But then again if Kielty continues like this then the pressure to bring him up won't be that great.
The rust showed on Bobby Kielty's first day with Pawtucket. Kielty, who had not played since July 20 and was designated for assignment the next day by Oakland, appeared in both ends of the PawSox' 4-0, 3-2 doubleheader loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts in the first game, 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in the second. Kielty on Monday signed a minor league contract with the Sox, who are considering him as an alternative to Peña as a fourth outfielder.
