Red Sox | Joe Kelly beats former team in debut

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 22:47:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly made his team debut Wednesday, Aug. 6, in a start against his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals. He is the first pitcher to go seven-plus innings and allow three or fewer hits in his Red Sox debut since former SP Hideo Nomo's no-hitter April 4, 2001. He allowed one run, three hits and four walks over seven innings with two strikeouts in the no-decision and quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly will be a hot property off the waiver wire in AL-only fantasy leagues, if he wasn't already. He has the potential to be a solid fantasy option, and perhaps a change of scenery was all he needed to live up to his potential.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly likely to start next week

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:15:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly is likely to make his debut for the team next week against his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Crazy timing that'll be, huh. Anway, with the move to the American League East, Kelly's value should drop a bit, but it's not like he was on the rosters of many to begin with. We feel that Kelly should only be owned in AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Acquire Allen Craig, Joe Kelly

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:41:57 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired OF Allen Craig and SP Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SP John Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: Well then. Craig has been a former shell of himself this year, but the move to Boston could spark a turnaround in a more hitter-friendly environment. He'll also see more consistent playing time in Beantown. Kelly hasn't excited since his return from the DL, and he won't be any more intriguing with the move to the AL East.

Back in St. Louis, the departure of Craig opens up everyday PT for Oscar Taveras. Everyday at-bats should be good for the youngster, and it could elevate his play to levels that we've expected of him. He should be owned everywhere now.

Cardinals | Rotation set for Dodgers series

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 12:28:56 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SPs Joe Kelly and Carlos Martinez will pitch Saturday, July 19, and Sunday, July 20, respectively, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. As previously reported, Lance Lynn will open the series Friday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly and Martinez are risky road starts against a strong and rested Dodgers lineup. However, both are solid low-end pitching options with upside in all formats for the second half.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly activated

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:39:41 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals activated SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) from the disabled list Friday, July 11, and optioned SP Tyler Lyons to Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Also, SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day DL.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly will make the start tonight against the reeling Milwaukee Brewers. Kelly has a chance to stick in the rotation for a while after the injuries to Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia. He's worth a look in deep mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Carlos Martinez stepping up

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:59:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez recorded a season-high six innings Tuesday, July 8, and the Cards are 5-0 in his five starts this year. Manager Mike Matheny said Martinez's delivery was smooth and that the right-hander's sinker looked on point. He pointed out Martinez looked better because he wasn't trying to reach triple digits on his fastball.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez is finding his groove, but hopefully he'll keep his rotation spot after the trade deadline. Grab him wherever you can. Jake Peavy or whoever else St. Louis may acquire would bump Joe Kelly or Tyler Lyons. Shelby Miller may actually be at risk if they seek outside SP help.

Cardinals | Jaime Garcia will have surgery

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:42:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia (shoulder) will have surgery Friday, July 11, to address a thoracic outlet symptom.

Fantasy Tip: At this stage, Garcia's shoulder issues have become chronic, and this surgery should end his season. Unless things change, Joe Kelly will be the beneficiary within the rotation going forward. However, it is no secret the Cardinals are searching for options through the trade market to replace Garcia, and potentially fill in for the injured Michael Wacha.

Cardinals | Joe Kelly will start Friday

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 14:47:45 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SP Joe Kelly (hamstring) will start Friday, July 11, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SP Tyler Lyons will move to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly made three stingy starts to begin the season, and he is a must own in NL-only leagues. He has mixed league potential, but starting on the road against a potent Brewers lineup is a tough task, especially after a lengthy injury. With this news, Lyons' NL-only value is tied to another injury within the Cardinals' rotation.
