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.

Red Sox option SP Joe Kelly to Triple-A Pawtucket
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox optioned starting pitcher Joe Kelly to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. Justin Masterson will replace Kelly in the rotation, starting Sunday against the Rays. 

“The options would have been put him in the bullpen or send him down to start,” manager John Farrell said, per WEEI.com. “This centers around consistent command with the baseball and his pitches.

"It’s certainly not stuff, it’s not athleticism. The frustrating part for Joe and for all involved is that when you see an athlete with his ability and it doesn’t translate to the consistent command of his pitches, that’s what is continually being addressed. Felt like the uncertainty of pitching schedule coming out of the bullpen, best served to achieve this through consistent work in between starts starting in Pawtucket.”

Kelly is 2-5 with a 5.67 ERA through 14 starts. He is is 1-5 with a 6.39 ERA in his last 12 starts. He is striking out 7.2 batters per nine innings and walking 3.7 batters per nine innings.

Brian Johnson an option to replace Joe Kelly in Red Sox rotation?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher prospect Brian Johnson had another strong outing for Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on one hit and one walk in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven.

The left-hander is 8-4 with a 2.57 ERA through 14 starts and continues to push for a spot in the major-league rotation. It appears the Red Sox are thinking about it, but general manager Ben Cherington isn't sure when they will make the call to bring the 2012 first-round pick to the majors.

“It seems that it’s more a question of when and not if that he’ll get an opportunity at some point,” Cherington said, per WEEI.com. “We have not made any decision on as to when that will be, but he’s pitching his way into the conversation, just like other guys have before him so we’ll see, but he threw well.”

With Joe Kelly struggling, the Red Sox could bring up Johnson from the minors to take his spot in the rotation. However, Cherington said the two moves are not related.

“John [Farrell] and I will get together on [Kelly Thursday], and we’re certainly trying to figure out what the right plan is for Joe to help him make a step forward,” he said. “We know he’s got the ability to be better than he has been, and knows that, so we’re working through a plan to try to address that, but they are not directly related in my mind.”

Re Sox haven't decided yet if Joe Kelly will make next start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that no decision has been made yet on whether Joe Kelly will make his next start, per The Boston Globe. Kelly is currently lined up to start Sunday at Tampa Bay.

“The primary goal is we’ve got to get Joe to deliver the ball more consistently," Farrell said, per WEEI.com. "For a guy that’s that athletic, you would think his athleticism would allow him to repeat a deliver to command a baseball better. There’s no questioning that the walks are up a tick on a per nine innings as are the hits so all that suggests that commanding the strike zone is inconsistent. And we’re working to get that ironed out more."

Kelly is 1-5 with a 6.39 ERA in his last 12 starts.

Red Sox SP Joe Kelly allows five runs in Tuesday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly found trouble in the second inning and the team never recovered during Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Orioles.

"My command was off today," Kelly said, per MLB.com. "I couldn't throw the fastball where I wanted to and fell behind some hitters, which ultimately led to the big inning there and ended up running out of the game there."

Kelly allowed five runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 innings of work. He struck out two and walked two during the contest. His worst inning came in the second when he gave up four runs, including a three-run home run to David Lough. He is now 2-5 with a 5.67 ERA.

Kelly has not received a win or a quality start in his last three starts. After the game, manager John Farrell was not sure when Kelly would receive his next start, reports the Providence Journal.

"We're certainly aware of the up and down path for Joe," he said.
