Velasquez exited his start against the Mets on Thursday after just one inning with numbness in his right middle finger. The right-hander threw 32 pitches and was tagged for three runs in his only inning of work. 

This will be Velasquez's second stint on the DL this season. He suffered a right elbow flexor strain on May 30 and didn't return to the mound for the Phillies until July 18.

On the season, Velasquez is 2-7 with a 5.13 ERA across 15 starts. 

Kelly, who was optioned to Triple A earlier this month, has appeared in 48 games for the Phillies this season. In 84 plate appearances, Kelly is slashing .186/.259/.314. with 10 RBIs.
