The newest Boston Red Sox pitcher has finally arrived.
Joe Kelly, who came over from the St. Louis Cardinals with outfielder Allen Craig in the John Lackey trade, officially was added to Boston’s 25-man roster on Saturday. Just last October, Kelly pitched against Boston in the Fall Classic.
“A few months back I was pitching Game 3 of the World Series against the Red Sox,” Kelly said. “Now I’m on this team — it shows you how crazy the game is. It’s definitely something I’m really pumped for, and I’m excited to pitch here. I’ve never pitched at Fenway.”
