Drafted in the 19th round (580th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2019 (signed for $100,000)
A 6-foot-2, 210-pound righthander, Kelly has less stuff than most pitchers ranked in the top 500, but thanks to a sidearm delivery and good control, he’s created uncomfortable at-bats for hitters over his three-year career in the Colonial Athletic Association. Kelly’s fastball sits in the mid-80s and touches 89, and he throws both a slider and a curveball that are below-average. He’s posted a 3.54 ERA this spring in 13 starts and 76 innings, with 81 strikeouts (9.5 per nine) and just 20 walks (2.36 per nine). Kelly also threw 36 innings last summer on the Cape Cod League, and while his strikeout rate wasn’t that impressive (6.75 per nine) he posted a 1.25 ERA and had success with his unconventional release point. Kelly shouldn’t be selected until day three, but he could be an interesting choice for a team that values his track record and is excited about an unorthodox reliever profile.
