  • Athletics' Michael Kelly: Claimed by Oakland

    The Athletics claimed Kelly off waivers from the Guardians on Friday.

    Kelly was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Tuesday. The 31-year-old right-hander posted a 3.78 ERA with 16 strikeouts over 16.2 major-league innings in 2023 and should be a strong consideration for the Opening Day bullpen in Oakland next spring.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Designated for assignment

    Kelly was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Tuesday.

    Kelly is 31 years old and has logged only 20.2 career innings at the major-league level, but he's generally been effective when given a chance. The righty reliever could draw interest on waivers given the high demand -- and low supply -- for bullpen help.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Sent back to minors

    Kelly was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

    He was sent out in favor of Triston McKenzie ahead of the latter's return Sunday. Kelly holds a 3.78 ERA and 16:9 K:BB over 16.2 innings during his time in the big leagues this season.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Returns to majors

    The Guardians recalled Kelly from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Two days after being optioned to Triple-A, Kelly will return to the Guardians following Logan Allen's placement on the injured list with a shoulder injury. Kelly gave up four runs (three earned) across two innings during his last stint with Cleveland.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Optioned to Triple-A

    Cleveland optioned Kelly to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

    This move opens a 28-man roster spot for Hunter Gaddis, who is starting for the Guardians on Thursday against the Orioles. Kelly had surrendered four runs -- three earned -- over his last two innings (two appearances) out of the Guardians' bullpen.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Gives up two runs in return

    Kelly (back) gave up three runs (two earned) on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning of relief in his return from the 15-day injured list in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Royals.

    The Guardians opened up a spot on the 28-man active roster for Kelly when they exposed Matt Moore to waivers, with the southpaw reliever ultimately getting claimed by Miami. While making his first appearance for the big club in more than a month, Kelly was roughed up by the Royals and needed 28 pitches just to record three outs. He'll likely work in middle relief or lower-leverage spots over the rest of the season.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Ready for rehab assignment

    Kelly (back) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Double-A Akron.

    Kelly landed on the 15-day injured list two weeks ago, so he'll likely require only one or two tune-up outings in the minors before being ready to rejoin the Cleveland bullpen. Prior to being deactivated, Kelly posted a 2.84 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 12.2 innings across 11 relief appearances.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Headed to 15-day IL

    Kelly will be placed on the 15-day injured list Friday with back spasms, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Kelly has made three straight scoreless appearances in a multi-inning relief role for the Guardians, but he'll be sidelined until at least the end of August. James Karinchak is expected to be brought up from Triple-A Columbus to fill the bullpen vacancy in Cleveland.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Snags first big-league win

    Kelly (1-0) allowed two hits and struck out two without walking a batter over 1.2 innings to earn the win Monday versus the Pirates.

    Xzavion Curry started but wasn't stretched out long enough to qualify for the win in an 11-0 blowout. Kelly's win was his first in the majors over six career appearances. He's tossed 2.2 scoreless innings with four strikeouts with the Guardians this season, though he figures to remain in a low-leverage role for as long as he's in the majors.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Recalled by Guardians

    Kelly was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Kelly is up to replace Shane Bieber, who hit the injured list with elbow inflammation, though he won't be taking Bieber's place in the rotation. Kelly has worked exclusively as a reliever for Columbus this season, striking out 36 percent of opposing batters en route to a 2.73 ERA. He spent two single-day stints on the big-league roster earlier in the season but didn't make an appearance on either occasion.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Optioned to Triple-A

    Kelly was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Kelly has been up with the Guardians a couple times this season but has yet to make an appearance. He's clearing out to make room for the return of Friday's starter, Cal Quantrill.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Recalled to MLB bullpen

    Cleveland recalled Kelly from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Kelly made his MLB debut with the Phillies last year at age 29 and will get another big-league opportunity -- this time with the Guardians -- after delivering a 2.73 ERA and 48:18 K:BB through 29.2 innings this season at Columbus. The right-hander figures to operate in long relief.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Sent to Triple-A

    Cleveland optioned Kelly to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Kelly was sent down to Triple-A to make room on the 26-man active roster for Triston McKenzie (shoulder), who was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday versus the Twins. After being called up from Columbus on Saturday, Kelly didn't get a chance to make his Cleveland debut in the lone game he spent with the big club.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Selected from Columbus

    The Guardians selected Kelly's contract from Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Kelly holds a strong 1.61 ERA and 36:13 K:BB through 22.1 frames in Triple-A and pitched well in his four major-league appearances last season with the Phillies. He'll replace Hunter Gaddis in Cleveland's bullpen and likely work in low-leverage situations to begin with. Peyton Battenfield (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day IL to make room for Kelly on the 40-man roster.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Reassigned to minors camp

    Kelly was reassigned Friday to the minor-league side of Guardians camp, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Hunter Gaddis and Tim Herrin will claim the final two spots in the Opening Day bullpen for Cleveland. Kelly made his MLB debut with the Phillies last year at age 29 but logged only four inning of relief before being outrighted off their 40-man roster in July.

  • Guardians' Michael Kelly: Inks minor-league deal

    Kelly signed a minor-league contract with the Guardians on Wednesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Kelly's deal with Cleveland includes an invitation to big-league spring training in February, allowing the 30-year-old to showcase his talents against major-league caliber batters ahead of the 2023 campaign. The reliever made his big-league debut in 2022, surrendering one earned run while striking out four batters over four innings with the Phillies. With plenty of established arms already part of Philadelphia's bullpen, it seems unlikely Kelly will end up cracking the Opening Day roster.

  • Phillies' Michael Kelly: Clears waivers

    The Phillies outrighted Kelly to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    Philadelphia initially optioned Kelly off the 26-man active roster Wednesday, and at some point in the 24 hours that followed, the organization designated him for assignment. With the 29-year-old reliever having gone unclaimed upon being exposed to waivers, he'll stick in the organization and serve as bullpen depth at the Triple-A level.

  • Phillies' Michael Kelly: Moves back to minors

    The Phillies optioned Kelly to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    In a corresponding move, the Phillies selected the contract of infielder Will Toffey from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Since Kelly worked an inning out of the bullpen in both of the past two days, he was unlikely to be available for Wednesday's series finale in Toronto.

  • Phillies' Michael Kelly: Back with big-league club

    Kelly was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Kelly made his big-league debut in mid-June but has been in the minors for the past couple weeks, and he'll rejoin the big club Friday. The 29-year-old has a 7.33 ERA in 23 outings for Lehigh Valley this year, though he delivered scoreless frames in each of his first two major-league appearances.

  • Phillies' Michael Kelly: Heads to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Kelly to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Sunday's 9-3 loss to the Nationals.

    Kelly struck out one over a perfect inning of relief Sunday and maintains an unblemished ERA through his first two appearances in the majors, but it won't be enough for him to stick around with the big club. He should find himself near the top of the list for a call-up if the Phillies require an additional bullpen arm at any point.
