Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski said that Joe Kelly could serve as a multi-inning swing man in 2017.
Dombrowski let on that the Red Sox are not currently looking to add a free agent swing reliever who could chew up chunks out of the pen. It makes sense that the team might want to simply use Kelly in that role. While he posted rocky results in six starts last season (8.46 ERA, 2.23 WHIP, 27/19 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings), he found considerably more success out of the pen. In 17 2/3 relief frames, the 28-year-old right-hander posted a 1.02 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 21/5 K/BB ratio. Nov 9 - 4:30 PM
