null null Baseball null There's relief and then there's relief. Rangers right-hander Shawn Kelley experienced both on Tuesday.Kelley got the save in a 5-3 win over the Mariners, only hours after being activated from the injured list with the news that growths removed from his throat last week were not cancerous. “The doctor told me that the scary part is over. 'Rest assured you are in good health. The bad stuff is ruled out,'” Kelley said (via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram).MORE: Watch 'ChangeUp,' a new live whiparound show on DAZN Kelley pitched the ninth inning, giving up a home run to Omar Narvaez but still earned his third save of the season.“It’s been a whirlwind. Just to get activated … being able to help the team get a win tonight. Just a trifecta I guess, that’s the only way I can describe it. It’s been a whirlwind. But I’m back doing what I love and I feel good and I’m blessed,” Kelley said afterward (via Fox Sports Southwest).After a whirlwind week, @kelleytime27 joined @EmilyJonesMcCoy to talk about getting back to doing what he loved.#TogetherWe— FOX Sports Southwest (@FOXSportsSW) May 22, 2019Kelley went on the IL on May 9 when the masses grew more troublesome and had the surgery Thursday."It was awesome to have Kelley back out there," manager Chris Woodward told reporters after the win. "I love his walk-up song. I haven’t heard that in a while, so it was good to hear that again.”"I like his walk-up song!"Seeing @kelleytime27 wasn't the plan going into the game, but his 9th inning was music to Woody's ears.#TogetherWe— FOX Sports Southwest (@FOXSportsSW) May 22, 2019Kelley had last pitched May 4. He has a 1.29 ERA in 14 innings while being one of the most reliable arms in the Texas bullpen this season.“I really felt everything was going to be OK, and a lot of it was precaution,” Kelley said of the surgery to remove the lumps. “But anytime you start talking about that stuff, it’s obvi

ously scary when you think about it. It’s nice to have the peace of mind knowing you went about it the right way. Everything is good. It’s pretty exciting. I can get back to playing baseball.”Kelley, who still has stitches near his Adam’s apple, is limited with how much he can tilt his head back until the incision heals. His right arm, though? It's fine, like his health.And that's a relief.
