Sat, 11 Apr 2015 09:28:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be the starting pitcher Saturday but could be on a pitch count during the game. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see how Kelly does in a start or two before consider him as a starting option.

Red Sox | Steven Wright might start Saturday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 18:23:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright might make the start Saturday, April 11, against the New York Yankees if SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is not ready to come off the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Wright gets the nod FantasyScore owners likely want to avoid him on the road in a difficult environment.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly could start Saturday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:41:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is still a candidate to start Saturday, April 11, but the team would like to see him throw 95 pitches in a rehab game before having him pitch in a game, according to manager John Farrell. Kelly threw 78 pitches over five innings in an extended spring training game Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) probably will need at least one more rehab start, so he is likely a few weeks away from returning. Kelly probably will not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore most nights.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly to pitch in minor-league game

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 07:00:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (biceps) will pitch in a minor-league game this week. This will allow for the Red Sox to start the season with Kelly on the disabled list with a backdated stint.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) boldly proclaimed he could win the American League Cy Young award this season, earlier this offseason. If he's going to do that, it appears as though he'll have to do so with less than a full slate of starts. Kelly piled up a record of 6-4 in 17 starts last season for the Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals, with an xFIP of 4.19. Owners will need to see a lengthy string of quality starts before they give a roster spot to Kelly this season.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly battles biceps soreness

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 12:30:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is working through soreness in his biceps. Manager John Farrell said Kelly is feeling better but may have his next turn in the spring rotation pushed back.

Fantasy Tip: Farrell said he'd hoped to have Kelly throw 175-180 innings in the regular season, and that could still happen if Kelly doesn't have injuries like this act up. Kelly should be considered in later rounds of deeper leagues only.

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.
