Mets purchased the contract of INF/OF Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Kelly was slashing .391/.478/.548 with two home runs and two stolen bases in 35 games this season at the Triple-A level. He is able to play all around the diamond defensively and will offer the Mets flexibility while first baseman Lucas Duda recovers from a back injury. But there's probably not much fantasy upside here. Eric Campbell is starting at first base on Monday night against the Nationals. May 23 - 3:39 PM

Ty Kelly has joined the Mets in Washington, D.C.

Kelly can play all around the diamond defensively, giving the Mets some flexibility while Lucas Duda recovers from a back injury. The 27-year-old career minor leaguer was hitting .391/.478/.548 with two home runs and two stolen bases in 35 games this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. We wouldn't expect those numbers to translate.

He was claimed off waivers from the Cardinals in late July, but hit just .259/.320/.310 with one homer and 12 RBI in 31 games at Triple-A Buffalo. He's being removed from the 40-man roster to create a spot for the newly-acquired Danny Dorn.

The move clears a spot for the newly-recalled Stephen Piscotty on the 40-man roster. Kelly, 27, was batting just .207 with two home runs and a .604 OPS over 269 plate appearances this season in Triple-A. He could pass through waivers unclaimed.

Ty Kelly - 3B - Mets

The 26-year-old had a chance to secure a bench spot on the team's Opening Day roster, but hit just .205/.319/.308 with three RBI in 39 spring at-bats. With his versatility, he should get an opportunity with the Cardinals at some point during the season.

Ty Kelly singled and walked twice in his three plate appearances Thursday against the Orioles.

Kelly played second base, left field and right field today. His versatility and on-base skills could make him a nice 25th man if the Cardinals can find a spot for him.
