There will be hockey at Yankee Stadium

Just not the Winter Classic, which can’t play Yankee Stadium until they get done scheduling bowl games no one really wants to see there in late December. But there will be two hockey games at Yankee Stadium next year: The Rangers vs. the Devils on January 26, 2014 and the Rangers vs. the Islanders on January 29.

Which will probably be a lot of fun, as I’m told these outdoor hockey games are.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Dodgers are close to signing reliever Joe Kelly. Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the deal is for three years and around $25 million.

Kelly, 30, posted a 4.39 ERA with a 68/32 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings out of the Red Sox bullpen during the regular season in 2018. He turned it up a notch in the postseason, limiting the opposition to two runs (one earned) in 11 1/3 innings with a 13/0 K/BB ratio.

With the Red Sox, Kelly mostly pitched seventh and eighth innings ahead of closer Craig Kimbrel. He will likely do the same ahead of closer Kenley Jansen, sharing the workload with Pedro Báez.
