Kelly (knee) gave up a run on one hit while pitching the eighth inning of Tuesday's 9-7 loss to the Royals.
Kelly was back on the mound after he was removed from his previous relief appearance three days earlier against the Diamondbacks due to a bruised right knee.

Kelly left Saturday's appearance with a bruised left knee, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Kelly was forced to exit after getting hit by a comebacker off the bat of Jake McCarthy with no outs in the top of the ninth.

Kelly (illness) is available out of the bullpen Monday against the Astros, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

Kelly exited Thursday's game against the Royals due to lightheadedness.
Kelly will be further evaluated to determine the extent of the issue, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. If he's forced to miss additional time, Jake Diekman and Reynaldo Lopez should be candidates to see increased setup work.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Exits with trainer
Kelly was removed from Thursday's game against the Royals in the bottom of the seventh inning due to an apparent injury, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Kelly dealt with a biceps issue in late July, but it's not yet clear whether his removal from Thursday's matchup was related to that issue. Prior to leaving Thursday's game with a trainer, he allowed a hit and a walk while failing to record a strikeout in one-third of a scoreless inning.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Overcomes biceps injury
Kelly (biceps) picked up a hold and struck out one over a scoreless inning in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Athletics.
Kelly had been removed from his previous appearance last Wednesday against the Rockies after experiencing right biceps discomfort, but he only needed a couple days of rest to avoid a trip to the injured list. The hold was his 11th of the season, tying Jose Ruiz for second on the team behind Kendall Graveman.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Leaves with biceps issue
Kelly was removed from Wednesday's game against the Rockies with right biceps discomfort, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Kelly entered in the eighth inning and allowed a double, hit a batter and recorded two strikeouts before exiting with the injury. According to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, the right-hander said the injury is related to the nerve issue in the same biceps which delayed his start to the season, though he doesn't expect to miss any time after the injury cropped up again Wednesday....

White Sox's Joe Kelly: Surprise save chance
Kelly allowed two earned runs on two hits while striking out one to earn the save against the Blue Jays on Monday.
Kelly surprisingly entered the game in the ninth inning, following Kendall Graveman -- the presumed closer in the absence of Liam Hendriks (forearm). Though Kelly managed to tally his first save of the season and sixth of his career, he made things interesting by allowing a single and a home run with one out. It is worth noting that Graveman was used to face the middle of Toronto's dangerous order, so it would be premature to now say Kelly is definitely the fill-in closer.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Activated Tuesday
Kelly (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Tigers.
He probably wouldn't be the first option, but with Liam Hendriks (forearm strain) out indefinitely, there could be saves available in the Chicago bullpen. Kendall Graveman seems like the most likely option to get the first chance to fill in for Hendriks. Kelly had a rough start to the season but logged four scoreless appearances prior to landing on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Expected to return Tuesday
Kelly (hamstring) is expected to be reinstated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Kelly tossed over 20 pitches during a simulated game Sunday, and he'll be able to rejoin the White Sox's bullpen without making any rehab appearances. Over his seven major-league outings prior to his absence, he posted a 9.53 ERA and 2.47 WHIP in 5.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Kelly (hamstring) threw over 20 pitches in a simulated game Sunday and could be activated from the 15-day injured list during the upcoming week, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

White Sox's Joe Kelly: Bullpen session on tap
Kelly (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
It will be the right-hander's first bullpen session since landing on the injured list two weeks ago with a strained left hamstring. Kelly expects to require two bullpen sessions and potentially one rehab outing before rejoining the active roster.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Leaves with hamstring tightness
Kelly was removed from Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with left hamstring tightness.
Kelly needed only seven pitches to strike out the only two batters he faced during the eighth inning, but he appeared to tweak his hamstring on his last pitch and promptly exited the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear and the veteran right-hander will be evaluated further Thursday morning, so he's likely to be unavailable for the series finale versus Boston....

White Sox's Joe Kelly: Lands on injured list
Kelly was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a strained left hamstring.
Kelly exited Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with the injury and will now be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks.

Tanner Banks was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Implodes in loss
Kelly (0-1) allowed five earned runs on one hit and four walks while striking out one across 0.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Yankees.
Kelly entered the game in the eighth inning with the score tied at 7-7. He retired the first two batters he faced but proceeded to walk the next three hitters, leading to his disastrous outing. Kelly has made two appearances since returning from a biceps injury, and he figures to maintain a high-leverage role in the White Sox bullpen despite this poor outing.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Joe Kelly: Tallies hold in debut
Kelly allowed two hits and struck out one across a scoreless inning to record a hold Monday against the Guardians.
Kelly made his White Sox debut after beginning the season on the injured list due to a biceps strain. He entered the game in the seventh inning with a three-run lead and surrendered two singles but got out of the jam unscathed. Kelly figures to maintain a high-leverage role in the Chicago bullpen, but he is unlikely to draw regular save chances.... See More ... See Less
