    • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Hits late homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kelly went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Giants. Kelly's homer in the ninth inning briefly gave the Diamondbacks hope for a comeback, but it was the last run of the game. The 24-year-old catcher is hitting .250 with four homers, 12 RBI and eight runs scored in 76 at-bats over 27 games. He is expected to continue splitting time with Alex Avila behind the dish.

    • Kelly entered Wednesday's game as a pinch hitter and stayed in the game to play third base, Katherine Fitzgerald of the Arizona Republic reports. There was no injury to starter Eduardo Escobar, so having Kelly, a catcher by trade, play third base was by design. Manager Torey Lovullo wanted to get a look at the alignment in case a need arose later this season. "I just removed him from the game to get a different look at something that could potentially pop during the season when you get stretched out and put in a situation where you've flexed all your players into a game and you tie the game late or something happens injury-wise," the manager said.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Kelly went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Pirates.

Kelly has hit safely in five straight starts, going 8-for-16 with three homers and four RBI. For the season, he's hitting .250/.316/.486 over 79 plate appearances.

    • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Retreats to bench
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kelly is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays. Kelly will take a seat in the series finale following a productive showing at the dish in Tuesday's 6-3 loss. The young backstop reached base three times in the contest while notching a pair of extra-base hits, including his second home run in as many starts. John Ryan Murphy will settle in behind the dish Wednesday.
