Joe Kelly Suffers Minor Back Injury Cooking Cajun Food

The Dodgers scratched right-handed relief pitcher Joe Kelly from Wednesday's scheduled appearance in Los Angeles's loss to the Indians due to back tightness, an issue which Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters was the result of Kelly "standing too long" while cooking cajun food.

“He was cooking some Cajun food, and I guess he was standing a little bit longer than he wanted to."

However, Kelly threw a bullpen at Camelback Ranch on Friday and it is not expected to be a big issue going forward.
