Rangers' Keone Kela: Collects second save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela recorded his second save of the season despite allowing a solo home run in the ninth inning of Thursday's win over Seattle.

Despite the righty looking a little rusty since returning from the disabled list, it didn't take manager Jeff Bannister long to turn to Kela in a high-leverage situation. Texas closer Alex Claudio had pitched three innings over the past two games, so Bannister's hand was forced, and Kela probably won't receive another opportunity to close out a game unless a similar situation presents itself. With three runs through 2.1 innings over three appearances since his DL stint, Kela is probably best viewed as speculative flier for owners chasing saves over the final weeks.

Rangers' Keone Kela: Roughed up in first appearance since DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela surrendered two runs on two hits and a walk while retiring only one of the four batters he faced in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Mariners.

Making his first appearance since Aug. 3 after a month-plus stint on the disabled list with right shoulder soreness, Kela looked quite rusty in his return to the mound. Manager Jeff Banister called upon Kela with no outs and two on in the top of the sixth inning, and after inducing a flyout from Robinson Cano, the reliever allowed back-to-back run-scoring singles and a walk before exiting. It's expected that Banister will gradually ease Kela back into higher-leverage work, but probably not until the right-hander shows more dependability in the middle innings.

Rangers' Keone Kela: Returns from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Kela came through Monday's bullpen with no issues, so he'll rejoin the Rangers' bullpen after missing a little more than a month with a shoulder injury. Now that he's back, look for him to return to his role as one of the primary setup men for closer Alex Claudio. The 24-year-old owns a solid 2.36 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 46:16 K:BB through 34.1 innings this season.

Rangers' Keone Kela: To toss bullpen session Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

It was originally looking like Kela may make his return from the disabled list Sunday, but the Rangers would like to get one more successful bullpen session out of him before placing him back on the active roster. Assuming all goes well during his last bullpen session, Kela could be activated from the DL as soon as Tuesday.

Rangers' Keone Kela: Nearing return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) could return from the DL as soon as Sunday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Kela and Matt Bush (knee) are slated to throw their third bullpen sessions Wednesday, and if they look good enough, both could return for the series finale against New York. The 24-year-old Kela was sent to the minors to begin the year with the Rangers looking to preserve team chemistry, but he joined the club a couple weeks in to the season and pitched very well around a couple DL stints. He makes for a decent pickup for those in dynasty leagues speculating on saves for 2018.
