Marlins' Don Kelly: Assigned outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Designated for assignment earlier in the week, Kelly has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 36-year-old will likely play out the rest of the year as organizational depth in the minors now that he's off the 40-man roster.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly was designated for assignment Thursday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

The Marlins needed to clear a spot for Dee Gordon, who finished serving his 80-game PED suspension, and Kelly was the victim. He should pass through waivers and head to Triple-A to serve as organizational infield depth.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Triples twice with time running out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly went 3-for-5 with two triples, two RBI and two runs in Wednesday's blowout victory over the Phillies.

The veteran made the most of his spot start Wednesday, notching more hits than he's had combined in all of this season and last. Kelly is providing depth at corner infield for the Marlins while Justin Bour (ankle) is on the DL, but with Bour slated to return soon, the 36-year-old's time on the roster may soon come to an end. He may be worth a punt play in daily leagues if he draws another start before Bour returns.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly is in the lineup and batting seventh for Monday's game against the Phillies, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Kelly will get the start at first base in a tough matchup against right-handed ace Jose Fernandez. The 36-year-old is just a .229 career hitter and has only played in eight major league games since the start of 2015, but he will likely see starts against right-handed starters while Justin Bour is on the disabled list.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. He will start at first base and bat seventh in the order for the afternoon matchup against the Mets.

Kelly has been with the Marlins on a minor league deal since the beginning of the regular season, posting a .561 OPS through 48 games for the Zephyrs. He'll provide Miami with corner infield depth in the short term, as Justin Bour (ankle) was placed on the DL on Wednesday in a corresponding move.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly re-signed with the Marlins on a minor league deal Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

After a solid spring, Kelly was released by the Marlins on Tuesday, but signed with the team Wednesday on a minor league deal. He could surface on the team if a rash of injuries strike, but he's likely to be infield organizational depth.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Granted his released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly has been granted his release, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

A non-roster invitee to spring training, Kelly had just six hits (all single) over 24 at-bats in the Grapefruit League. He made a quick recovery from Tommy John surgery in July, and he may end up re-signing with the Marlins on a minor league contact.

Marlins' Don Kelly: Signs minor league contract with Marlins on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelly signed a minor league contract with the Marlins on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Kelly signed with the Marlins last season, but was limited to one at bat in the majors due to a broken finger and then Tommy John surgery. If he's healthy for spring training, he'll likely compete for a reserve role as a utility player, thanks to his experience in playing almost every position on the field.

The Marlins also transferred pitcher Aaron Crow (elbow) to the 60-day disabled list, clearing a 40-man roster spot for Reid Brignac, who joins Carter Capps and J.T. Realmuto as the Marlins' active-roster additions Monday.

The Marlins are expected to announce two roster moves Monday after infielder Don Kelly and catcher Jeff Mathis both fractured their right ring fingers Sunday, the Palm Beach Post reports.

"We talked about keeping guys healthy all spring and we were able to do it," manager Mike Redmond said Sunday. "It’s one of those things in baseball that happens. Unfortunately, it happened on the same day to two guys. We’ve got to be able to pick up, patch it together and move on."

Mathis believes he will be out four-to-six weeks while recovering. Kelly is expected to see a hand specialist.
