Joe Kelly has officially succeeded in appealing his eight-game suspension.
The ban will now span five contests.Jared Carrabis of Barstool Sports first reported the news on Twitter with Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel of ESPN confirming that report.
Kelly was suspended after a well-publicized bench-clearing incident during a game with the Astros. He was deemed to have thrown in the area of the head of Bregman.
Recently Kelly went on the IL with inflammation in his right shoulder. He’ll still need to serve out his suspension once he’s ready for activation.
