Keone Kela (forearm) unlikely to return this season

Keone Kela (forearm) continues to work towards his return, though the Pirates aren't sure he'll have time to do so before the end of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Kela continues to recover from a forearm tightness and could miss the rest of the season. "At this point the calendar is starting to work against us a little bit," said Pirates' GM Ben Cherington.

Keone Kela (forearm) throws off mound on Wednesday

Keone Kela (forearm) threw off a mound for the first time since being placed on the IL. He is getting closer to a return. The Pirates will continue to update his status as he progresses through his rehab.

Fantasy Impact

Kela has pitched only two innings this season but he will be in the mix for saves upon his return. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues who need saves should monitor both Kela and Richard Rodriguez, who is closing in Kela's absence, in order to get an understanding of who would close when Kela is healthy. Kela can be stashed on the IL or left on the Waiver Wire for now.
