Player Notes
Joe Kelly took a no-decision, allowing five runs (four earned) in 3 1/3 innings as the Red Sox fell to the White Sox on Monday.

Advice: The White Sox jumped on Kelly immediately for four runs in the first inning and tacked on another in the third. The right-hander allowed seven hits and hit a batter while walking none and striking out two. 2015 just hasn't been his year, as he stands with a 5.94 ERA, a 1.51 WHIP, and a 68/32 K/BB ratio over 83 1/3 innings. Kelly will look for something positive to come out of this weekend's home start versus the Rays.

Mon, Jul 27 Rotoworld
Joe Kelly gave up four runs and three homers in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Astros.

Advice: Kelly's struggles are largely a result of him not being a very good pitcher. There are other factors at play, but that's would seem to be the big one. Despite that, Red Sox manager John Farrell gave Kelly a vote of confidence after Wednesday's game, saying he'll stick in the rotation for now. Perhaps a date with the struggling White Sox on Monday will help Kelly get on track.

Wed, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Red Sox recalled RHP Joe Kelly from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Advice: Kelly will start for the Red Sox on Wednesday night against the Astros. It's not clear whether this is a permanent return to the rotation for the 27-year-old right-hander, who did show some positive signs on the farm. He has a rough 5.67 ERA in 14 starts this season for Boston and is a poor fantasy option versus Houston.

Wed, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Joe Kelly will be recalled to start on Wednesday in Houston.

Advice: Everyone else in the rotation will be pushed back. Kelly was booted from the big league rotation last month after posting a 5.67 ERA over 14 starts, but he's rebounded at Triple-A Pawtucket with a 2.84 mark over four outings. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
