The Boston Red Sox’s bullpen has been impressive so far in the 2017 season, and one reliever, in particular, has wowed.
Joe Kelly has transitioned seamlessly from the rotation to the bullpen. The hard-throwing right-hander has been more deceptive with his delivery and has increased his velocity.
Kelly has thrown the fastest pitch in 2017 so far, clocking in at 102.2 mph, twice. But there is more to pitching than just velocity and manager John Farrell knows that.
For more on Kelly and to hear from Farrell, check out the video above from “Red Sox First Pitch,” presented by Men’s Wearhouse.
