Top Carson Kelly News

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Moves to injured list

    Kelly was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a strained left oblique. The move is retroactive to May 5.

    Kelly sat out Saturday after being scratched from Friday's lineup with the injury, and he'll now be sidelined for at least the next week. Prospect Alek Thomas was promoted in a corresponding move and should take over the starting job in center field, with Daulton Varsho likely to operate as Arizona's primary catcher. Kelly has a .105/.150/.123 slash line through 60 plate appearances this season, and he could have a reduced role once healthy depending on how Thomas produces during his first run in the majors.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Sitting Friday

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Sits again amid slump

    Kelly is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    For the sixth game in a row, Kelly and Jose Herrera will alternate turns behind the plate. Kelly is still likely viewed as Arizona's No. 1 option, though his .103/.146/.128 slash line to begin the 2022 campaign is beginning to cost him starts.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Records first hit

    Kelly started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double in Sunday's 5-0 loss to the Mets.

    Of the many Arizona hitters scuffling to start the season, perhaps Kelly's struggles are the most profound. The catcher's fourth-inning double was his first hit of the season. He had been given two days off last Thursday and Friday in an effort to clear his mind and jumpstart the bat, but Kelly went 1-for-7 over the weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Moves up against lefty

    Kelly went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres.

    Kelly batted third against left-handed starter Sean Manaea on Friday after slotting into the six hole against a righty the previous night. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo likes to play with the order based on the handedness of the opposing starter, so it would appear the righty-hitting Kelly will slot higher against southpaws. Thus far, it doesn't matter which hand the starter throws with, Arizona's offense has fizzled. Kelly is 0-for-7 through two games, and the lineup has not hit safely against two San Diego starters over 13 innings while going 5-for-55 overall.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Reaches deal with Arizona

    Kelly signed a one-year, $3.325 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    Kelly enjoyed a solid 2021 campaign as Arizona's primary backstop, as he hit .240/.343/.411 with 13 homers and 46 RBI in 98 games. This season is his second year of arbitration eligibility, and the 27-year-old remains under team control through 2024.
