  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Surprise save chance

    Kelly allowed two earned runs on two hits while striking out one to earn the save against the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Kelly surprisingly entered the game in the ninth inning, following Kendall Graveman -- the presumed closer in the absence of Liam Hendriks (forearm). Though Kelly managed to tally his first save of the season and sixth of his career, he made things interesting by allowing a single and a home run with one out. It is worth noting that Graveman was used to face the middle of Toronto's dangerous order, so it would be premature to now say Kelly is definitely the fill-in closer.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Activated Tuesday

    Kelly (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

    He probably wouldn't be the first option, but with Liam Hendriks (forearm strain) out indefinitely, there could be saves available in the Chicago bullpen. Kendall Graveman seems like the most likely option to get the first chance to fill in for Hendriks. Kelly had a rough start to the season but logged four scoreless appearances prior to landing on the shelf.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Expected to return Tuesday

    Kelly (hamstring) is expected to be reinstated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Kelly tossed over 20 pitches during a simulated game Sunday, and he'll be able to rejoin the White Sox's bullpen without making any rehab appearances. Over his seven major-league outings prior to his absence, he posted a 9.53 ERA and 2.47 WHIP in 5.2 innings.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: On track for activation next week

    Kelly (hamstring) threw over 20 pitches in a simulated game Sunday and could be activated from the 15-day injured list during the upcoming week, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    He will on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte to begin the week, but it could be a very brief stint since Kelly says he's ready to go. Once activated, Kelly will operate in a mid-leverage role.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Bullpen session on tap

    Kelly (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    It will be the right-hander's first bullpen session since landing on the injured list two weeks ago with a strained left hamstring. Kelly expects to require two bullpen sessions and potentially one rehab outing before rejoining the active roster.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Leaves with hamstring tightness

    Kelly was removed from Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with left hamstring tightness.

    Kelly needed only seven pitches to strike out the only two batters he faced during the eighth inning, but he appeared to tweak his hamstring on his last pitch and promptly exited the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear and the veteran right-hander will be evaluated further Thursday morning, so he's likely to be unavailable for the series finale versus Boston.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Lands on injured list

    Kelly was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a strained left hamstring.

    Kelly exited Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with the injury and will now be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks. He'll be eligible to be activated as early as June 10, but Kelly said he's dealing with a Grade 2 strain and expects to be sidelined for approximately 3-4 weeks, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Tanner Banks was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Implodes in loss

    Kelly (0-1) allowed five earned runs on one hit and four walks while striking out one across 0.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Yankees.

    Kelly entered the game in the eighth inning with the score tied at 7-7. He retired the first two batters he faced but proceeded to walk the next three hitters, leading to his disastrous outing. Kelly has made two appearances since returning from a biceps injury, and he figures to maintain a high-leverage role in the White Sox bullpen despite this poor outing.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Tallies hold in debut

    Kelly allowed two hits and struck out one across a scoreless inning to record a hold Monday against the Guardians.

    Kelly made his White Sox debut after beginning the season on the injured list due to a biceps strain. He entered the game in the seventh inning with a three-run lead and surrendered two singles but got out of the jam unscathed. Kelly figures to maintain a high-leverage role in the Chicago bullpen, but he is unlikely to draw regular save chances.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Reinstated from IL

    Kelly (biceps) was activated off the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Kelly will join the White Sox ahead of their three-game series against the Guardians on Monday. The right-hander had been nursing a biceps strain since last October, but after signing with the team in the offseason, he'll finally be available to make his debut for Chicago in the coming days. In 48 appearances with the Dodgers last season, Kelly produced a 2.86 ERA and 0.98 WHIP while striking out 50 batters over 44 innings.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Effective in rehab outings

    Kelly (biceps) has thrown two scoreless innings while striking out three and walking one while on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte.

    Kelly began the rehab assignment May 1, and he pitched again three days later. He is targeting a return to the White Sox at some point during the team's upcoming series against Cleveland and appears to be on track to do so. The White Sox boast a deep bullpen, but Kelly should still have the chance to pitch in high-leverage situations upon his activation.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Targeting return next week

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Monday that he believes Kelly (biceps) will be ready to return from the 10-day injured list early next week, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    Kelly, who has been on the shelf all season while recovering from a right biceps strain, made his first rehab appearance at Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday. He turned in a scoreless inning in his 2022 debut, striking out one while hitting a batter and allowing no other baserunners. The White Sox will likely want to see Kelly make at least two or three more appearances in the minors before adding him back to the big-league bullpen, where he'll be part of the bridge to closer Liam Hendriks.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Starting rehab assignment Sunday

    Kelly (biceps) will start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Kelly was rumored to be nearing a rehab assignment Tuesday and now he has an official start date set for this weekend. The righty reliever signed with the White Sox in the offseason after three seasons with the Dodgers, but he's yet to make his season debut as he has been nursing a nerve issue in his arm. He posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 10 innings with the Dodgers in 2021. When healthy, Kelly will likely operate as a high-leverage option in the late innings for the White Sox.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Nearing rehab assignment

    Kelly (biceps) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Kelly is in the final stages of recovery from a biceps strain which dates back to last October. He's expected to pitch one more time at the team's spring training complex and will embark on a rehab assignment if that outing goes well.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Almost ready to face hitters

    Manager Tony La Russa said Kelly (biceps) is throwing in the mid-90s with no discomfort and is scheduled to face live hitters this week, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Kelly is working out at the White Sox's extended spring training in Arizona, and he may be able to return from the injured list without a minor-league rehab assignment. Even if the 33-year-old does head to the minors, it shouldn't delay his return very long.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Could head to minors by late April

    White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that Kelly (biceps) could soon face hitters at extended spring training before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment before the end of April, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Kelly hasn't experienced any setbacks from the strained right biceps he sustained while pitching with the Dodgers in the NLCS last year, but the slow progression in his recovery over the offseason resulted in him being placed on the White Sox's 10-day injured list to begin the season. Since joining Chicago in spring training, Kelly has gradually been advancing through his throwing program, and he appears close to reaching the final phase of his rehab. If he continues to avoid setbacks, Kelly looks like he could be ready to return from the IL by early May, if not the final week of April.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Placed on 10-day IL

    Kelly (biceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to April 4.

    Kelly landed a two-year contract with the White Sox in mid-March, but he'll be unavailable to begin the regular season due to a nerve issue related to the biceps strain he sustained while pitching for the Dodgers in the NLCS last year. It's not clear whether he'll be able to return after spending the minimum of 10 days on the IL, but he'll likely be in the mix for a setup role once healthy since Craig Kimbrel was recently traded to the Dodgers.

  • White Sox's Joe Kelly: Won't be ready for Opening Day

    White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Monday that Kelly (biceps) isn't expected to be ready to pitch by Opening Day, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Hahn provided the update on Kelly's condition after the White Sox officially confirmed the reliever's signing on a two-year, $17 million contract. Though Hahn acknowledged that Kelly himself would probably say that he's on track for the start of the season, the White Sox are inclined to take a more cautious approach with the right-hander while he continues to build back up from a nerve issue related to the biceps strain he sustained during the NLCS while pitching for the Dodgers last fall. Once healthy, Kelly is expected to slot into a middle-relief role for a White Sox bullpen that is overflowing with impressive arms.
