News: Kelley picked up the save Sunday night against the Red Sox, throwing a perfect inning with two strikeouts. Impact: After getting the loss earlier in the week against the Orioles, Kelley rallied to pick up two saves over the weekend. It'll be a short tenure most likely for Kelley, but at least he has some short-term stability in the role.(RotoWire, )

News: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Kelley, who pitched three of the last four days, is likely unavailable for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Newday's Erik Boland reports. Impact: Girardi added that he probably won't use Adam Warren, who also pitched three of the last four days. That leaves Matt Thornton and Dellin Betances as the leading candidates to pitch the ninth inning, should a save situation arise at the end of Thursday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelley took the loss on Wednesday, surrendering four hits and two earned runs with one strikeout over one inning. Impact: In his next appearance after earning his first career save, Kelley was roughed up a bit, allowing four consecutive hits to start the top of the ninth inning. He was eventually able to work his way out of it, but the damage was already done. Kelley threw 30 pitches on Wednesday and has pitched on three of four days, so he'll be a likely candidate for rest Thursday against the Red Sox.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Joe Girardi said Kelley is "probably" unavailable to close Tuesday, Newday's David Lennon reports. Impact: Kelley pitched well in earning his first big league save Monday, but he has thrown two straight days, and four of the last six, and Girardi wants to keep him fresh since he will likely be the primary closer with David Robertson sidelined. If Kelley is not used in a save situation Tuesday, Matt Thornton seems the most likely to get the ball instead.(RotoWire, )

News: Kelley recorded his first major league save Monday, retiring all three batters he faced, and will now be the Yankees' leading option as closer with David Robertson (groin) headed to the disabled list, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Impact: Kelley does not have any major league experience in the closer role, and had pitched the eighth inning in both of the Yankees' saves before today. It is uncertain exactly how much time Robertson will miss, but for at least the next two weeks it looks like Kelley will be the closer.(RotoWire, )

News: With David Robertson going on the disabled list with a groin injury, Shawn Kelley earned the save Monday with a perfect ninth inning. Impact: Kelley made quick work of the O's, needing just nine pitches to finish off the game. The righty has a 3.72 career ERA, but has not allowed a run in his first 3.1 innings this season. He should be the favorite for saves in New York moving forward while Robertson is unavailable.(RotoWire, )
