The latest minor moves from around baseball…
- Former major league utilityman Ty Kelly retired over the weekend, he humorously announced on Twitter (h/t: Jon Heyman of MLB Network). Kelly ended his career as a member of the Angels’ Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake after signing a minor league contract with the organization last winter. A 13th-round pick of the Orioles in 2009, Kelly ultimately saw major league action with the Mets and Phillies from 2016-18 – a 188-plate appearance span in which he batted .203/.288/.323 and racked up time at first, second, third and all three outfield positions. The 31-year-old wrapped up his Triple-A tenure with a .268/.368/.382 line across 2,353 trips to the plate.
Good luck in your retirement Ty. You played hard and gave it your all.
i know the Phillies have been bad for some time now, but looking back, it really ceases to amaze me how many absolutely terrible players the team had. Kelly, Brignac, Gwynn Jr, Cedric Hunter, Patrick Schuster, Phil Klein, Sean O’Sullivan…the list goes on and on.
BJ Rosenberg, Phillipe Aumont, Jake Thompson, David Buchanan, etc.
those are guys I remember the Mets constantly taking batting practice against.
well Thompson was a good prospect at least. substitute Ethan Martin.
Can’t forget Dalier Hinojosa or maybe even Darin Ruf
Zac Eflin, Juan Nicasio, Jose Alvarez, Nick Pivetta, Hector Neris. I see your bums of the past and raise you bums of the here and now.
Why would you consider Alvarez or Neris bums?
At least Brignac had Lauren Anderson…
Kelly will end his career with a career 1.000 postseason batting average.
Let the cat out of the hat.
Awesome personality and he always hustled out there. Best of luck in retirement!
Hustled always played everywhere great attitude best of luck ty
Good luck Ty!
