Kelley will share closer duties with Koda Glover for the time being, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Blake Treinen was formally removed from the closer role Wednesday after nearly squandering a three-run lead Tuesday night.

Manager Dusty Baker said Kelley's elbow history and Glover's inexperience were the primary factors in the decision not to name one closer.
