After leaving Saturday night's 15-4 win over the Kansas City Royals in the eighth inning with lightheadedness, Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly is available to pitch Sunday according to manager Alex Cora.


"I haven't seen (Kelly) today yet, but from what Brad (Pearson) told me, it was a ot of hydration last night. He's available but we'll probably stay away from hi. It just makes sense and we're covered now that we got some arms here, so we should be fine."

The Red Sox made a number of roster moves today, bringing up two pitchers to the major league roster. 

First pitch for the Red Sox and Royals is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. EST on Sunday in Kansas City. Boston is going for their 62nd win on the year and hopes to extend their two-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East standings.
