      Braves' Casey Kelly: Dealt to Braves

      Kelly has been traded to the Braves along with catcher Ricardo Rodriguez in exchange for Christian Bethancourt. Kelly spent the majority of the 2015 campaign at Double-A San Antonio, where he worked a 4.94 ERA with 60 strikeouts and 34 walks across 82 innings of work. He joined the big league club in September, but did not fair well in his two starts as he was roughed up for 10 earned runs across 11.1 innings. With Atlanta, he could have a chance to land a spot in the back end of the rotation given the current state of the Braves' starting staff beyond Julio Teheran.

      Pitcher Casey Kelly could make some starts for Padres in 2015

      Pitcher Casey Kelly will make a couple starts for the Padres before the end of the season, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports. Kelly will likely join the rotation sometime next week, with Lin predicting that the righty's first start will be Sept. 26 against the Diamondbacks. While Kelly's minor league numbers may not inspire much confidence, he has the athleticism and stuff to pitch like a No. 4 starter in time, and given his home ballpark, his overall production could resemble that of a No. 3 starter. If he returns next Saturday he will get a home start against the Diamondbacks and a road start against the Dodgers, who could be resting players at that point, so there could be some sneaky value here.

      Padres P Casey Kelly solid in first appearance in 10 months

      Padres pitcher Casey Kelly pitched one inning during Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, per UT San Diego. This was Kelly's first appearance in 10 months and he threw only seven pitches, retiring the side in the eighth inning. "It happened so quick, and I'm in the dugout like, 'Man, I want to go back out for another inning,'" Kelly said after throwing a perfect frame in the Padres' 7-5 loss at Peoria Stadium. "But it was a good start, and I'll just build off of that." Kelly has struggled with injuries since having Tommy John surgery in May of 2013. He has also dealt with forearm and groin strains. Saturday was the fifth game he has appeared in since having his elbow reconstructed in 2013. "Once I started running in, that adrenaline rush -- haven't felt that in a while," Kelly said. "It was good to get that back. ... Everything felt good today, and that was the biggest thing, coming out healthy."
