Mets designated INF/OF Ty Kelly for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for lefty reliever Jerry Blevins, who was officially re-signed to a one-year, $6.5 million free agent contract on Thursday. Kelly should draw interest on waivers because of his defensive versatility. He batted .241/.352/.345 in 71 major league plate appearances last season with the Mets.

Ty Kelly - 3B - Mets

Mets optioned INF Ty Kelly to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kelly was only with the club in an emergency depth role due to the massive amount of injuries that the Mets were forced to deal with in their infield. He'll bide his time at Triple-A for a few weeks and should return in a reserve role once rosters expand in September.

Mets recalled INF Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Kelly has batted .148/.207/.259 in 29 plate appearances with the Mets this season. He'll provide some depth with Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) sidelined, but he's not fantasy relevant.

Mets recalled INF/OF Ty Kelly from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He's taking the place of Juan Lagares, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a torn thumb ligament. Kelly has had a few stints with the Mets this year, batting .174 over 23 at-bats. He's only played third base this season but could see time in the outfield with Lagares sidelined.

Ty Kelly - 3B - Mets

Mets optioned INF/OF Ty Kelly to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The Mets needed to clear room on the 25-man roster for the recently acquired Kelly Johnson and Kelly, Ty, served as the transaction casualty. Prior to being sent down, the 27-year-old third baseman had picked up four hits in 23 at-bats during his 10 games played with the Mets. Kelly will return to a robust .391/.478/.548 Triple-A triple-slash when he re-merges with the affiliate in Las Vegas.

Ty Kelly - 3B - Mets

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.

Ty Kelly - 3B - Mets

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.
