The Pirates are expected to update the return timetable for Kela (COVID) on Wednesday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Kela threw an 18-pitch, live batting practice Tuesday. Depending on how he feels Wednesday, the right-hander could slot back into the closer role as soon as Thursday. With the trade deadline less than three weeks away, there's a good chance Kela is traded, provided he proves his health in the interim.
