The news on Joe Kelly's bicep tendinitis was generally positive on Tuesday. Kelly left Monday's comeback win over the Mets with the arm problem, but he considered it not serious at the time. He was examined and treated by Red Sox doctors (we use this term advisedly)—and afterward, there was "still a little bit of soreness". According to Manager John Farrell, he could miss his next start. Said Farrell, "He's scheduled to start Sunday. We'll get him off a mound prior to the next time he gets into a game. There's probably going to be a couple of days of just some rest and rehab and maybe some light throwing, so if that extends him out past (Sunday), that's possible. But we'll know more in the coming days." Stay tuned.
