Red Sox starter Joe Kelly started spring waxing optimistic, but something bad happened today: he had to leave during the third inning of his spring training start in Fort Myers due to an apparent injury. It’s unclear at the moment what it was, but he immediately left the game after throwing a pitch.
The Red Sox’ projected fifth starter allowed three runs on seven hits before leaving the game. He’s pitched poorly this spring too, allowing nine earned runs on 17 hits over seven and a third innings.
Updates as they happen.
