Pirates' Keone Kela: Activated, handed suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and then given a two-game suspension due to a violation of his contract Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kela was finally activated from the injured list after recovering from a shoulder injury, though he'll have to wait at least two more games to return to action after being dealt a suspension. He'll be eligible to return beginning Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Not returning Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) will not be activated Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Reports over the weekend suggested that the Pirates were targeting Monday for Kela's return. Reports on his health are "very positive" according to general manager Neal Huntington, but he's apparently still not quite yet ready to go.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Trending toward Monday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Clint Hurdle suggested the Pirates are eyeing Monday for Kela's (shoulder) return from the 60-day injured list, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kela made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday and threw a bullpen session Friday, so the Pirates seemingly just want to give him a couple of days of rest before reinserting him into the bullpen. Assuming he does in fact get activated Monday, he should step in immediately as one of the top setup options in front of closer Felipe Vazquez.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Could be activated this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) could be activated from the 60-day injured list as soon as Saturday or Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Manager Clint Hurdle noted Friday that Kela was "closing in on a return to the active roster," and the fact that the right-hander rejoined the team in Pittsburgh this weekend supported the skipper's claim. After striking out the side in 11 pitches during his final rehab appearance with Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Kela was spotted warming up in the bullpen during the Pirates' game Friday against the Phillies, even though he wasn't yet activated. The fact that he pitched on back-to-back days is nonetheless a sign that Kela has reached the final phase of his recovery from right shoulder inflammation, which has kept him on the shelf since May 6. Whenever he's formally reinstated, Kela should quickly reclaim a setup role ahead of All-Star closer Felipe Vazquez.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Another rehab outing tabbed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) will make a rehab appearance for Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kela has made a pair of rehab appearances for Indianapolis over the past week, allowing two runs and striking out three across 1.1 innings. The right-hander has been sidelined since early May with shoulder inflammation and will likely need multiple more minor-league appearances before being cleared to return.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) is starting a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kela has been sidelined with right shoulder inflammation since early May and is already eligible to be activated off the 60-day injured list. The 26-year-old will likely require multiple appearances in the minors due to the extended absence.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Tosses simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) threw a simulated game Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kela has been out since early May with shoulder inflammation. He'll be eligible to return from the 60-day injured list immediately following the All-Star break, though it's not yet clear when he's expected back.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kela has been out since early May. General manager Neal Huntington said Monday that Kela wasn't close to returning, though he's already scheduled for a simulated game Saturday.

Pirates' Keone Kela: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although Kela (shoulder) threw on flat ground Sunday, he's not close to returning, general manager Neal Huntington told 93.7 The Fan radio in Pittsburgh.

Kela, who has been on the injured list since May 8, isn't expected back until after the All-Star break. "He's coming along well," Huntington noted. "He'll have to throw some bullpens, then live BP, rehab outings. We're still aways away but he's making quality progress." Kela has pitched only 11.2 innings this season, allowing six earned runs and three homers in 14 games. He could pick up some saves later in the season if the team trades Felipe Vazquez, but Kyle Crick has likely moved ahead of him in the pecking order.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Extends throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) threw out to 105 feet Wednesday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Kela continues to ramp up his throwing program as he works his way back from a right shoulder injury. He should continue to gradually extend his throwing distance before ultimately resuming mound work, at which point a clearer timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus.

June 20, 2019 07:52 PM
Pirates' Keone Kela: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) restarted a throwing program at the Pirates' spring training facility in Florida earlier this week, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

This is an encouraging step for Kela, who has been shut down from throwing since suffering a setback in his recovery near the end of May. He's been able to play catch from 90 feet for the past two days and should gradually extend his distance before resuming mound work within the next couple of weeks. Kela isn't eligible to return from the 60-day injured list until early July.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

With this move, Kela is ineligible for a return until early July. There's a very real chance he's out through the All-Star break; Kela had a setback with the shoulder in late May and is just now starting back up with a throwing program.

June 12, 2019 05:44 PM
Pirates' Keone Kela: Nearing return to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) will begin a throwing program Thursday or Friday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Kela has been shut down from throwing since suffering a setback in his recovery near the end of May, so this is an encouraging sign for the right-hander. That said, the Pirates likely won't establish a timetable for his return until he's able to resume facing live hitters.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela was returned from his rehab assignment Friday due to reoccurring right shoulder discomfort, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kela had been pitching for Triple-A Indianapolis while on the mend, but he's since returned to Pittsburgh and will cease throwing for 10 days before likely being re-evaluated. The right-hander has been on the 10-day injured list since May 8 with right shoulder inflammation.

Pirates' Keone Kela: To toss one inning at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) will pitch one inning at Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kela threw 21 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday, and he's now on track to pitch in a minor-league contest as part of his rehab stint. It's unclear how many appearances he'll make in the minors prior to his activation from the 10-day injured list.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Completes sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) threw a 21-pitch simulated game Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Manager Clint Hurdle said Kela looked good during the workout while utilizing all of his pitches. The Pirates were set to re-evaluate Kela on Thursday before determining whether he's fit to return from the 10-day injured list at some point this weekend or if a minor-league rehab assignment will be necessary beforehand. Kela has been sidelined since May 4 with right shoulder inflammation.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Will throw off mound this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) should be ready for a simulation game by Wednesday, general manager Neal Huntington told 93.7 The Fan on Sunday.

How Kela looks in the simulation game will help to determine his next step. He's pitched just once in May and has struggled in the first quarter of the season. The righty has registered a 4.63 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 11.2 innings. He's surrendered three homers, matching his 38-game total for Texas last year.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Nearing mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) is throwing off flat ground, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kela has been on the IL since May 8 with a shoulder injury. If he experiences no setbacks in the coming days, the right-hander could be cleared to resume mound work, at which point a clearer timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus.

Pirates' Keone Kela: Requires IL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kela suffered a shoulder injury over the weekend, and after further evaluation it was determined that the issue would require a stay on the shelf. The severity of the issue is not yet known, so it remains to be seen whether Kela will be ready to return when first eligible (May 16). A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Friday's series opener against the Cardinals. Kyle Crick and Richard Rodriguez should handle the bulk of setup duties in his absence.
