Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Doubles in spring win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's spring game against the Rockies.

Kelly is 3-for-11 with a double, four runs and an RBI through five spring appearances. The 25-year-old backstop emerged as the Diamondbacks' primary catcher in 2019 after beginning the season as one of three in a rotation. Kelly swatted 18 home runs in 365 plate appearances while proving he can control the game from behind the plate. He returns as the top catcher and should see an increase in at-bats in 2020.

Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Fighting slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It should be remembered that Kelly has never played this deep into a season.

Avila isn't lighting it up offensively of late, either, as he'll enter Monday with just two hits in 29 at-bats in his last 11 contests.
