Cubs signed RHP Casey Kelly to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The former top prospect put up a 5.82 ERA over 10 appearances with the Braves last season and held a 3.53 mark across 74 frames at Triple-A. Kelly is now 27 and is simply a depth guy at this point.
Jan 27 - 5:01 PM

Braves sent RHP Casey Kelly outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly, a former top prospect with the Red Sox and Padres, holds a 6.39 ERA in 62 career major league innings. The 27-year-old right-hander is off the Braves' 40-man roster.

Casey Kelly is expected to start Sunday against the Phillies.

The Braves need someone to take the spot of Lucas Harrell, who was traded to Texas on Wednesday. Kelly made 10 appearances for the Braves earlier this year, collecting a 5.82 ERA while mostly working out of the bullpen. Aaron Blair is close to returning to the Braves' rotation so this might be the only start Casey gets.

Braves optioned RHP Casey Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly has posted a 5.49 ERA over nine appearances -- one start -- for the Braves this season. He's clearing room for the return of Michael Foltynewicz.

Casey Kelly could take Aaron Blair's spot in the Braves' rotation next Wednesday against the Indians.

Blair was demoted after an ugly start Friday against the Mets. Kelly, who was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month, owns a 5.79 ERA and 5/6 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings over one start and seven relief appearances with the Braves this season.

Braves optioned RHP Casey Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly drew the start against Philadelphia on Sunday before logging four innings in a relief appearance Wednesday versus the Brewers. The 26-year-old will do plenty of traveling between Atlanta and Gwinnett this year. Chris Withrow was called up to take his roster spot.
Thu, May 26, 2016 05:50:00 PM

Casey Kelly pitched well enough in his first start of the season, surrendering three runs on seven hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Kelly wasn't exactly dominating the Phillies, but he managed to limit the damage. The 26-year-old right-hander struck out one and walked one on the afternoon. Prior to earning the promotion, he held a 2.63 ERA with a 29/20 K/BB ratio across 37 2/3 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett. His next scheduled start would come against the Marlins at home, but nothing is guaranteed to this point. Regardless, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

The Braves have confirmed Casey Kelly will start Sunday against the Phillies.

Joel De La Cruz will be sent down in the corresponding roster move. Sunday was supposed to be Aaron Blair's turn in the rotation but he was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this week. Kelly owns a 2.63 ERA in seven minor league outings this year. He made a relief appearance for the Braves earlier this season, allowing one earned run over three innings of work.

Casey Kelly is expected to be recalled to start on Sunday in Philadelphia.

The former top prospect made a relief appearance for the Braves earlier this season, but this will be his first start for them. Kelly has posted a 2.63 ERA and 29/20 K/BB ratio over 37 2/3 innings at Triple-A Gwinnett this season. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Fri, May 20, 2016 06:00:00 PM

Kelly was needed for three innings on Friday and would have been unavailable for the next couple of days, which prompted the need for a fresh arm in the bullpen. He should be back with the big league club before long.

Braves recalled RHP Casey Kelly from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly was excellent in his last start at Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday, firing seven shutout innings. He'll work in long relief for the Braves initially but could see some looks out of the rotation down the road.
