Kelly signed a major-league deal with the Orioles on Thursday, Brittany Ghiroli of reports. Per Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Kelly will head to Triple-A to begin his tenure with the team.

Kelly saw some success at the Double-A level in 2017, owning a 2.98 ERA and striking out 9.7 batters per nine innings. The sledding got much tougher with the jump to Triple-A El Paso of the Pacific Coast League, as Kelly had a 6.64 ERA and surrendered six homers and 26 walks across 42 innings (seven starts). He'll be entering his age-25 season with the Orioles, and should be given a chance to make his MLB debut at some point.
