Giants coach Kelly sidelined by concussion
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants will be without first-base coach Roberto Kelly for at least the first two games of the National League Championship Series as he recovers from a concussion sustained during Saturday's workout.

Manager Bruce Bochy said before Sunday's NLCS opener that assistant hitting coach Joe Lefebvre will take Kelly's spot on the field.

Kelly was struck by a line drive from Buster Posey, who was taking batting practice, as Kelly stood around second base while batting ground balls to outfielders. Kelly was released from the hospital Saturday night, though Bochy said Kelly wasn't able to get much sleep. The Giants had initially said Kelly would be on the field as long as he was medically cleared.
