Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Role to be announced soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Saturday the team has decided on a closer, although he isn't yet willing to make that decision public, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports. Kelley is one of three candidates for the job, along with Koda Glover and Blake Treinen.

While much can be read into the fact that Glover and Treinen have been getting ninth-inning work over the last couple of weeks in spring games while Kelley hasn't, the veteran has been consistently one of the first arms out of the bullpen after the starter during Grapefruit League action and will have a high-leverage role for the Nats this season, whether he's recording saves or holds. Either way, it seems the team's bullpen picture should become a lot clearer very soon.

Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Tosses clean outing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelley gave up two hits and struck out one over 1.2 scoreless innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

The 32-year-old has been getting plenty of work in during minor league games, but Kelley still has a strong 1.93 ERA and 4:1 K:BB through 4.2 official spring innings. The Nats haven't yet tipped their hands when it comes to who will be their Opening Day closer, but the veteran righty remains very much in the mix.

Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Still in running for closer spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelley remains among the favorites to win the Nationals closer job this spring, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

The veteran righty has made two appearances so far in Grapefruit League action, striking out three and walking one in two innings. If Kelley does emerge with the job, he won't have to share it -- manager Dusty Baker made it clear Monday that he won't be using a committee to close games. Kelley's main competition comes from Blake Treinen, although recent signee Joe Blanton and young Koda Glover may also get a look, and a trade to bring in a name-brand closer before Opening Day is also possible. Don't expect much clarity on the Nats closer situation until near the end of spring training, though.

Nationals' Shawn Kelley: Scoreless outing in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelley scattered two hits while striking out a pair of batters during a scoreless inning in his Grapefruit League debut Thursday.

The Nats' addition of Joe Blanton earlier this week gives the team another veteran arm for the late innings, but it remains to be seen if the versatility of Blanton as a higher-volume reliever than Kelley gives manager Dusty Baker enough confidence in the bullpen as a whole to count on Kelley as the team's closer. Along with Blake Treinen, Koda Glover, and Joe Nathan, Kelley is expected to compete for the ninth-inning role this spring.

Nationals' Shawn Kelley: May not be favorite for closer spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelley will compete for the Nationals' closer job in spring training, but manager Dusty Baker expressed concern about his ability to stay healthy all season, The Washington Post reports. "He seems a likely candidate, but we have to see", Baker said. If not, "we'll be looking for somebody else, and be without [Kelley], too. That's the thing you don't want. Then you got to replace two people."

On the surface, Kelley's experience and strikeout stuff would seem to make him the favorite to win the job, but with two Tommy John surgeries on his chart and coming off a season in which he made a career-high 67 appearances, the Nats may not want to put too much pressure on the 32-year-old. Given the uncertainty over his role, at the moment Kelley is a safer pick in fantasy league that use saves plus holds as a category, rather than just saves.
