitch strikes. He also threw 59 of 94 pitches for strikes, while getting 13 strikes looking and eight swinging strikes, per Baseball-Reference.com.

"I made a conscious effort to mix some pitches today and throw inside to hitters, and I feel like I was able to do that effectively," Kelly said.
