    The version of Kelly that batted .129 through the first three months of the season has been replaced by a more competent hitter. The catcher extended his hit streak to 12 games with a second-inning home run, his fifth of the season -- all of which have been hit in his last 17 contests. Kelly's slashing .415/.455/.732 with seven extra-base hits, seven RBI and nine runs scored during the streak.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Knocks fourth homer

    Kelly went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a double in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

    Kelly gave the Diamondbacks a 3-0 lead with his fifth-inning blast off Padres starter Sean Manaea. After a lack of power early in the year, Kelly has hit all four of his homers in his last 14 contests. He's hit safely in 12 of those games, going 15-for-45 (.333) in that span. The catcher is up to a .189/.232/.326 slash line with 14 RBI, 14 runs scored and six doubles in 142 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Bat coming alive

    Kelly went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over Colorado.

    Perhaps as a reward for a four-game hit streak, Kelly was moved to the top of the order Saturday and extended the streak to five with a leadoff double. He came around to score the first of three runs Arizona plated during the opening frame. The catcher has hit safely in eight of the last nine contests, going 10-for-30 (.333) with three doubles, three home runs, eight RBI and eight runs scored during that stretch. This must be a great relief for Kelly, who suffered through a prolonged slump to start the season and was batting .098 as recently as June 12. It's unclear if he'll be taking over the leadoff spot permanently against left-handers, which lately has been filled by Jordan Luplow.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Plates all three Arizona runs

    Kelly went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

    Kelly twice tied the score in the game, first with a two-run blast in the second inning and later with a run-scoring single in the fourth. This was just his third multi-hit contest over 37 games this season, and the three RBI were the most he has tallied in a single contest on the campaign. Kelly has had a miserable offensive season with a .155/.202/.273 slash line, but he's started to play better of late with at least one hit in six of his past seven games.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Pops second homer

    Kelly went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-3 win over the Rockies.

    Kelly's two homers this year have come in his last three games. He's shown modest improvement lately, going 7-for-36 (.194) in his last 10 contests compared to a season batting average of .134 in 32 games. The catcher has added nine RBI, nine runs scored and three doubles, and it appears he'll continue to share time with Jose Herrera behind the dish. The two backstops have split time fairly evenly of late with neither of them hitting consistently enough to command a larger role.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Knocks first homer

    Kelly went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-7 win over the Tigers.

    Kelly got the Diamondbacks on the board with his third-inning homer, which was his first in 30 contests this season. He added a game-tying sacrifice fly in the fifth. On top of his first long ball, this was the first time all year the catcher had multiple RBI or runs scored in a game. He's still hitting a paltry .122/.173/.178 with six RBI, seven runs scored and two doubles through 98 plate appearances. Kelly should continue to see about half of the playing time behind the dish in a timeshare with Jose Herrera while Daulton Varsho continues to play in the outfield regularly.
