White Sox place Joe Kelly on Family Medical Leave

by Joe Binder

The White Sox will be without one of their relievers for the next few games.

Prior to Sunday’s series finale vs. Detroit, the team placed right-handed pitcher Joe Kelly on the Family Medical Leave List. Left-handed reliever Tanner Banks was recalled from Class AAA Charlotte as the corresponding move.

Kelly, 34, has gone 1-3 with a 6.42 ERA (24 ER/33.2 IP), 14 holds, and 46 strikeouts over 39 games (one start) in 2022. Though struggling mightily during his first season on the South Side, the reliever has made five-straight scoreless outings, allowing two hits with nine strikeouts over his last 4.2 innings pitched.

Kelly must remain on the Family Medical Leave List for a minimum of three days and no more than seven, per the club.

Banks, 30, is 1-0 with a 3.26 ERA (17 ER/47.0 IP), one hold, and 40 strikeouts in 32 relief appearances with the White Sox this season. He has made nine appearances (two starts) with Charlotte, going 0-1 with a 2.65 ERA (5 ER/17.0 IP) and 24 strikeouts.
