"If he passes the test Monday, he'll go out on a rehab assignment," Padres manager Bud Black told MLB.com Friday.

Kelly will likely make his move to Double-A San Antonio late next week, if he avoids any setbacks. He is more than a year removed from surgery.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Casey Kelly's setback likely a minor one


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Padres pitcher Casey Kelly was supposed to throw his first live batting practice session Saturday, but some soreness in his elbow caused the team to scratch him.

Fortunately, it appears as if Kelly has avoided a serious issue, as the soreness and swelling are not located near his surgically repaired UCL. He told MLB.com he hopes it is just minor inflammation at this point, the first time he has suffered any sort of setback in his return.

The Padres had Kelly on track to pitch in a minor-league rehab assignment by the end of the month, and it is not yet clear how this setback will impact his timeline.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Kelly, who had the surgery last April, threw 35 pitches at 50 percent and another 30 pitches at 70 percent.

"Each kind of milestone we hit is something to feel good about," Kelly said. "We're just starting getting built up to get into games. This is the next step in our program."

Kelly said he hopes to be pitching in regular season games -- minors or majors -- by April or May.

"That [three or four weeks behind the other pitchers] is a pretty good assessment of where I'm at," he said. "That's what I'm setting my goal at. And if we have to take a day off, we can."

Kelly to 'grow' from experience


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2013) MLB.com reports after getting a brief taste of the majors in 2012, Padres pitching Casey Kelly has been preparing to compete for a spot in the rotation this spring. "Me and my dad have been going over some film from the starts that I had last year in the big leagues," Kelly said, "trying to get a little step on it to start the season and go into spring training and have a good spring training and see what happens." Kelly, who went 2-3 with a 6.21 ERA in six starts for San Diego last season, said he gained valuable experience in his brief time in the majors. "People can tell you, 'This happens. You have to do this, this and this,'" Kelly said. "But until you experience it, you really don't know. So just having the little experience I've had has helped me this offseason and it's just going to grow and grow with the more time I have up there."
