Kelley plays catch, hopes to return next week

NEW YORK -- Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley was not available to pitch in Thursday's 9-8 loss to the Red Sox because he's dealing with inflammation in his triceps.

Girardi said Kelley told the Yankees he was feeling something in his arm after his last outing on Sunday, and the MRI showed he had inflammation.

Kelley was shut down for four days after that game, but he played catch on Friday. Girardi said the plan is for him to throw a bullpen session soon, and "if that goes good, he'll be available shortly after that," likely sometime next week.

Kelley gave up two runs on two hits without recording an out on Sunday against the Orioles. For the season, the right-hander is 4-2 with a 3.96 ERA and 66 strikeouts over 50 innings.
