  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Continues solid stretch

    Kelly registered a no-decision during Saturday's 3-2 loss to Colorado, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts in seven-plus innings. Kelly fired six scoreless frames before surrendering a run on two hits in the seventh. He also allowed a solo home run and a single in the eighth before being pulled. The 33-year-old fired an impressive 70 of 93 pitches for strikes with 11 whiffs and has now permitted two runs or fewer in seven straight starts while completing at least six innings in each outing. Kelly's 2.86 ERA ranks 13th in MLB while his 1.13 WHIP is 25th, and he lines up for an enticing outing against Pittsburgh next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Seven scoreless in no-decision

    Kelly struck out eight in seven shutout innings while allowing three hits and two walks in a 1-0 loss Sunday in Atlanta. He did not factor into the decision. Kelly efficiently mowed through the Atlanta lineup, needing just 91 pitches to complete seven frames. Only once did Atlanta threaten to score, when they had two on and one out in the second, but Kelly quickly got out of it with a groundball double play. The 33-year-old was masterful in July, going 4-0 with a 1.31 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 33:8 K:BB in 41.1 innings across six starts. He allowed two runs or fewer and tossed at least six innings in each July outing. His next start will likely be next weekend against Colorado.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Eight-inning gem in win

    Kelly (10-5) earned the win Monday over the Giants. He allowed only three hits while striking out seven over eight scoreless innings. Kelly kept runs off the board for the first time since June 8 and the fifth time in his 20 starts. This was arguably his best outing of the season, as he racked up 10 whiffs and threw 61 of 99 pitches for strikes. The right-hander has won three straight starts and has turned in quality starts in all five of his appearances in July. He owns a 3.04 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 96:36 K:BB across 118.1 innings this year. He's lined up for a road start in Atlanta this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Fires another quality start

    Kelly (9-5) earned the wind during Sunday's 3-1 victory over San Diego, allowing one run on six hits with five strikeouts in six plus innings. Kelly shut down San Diego's offense through six frames, surrendering his lone run on a Luke Voit solo shot to lead off the seventh that prompted his removal. The 33-year-old has now submitted four straight quality starts, during which he's pitched to a 2.05 ERA across 26.1 innings. Kelly concludes the first half with a 3.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 89 strikeouts in 110.1 innings across 19 starts.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Goes seven innings in win

    Kelly (8-5) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts in seven-plus innings to earn the win Monday over the Giants. Kelly limited his opponent to exactly two runs for the third straight start. He gave up a run on a fielder's choice in the fourth inning and walked LaMonte Wade in the eighth before he exited. Joe Mantiply struggled in relief, allowing the inherited runner to score to tack another run on Kelly's line. This was Kelly's ninth quality start in 18 outings this year. He's maintained a solid 3.36 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 84:36 K:BB through 104.1 innings overall. The right-hander is projected for one more start in the first half, which is expected to be a road game versus the Padres this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Sleeper pitchers for Week 15 (July 11-17)

    Kelly is sort of the ultimate streamer pitcher, generally good for a quality outing but rarely dominant. His matchups this week are shaky (Giants and Padres), but hey, there's two of them.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Settles for no-decision

    Kelly pitched 6.1 innings against San Francisco on Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out six batters. He did not factor in the decision. Kelly held Arizona scoreless for four frames before giving up a pair of fifth-inning runs. He was able to pitch into the seventh inning and left the contest in line for the win, but the Giants stormed back after his departure to take the victory. Kelly racked up 15 swinging strikes in another effective performance that accounted for his third quality start over his past four outings. He leads the Diamondbacks with seven wins while posting a 3.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 80:34 K:BB over 97.1 innings on the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Collects seventh win

    Kelly (7-5) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in seven innings Friday, earning the win over the Rockies. Kelly has alternated good and bad starts over his last five games, with Friday being one of the better performances. He gave up a run on a double play in the fifth inning and a Ryan McMahon solo home run in the seventh, which was just the sixth homer Kelly's given up all year. The right-hander has a 3.46 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 74:31 K:BB in 91 innings across 16 starts. He's projected for a home start against the Giants next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Goes seven strong in win

    Kelly (6-4) earned the win Sunday over the Twins. He allowed one run on five hits and no walks with five strikeouts in seven innings. Kelly got into trouble in the first inning, giving up a run when Carlos Correa grounded into a double play. That ended up being the only damage on Kelly's line, as he settled in after that and completed seven innings for the third time in 14 starts. The strong outing trimmed his ERA to 3.46 with a 1.29 WHIP and 66:29 K:BB across 78 innings overall. The right-hander is projected for a favorable home start versus the Tigers next weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Sleeper pitchers for Week 12 (June 20-26)

    If you picked up Kelly for his two starts this past week, you might want to hold on just a little bit longer. He'll be facing far and away the worst offense in baseball (the Tigers) this week.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Yields five runs in loss

    Kelly (5-4) took the loss against Cincinnati on Monday, pitching six innings and allowing five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven. There were some positives to Kelly's performance -- he racked up 14 swinging strikes, struck out seven and completed six innings for the second straight game -- but he was unable to take advantage of an early 4-1 lead. After holding the Reds to one run through four frames, the right-hander gave up three runs in the fifth and another in the sixth to fall behind. Overall, Kelly yielded more than three runs for the first time in five starts and for just the second time through 13 outings this season. His 3.68 ERA is respectable, though it comes with a less-promising 1.35 WHIP.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Earns fifth win

    Kelly (5-3) earned the win Wednesday, allowing zero runs on one hit and three walks over six innings against the Reds. He struck out five. Kelly never allowed more than one baserunner in an inning en route to his fifth win. Wednesday's performance marked the right-hander's fourth straight quality start and his fourth scoreless appearance of the campaign. Across 12 starts and 65 innings, he sports a 3.32 ERA and 54:27 K:BB. Kelly's next start is tentatively scheduled for a rematch with the Reds in Arizona on Monday.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Works on timing

    Kelly believes he's figured out an issue with his mechanics ahead of Wednesday's start against the Reds, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Kelly has allowed 16 earned runs in 17 innings over his last four starts, including an outing at Dodger Stadium in which he allowed eight runs in two innings. He pitched brilliantly prior to that stretch, posting a 1.71 ERA over 42 innings and seven starts. "I think more than anything it's a feel thing," Kelly said. "My timing has been a little bit off as far as mechanics. But the last week, with my bullpen (Monday), has been a lot better. It's been a lot easier to command stuff. It's been going where I want it to." A common thread in the four recent outings has been walks -- he's issued 13 free passes in those 17 innings. When the right-hander was cruising, 68 percent of his pitches were strikes compared to 60 percent during the recent four-game run. Kelly enters Wednesday's game confident he'll get back to attacking hitters as he had earlier in the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Takes loss Saturday

    Kelly (3-3) was tagged with the loss against the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings. Kelly gave up a leadoff homer to Mookie Betts in the first inning but bounced back by keeping the Dodgers from scoring again until the fifth, when Los Angeles tagged him for a pair of runs. That was enough to send Kelly to the loss, as Arizona managed only two second-inning runs in the contest. The right-hander has given up three or fewer runs in nine of 10 outings this season, but an eight-run blowup against the Dodgers on May 17 has his ERA at 3.67 on the campaign. He's expected to make his next start in Pittsburgh on Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Kelly registered a no-decision during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with two strikeouts in five innings. Kelly pitched well Sunday aside from the second inning, when a P.J. Higgins triple cleared the bases with two out. The 33-year-old has come back to earth during his last three turns with a 10.50 ERA across 12 innings after posting a dazzling 1.22 mark during his first six starts. Kelly will take a 3.49 ERA and 1.31 WHIP into a start scheduled to come next weekend against the Dodgers.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Tipping pitches?

    Diamondbacks pitching coach Brent Strom believes the team "identified a few things" that Kelly might have done to tip his pitches during his most recent start against the Dodgers, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Kelly's results against the Dodgers came out of nowhere. He sailed through his first seven starts, posting a 1.71 ERA over 42 innings, before Los Angeles touched him for eight runs in two innings Tuesday. Strom credited the club's analytics department for helping catch what Kelly was doing, which the right-hander addressed during his between-starts session Friday. Kelly is next scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Cubs.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Roughed up in loss

    Kelly (3-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers, allowing eight runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two in two innings. Kelly was ineffective from the start, as the first three batters reached safely, plating two runs. The second inning then saw six runs cross the plate, three on Edwin Rios' home run. In all, nine of the 14 batters he faced reached safely. After not allowing a home run in his first six starts, Kelly has given up a homer in consecutive starts. Despite the poor outing Tuesday, he's still sporting a 3.27 ERA across 44 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Nearly goes the distance

    Kelly (3-1) earned the win during Friday's 4-1 victory over Colorado, allowing one run on seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts in 8.2 innings. Kelly gave up his lone run in the first inning then shut down Colorado's offense for the rest of the game en route to his third win. He fell in line for the victory after Arizona scored three runs in the eighth but couldn't quite hold on for the complete game, permitting a pair of two-out singles before being removed. The 33-year-old has been a revelation this season, firing four straight quality starts while allowing five runs in 27.2 innings during the stretch. He'll face a real test against the Dodgers next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Posts quality start but takes loss

    Kelly (1-1) was charged with the loss against the Dodgers on Monday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings. The right-hander held the Dodgers' potent offense mostly at bay to notch his second straight quality start, but he was outdueled by Walker Buehler -- who threw his first career shutout -- and Kelly was saddled with his first loss. Kelly wasn't as sharp as in his previous start, when he allowed just one run over six frames, but he impressively recovered from a rough first inning during which the Dodgers produced two runs. Kelly still has a standout 1.69 ERA on this season, and he'll likely make his next start in St. Louis this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Sharp in first win of season

    Kelly (1-0) picked up the win in Wednesday's 11-2 rout of the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five. The right-hander saw his scoreless streak to begin the season end at 15 innings, but he still put together another excellent outing in his first quality start of the season, and this time he actually got some run support. Kelly sports a 0.59 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB through 15.1 innings, and while some regression is clearly due, even his current 1.70 FIP is outstanding.
