Kelly was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a tuft fracture in his left great toe.
The 26-year-old was held out of the lineup Saturday for the second game in a row, and apparently his absence is due to an injury. Kelly doesn't have an official timeline for his return, though he'll be eligible to be activated May 25. Stephen Vogt and Daulton Varsho should split catching duties in the meantime for Arizona.
Kelly remains on the bench Saturday against the Nationals.
Kelly finds himself on the bench for second game in a row and the third time in four days. There haven't been reports of an injury, but it's odd to reduce the playing time of a fully healthy player who's hitting .338/.491/.613 on the year. Daulton Varsho starts behind the plate for the first time this season in his absence.
Kelly is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals.

The catcher remains one of the few consistent offensive forces in the Arizona lineup to begin the season. Kelly has five homers on the year, all of which have come in his last eight games, and the power surge has boosted his slash line to .341/.517/.756 through 58 plate appearances.
Kelly went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday's 14-11 extra-inning win over Cincinnati.
