Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Blows up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly (4-2) allowed three runs on four hits while striking out one over one inning to take the loss Friday against Houston.

Boston's bullpen gave us another reminder that baseball's best team has a vulnerability heading into the postseason when they'll face good offenses. Kelly, along with Ryan Brasier and Tyler Thornburg, combined to give up four runs and eight hits in 2.2 innings, wasting a gem from starter David Price. He's had stretches of effective relief -- Kelly entered Friday's game with a 0.93 ERA over his previous 9.2 innings -- but his ERA has been above 3.00 since June 19. Manager Alex Cora needs to find relievers to trust in the seventh and eighth innings.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Gives up more runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly allowed two runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Kelly was cruising through May with a 1.73 ERA, but a recent horrible stretch increased the ERA to 4.31. He's permitted runs in eight of his last 18 outings, posting an ugly 9.22 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over 13.2 innings since June 1. Manager Alex Cora continues to put him in key spots, but one wonders how much longer can he turn to Kelly in tight games.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: PItches Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly, who had left his previous outing after experiencing lightheadedness, threw a scoreless eighth inning in Monday's 5-0 win over Texas. He allowed a hit and struck out two.

Kelly shook off a leadoff single to record his third consecutive scoreless outing. Manager Alex Cora still has confidence in Kelly, who had an 8.31 ERA during the month of June. The right-hander has pitched the eighth inning in eight of his previous nine appearances.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Available out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Kelly (illness) was available out of the bullpen during Sunday's 7-4 win over the Royals.

Kelly experienced some lightheadedness during his appearance Saturday, but felt considerably better after hydrating overnight. He ultimately wasn't used in the series finale, but Cora stressed that Kelly's absence was mostly precautionary with the Red Sox getting extra reinforcement for the bullpen with the additions of callups William Cuevas and Ryan Brasier. Kelly, who maintains a 3.41 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 39 appearances on the season, should reprise his setup role Monday against the Rangers if the contest is competitive.

Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Still being evaluated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly left Saturday's game because he was feeling lightheaded, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports. He's still being evaluated.

The hard-throwing right-hander was not experiencing any chest pains, according to Christopher Smith of MassLive.com, but the Red Sox will continue to monitor Kelly to be sure he's OK. If this issue were to cost Kelly additional time, Matt Barnes would presumably move up and take on primary setup duties in front of closer Craig Kimbrel.
