Dodgers' Ty Kelly: Links up with Dodgers
Kelly announced Sunday via his personal Twitter account that he signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers.
After briefly retiring in 2019, Kelly elected to resume his career in 2021 in independent ball. He eventually caught on with the Mariners on a minor-league deal, appearing in 22 games last season for the organization's Triple-A affiliate and posting a .670 OPS over 90 plate appearances. Kelly will presumably report to Triple-A Oklahoma City with his new organization once the minor-league season gets underway.... See More ... See Less

Ty Kelly: Heads to indy ball
Kelly came out of retirement to sign with the Kansas City Monarchs of the independent American Association on Saturday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Kelly announced his retirement back in 2019, but it appears he's not quite done with the sport after all. Whether or not this is the start of an attempt to return to the MLB level remains to be seen, but as a 32-year-old with a career .203/.288/.323 slash line in 188 plate appearances at the highest level, it would be a surprise to see him have much of an impact down the line....

The 31-year-old utility man had spent the 2019 campaign in the Angels organization, appearing exclusively at Triple-A Salt Lake and batting .246 with one home run and three steals. Kelly had previously logged time in the big leagues with the Mets and Phillies between 2016 and 2018, slashing .203/.288/.323 in 188 plate appearances spanning 118 games.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Ty Kelly: Joins Angels
Kelly signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Per Murray, Kelly's deal doesn't include an invitation to major-league spring training, so the veteran utility man won't be given the opportunity to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster. Instead, Kelly will likely begin the campaign at Triple-A Salt Lake after slashing .259/.348/.416 with eight home runs in 2018 with the Mets' Pacific Coast League affiliate in Las Vegas....

Mets' Ty Kelly: Optioned back to minors
Kelly was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Mets' Ty Kelly: Reassigned to minors camp
The Mets reassigned Kelly to their minor-league camp Tuesday.
Kelly amassed 105 plate appearances with the Mets and Phillies last season, but with Wilmer Flores and Jose Reyes earmarked for utility infield roles, the 29-year-old was a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster. He'll instead serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Las Vegas to open the 2018 season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Ty Kelly: Agrees to minor-league deal with Mets
Kelly agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
After splitting time with the Phillies and Mets in 2017, Kelly will return to New York for the upcoming season. His ability to play both the infield and outfield is valuable to the club, but he offers little fantasy value coming off a 2017 season in which he hit .191/.257/.337 over 70 games.... See More ...

Ty Kelly: Becomes free agent
Kelly cleared waivers Wednesday and is now a free agent, Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Kelly offers versatility on defense, as he spent time at second and third base as well as each spot in the outfield this season. However, he doesn't carry much fantasy value on offense. Kelly owns a .211/.297/.340 line for his career and hit just .191 with a .595 OPS over 70 games with the Mets and Phillies this season.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Ty Kelly: Returning to majors
Kelly has been promoted to the big-league roster, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Kelly returns to the big leagues after being shipped to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Aug. 4, making it a short stint in the minors. It was expected for Kelly to return to the Phillies when the rosters expanded in September, so the call up now doesn't come as a huge surprise. In 48 games with the Phillies, Kelly is hitting .186 with one home run and 10 runs batted in.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ty Kelly: Heads to Lehigh Valley
Kelly was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Kelly had been squeezed out of regular playing time back in mid-July, and now that an extra catcher was needed on the active roster with Andrew Knapp (hand) sidelined temporarily, Kelly wound up being the odd man out. The utility man hasn't performed well at the plate this season, but he'll likely be back in the big leagues once rosters expand in September at the latest.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Ty Kelly: Likely to head back to bench role
Kelly is out of the lineup Monday against the Marlins.
With Cesar Hernandez (oblique) returning from the 10-day disabled list Monday and immediately reclaiming the starting second base gig, Kelly's run of regular playing time looks to be over.

Phillies' Ty Kelly: Takes seat Wednesday
Kelly is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates, Stephen Gross of The Allentown Morning Call reports.
Kelly is still expected to serve as the primary second baseman while Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is sidelined, although the 28-year-old has just three hits to his name in the past 14 games. As a result, he'll head to the bench for the second time in three games, allowing Andres Blanco to log a start at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
