News: The Boston Red Sox have traded right-hander John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals for Kelly and outfielder Allen Craig before Thursday's deadline, a person with knowledge of the deal said. Impact: Kelly is 2-2 with a 4.37 ERA in seven starts. He has made four starts since being activated from the disabled list on July 11.(STATS, 1:39pm)

News: The Cardinals agreed to trade Kelly to the Red Sox on Thursday along with Allen Craig in exchange for John Lackey, Peter Gammons of MLB Network reports. Impact: A hamstring injury cost Kelly close to two months, and he's struggled mightily since his return, with a 7.32 ERA in four July starts. The Cardinals were able to land an upgrade in Lackey, but Kelly will likely stay in a starting role with Boston, and perhaps the change of scenery will help the 26-year-old return to form.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly fell to 2-2 Wednesday after he allowed four runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out five over five innings against the Padres. Impact: He allowed single runs in both the first and third innings, and then got touched up for two more in the fourth, with Jedd Gyorko taking him yard for a solo shot. Kelly has not looked good since returning from a hamstring strain on July 11, allowing 16 runs in 19.2 innings over four starts. He'll look for a better result when he takes on the Red Sox next week.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelly bounced back with seven strong innings Saturday. Impact: Kelly gave up four hits over seven innings, retiring his last 13 batters as the Cardinals won for the eighth time in 10 games. He didn't get a decision on July 11 in his return from a strained left hamstring, when he gave up six runs over three innings during the Cardinals' 7-6 win at Milwaukee. After winning for the first time since April 5, he wouldn't detail his changes. "I did a lot of stuff different, but I'm not going to give it away," he said.(STATS, 2:45pm)

News: Kelly picked up his second win of the season Saturday, as he held the Dodgers to one run on four hits and a walk over seven innings. Impact: Kelly, who struck out four batters, threw 62 of his 99 pitches (62.6 percent) for strikes. He's done well to surrender just seven walks in 25.1 innings this season, but as we saw in his last outing, the right-hander is perfectly hittable. Luckily for owners, Kelly's next outing lines up for Friday in Chicago, against the light-hitting Cubbies. It should be a manageable matchup for the pitch-to-contact righty.(RotoWire, )
