Kela is dealing with right shoulder discomfort, which is what landed him on the injured list back on May 8th. He made one rehab appearance with Indianapolis back on May 25th and gave up three runs in his only inning of work. Kela returned to Pittsburgh after that game to be reevaluated and now they have decided to shut him down from any action. While with the Pirates this season, he had a 4.63 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 11.2 innings over 14 appearances. He had 11 strikeouts and a .239 BAA.
