Joe Kelly Leading Run Of Terrific Starts By Red Sox Pitchers (Video)

The Joe Kelly of August is the pitcher the Boston Red Sox were trading for when they acquired him last summer from the St. Louis Cardinals. After a stint in Triple-A Pawtucket, Kelly was recalled to make two starts in July. He posted an 0-2 record with an 8.31 ERA in 8 2/3 innings pitched. In August, he’s been an entirely different man. Kelly has gone 5-0 with a 3.03 ERA this month...

Pablo Sandoval and the World’s Unluckiest Tarp

Lots of great things came out of last night’s 5-4 Red Sox win over the White Sox. Joe Kelly turned in his fifth straight quality start and Rusney Castillo went an impressive 3-for-4, knocking in all 5 of the Red Sox’ runs. But for me, the game’s most memorable image came when Pablo Sandoval dropped a twenty-megaton belly flop on a tarp along the third base side while snaring...

Joe Kelly Turning Corner For Red Sox After Rough Start to 2015 Season (Video)

Joe Kelly’s first 16 starts of the season were not pretty. He posted a 2-6 record, had a 5.94 ERA and was sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket. But Kelly appears to have turned a corner recently. He is 4-0 in his last four starts with a 3.22 ERA. “Things are certainly headed in the right direction for Joe Kelly,” NESN’s Jerry Remy said on “Red Sox Gameday Live” before Boston...

Is Joe Kelly turning his season around?

Jorge CamargoContributing WriterWinslow Townson/APRecently, Boston has been playing like a good baseball team. The remaining games are kind of pointless because the Red Sox are obviously out of contention (despite Lovullo's recent comments) but it's still nice to see some rookies like Travis Shaw and Blake Swihart swinging the bat well and pitchers like Joe Kelly turning their...

Boston Red Sox’ Joe Kelly Should Abandon His Sinker

Regardless of the fact that we’re more than halfway through August in this disastrous season for the Boston Red Sox, I keep searching for positive signs for the future. Last Friday’s start for Joe Kelly was one of those hints of hope. In fact, all three of his August starts before tonight’s have been productive. He’s gone 3-0 with a 4.41 ERA (by far his best month this season...

Is Joe Kelly the Sox closer? Not Right Now

A Nick Cafardo column last Wednesday was headlined “(Kelly) is the obvious choice to replace Uehara ( as Red Sox closer”) Friday night the team banded together for a 15-1 blowout of Seattle. They had just received the terrible news about John Farrell’s lymphoma. And Kelly proved them wrong. Kelly pitched six innings, allowing 4 hits and a run, walking 2 and fanning...

Machi, Not Kelly Or Tazawa, To Be New Red Sox Closer

Machi (Getty Images)Newly-acquired Jean Machi—who has a grand total of three career saves—has been named Boston's new closer by manager John Farrell. So far for the Red Sox, Machi has an underwhelming 7.36 ERA in 3.2 innings of work. Sounds like a closer to us! Junichi Tazawa, who (until very recently) has been effective as an 8th-inning "set-up" guy will stay in that role. In...

Red Sox’s Joe Kelly Needs To Challenge Hitters, Pitch More Inside (Video)

Joe Kelly’s task Saturday afternoon is to keep the Boston Red Sox’s positive momentum alive following two straight victories. But if he is to do that, he needs to pitch better than his last two outings. Kelly is coming off a no decision against the Chicago White Sox in which he lasted 3 1/3 innings. He is now 2-6 on the season with a 5.94 ERA. “I’d get him to challenge more...

The Red Sox Just Keep on Losing

The Red Sox faced off against the Astros and once again came up short.  The Sox had Joe Kelly on the mound who had just made his return after being sent down to the minors to work on whatever it is that has been causing him trouble this season.  Kelly didn’t pitch poorly, but he wasn’t able to keep the Astros bats from sending the ball out of the ballpark.  The Sox looked...
