Joe Kelly to need additional rehab starts

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly will need two more minor league rehab starts according to general manager John Mozeliak.

Kelly made his latest rehab start at Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday throwing 49 pitches over four scoreless innings of work.

Out since April with a left hamstring strain, Kelly will become an option for the Cardinals in the second half. For now Marco Gonzales will remain in the Cardinals rotation.

Prior to the injury, Kelly made three starts posting a 0.59 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.
