Pirates' Keone Kela: Makes successful return
Kela pitched a scoreless inning Wednesday against the Cardinals, allowing one hit while striking out one batter.
The Pirates eased him back into action in a blowout loss, his first appearance since May 4, and the results were encouraging. Kela threw his fastball harder (96.3 mph) and more often (71.4 percent) than his season marks (95.9 mph, 57.1 percent). The right-hander would neither confirm nor deny that he was involved in an altercation with a coach Monday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the reliever moved to another organization. He hit 97 mph with his fastball and there are plenty of contenders searching for relief help.
