Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Earns eighth hold Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly walked one and struck out one over a scoreless inning to log his eighth hold of the season in Friday's 6-2 win over Atlanta.

Kelly hasn't allowed a run over his last seven seven outings, holding opponents to one hit and two walks over 6.1 innings. After a spectacular flame-out on Opening Day, Kelly has been electric out of Boston's bullpen. In 22 appearances since he allowed four runs in a third of an inning March 29, Kelly has allowed one run on 10 hits and six walks while striking out 25 over 23.1 innings.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Gets save against Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly got the save against the Blue Jays on Sunday, allowing no baserunners with no walks or strikeouts in a clean ninth inning to close out Boston's 5-3 victory.

Manager Alex Cora was forced to get creative without the services of Craig Kimbrel and Carson Smith (rest) and starter Drew Pomeranz only lasting four innings, so Kelly ended up getting the save to close out a strong effort from Boston's bullpen -- which shut out Toronto over five innings to preserve the victory. Kelly's having a good season with a 2.33 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP over 19.1 innings but Kimbrel is one of the most dominant closers in baseball, so Kelly is not likely to see many save opportunities aside from the occasional spot appearance.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Returns from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly (suspension) was reinstated to the Red Sox's active roster prior to Wednesday's game, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Kelly was forced to serve a six-game suspension due to his role in a benches-clearing brawl against the Yankees on April 12. The reliever will slide back into his high-leverage role immediately, and has logged a 3.09 ERA and 0.86 WHIP over 11.2 innings in 11 appearances this season.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Shutting down left-handed hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly, who began serving a six-game suspension Thursday, has held left-handed batters to one hit over 20 at-bats.

The right-handed Kelly has become manager Alex Cora's sneaky weapon against lefties, but the manager will not have Kelly back until May 2. Without him, Cora will look to a traditional left-hander, Brian Johnson, in key relief situations instead.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Loses appeal, suspension starts Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly's six-game suspension was upheld and he will begin to serve it Thursday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Kelly received the suspension back on April 12, but he was able to play in the meantime while he appealed the decision. With Major League Baseball refusing to budge from their initial penalty, the right-hander will be sidelined for nearly a week. He's eligible to return Wednesday against the Royals.
