RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Despite a 1.98 spring ERA, Kelley somewhat surprisingly didn't make the team out of camp last year. The reason stemmed from having a glut of right-handed middle relievers and it being his first full season following Tommy John surgery. As a result, Kelley found himself bouncing between Tacoma and Seattle. While in Seattle, though, he turned in quality bullpen work, posting a 9.1 K/9 in 47 appearances. His arm held up fine, and he heads into 2013 likely with increased bullpen work ahead. The Mariners are stocked with hard-throwing, late-inning right-handers, which could make Kelley expendable, but more likely he ends up in middle relief with his low-to-mid-90s fastball and outstanding slider that is equally effective against righties and lefties.

2012

Kelley made his way back to Seattle in September last year after undergoing partial Tommy John surgery in late 2010. He fared well in his limited work, setting him up for a late-inning bullpen job this season. The right-handed Kelley features a mid-90s fastball and an outstanding slider and is equally as tough on righties as he is on lefties. A healthy and productive spring will go a long way in cementing him as a set-up man for Brandon League.

2011

Kelley's a late-inning, right-handed reliever whose equally as tough on lefties as he is on righties. His season last year was cut short because of an elbow injury that eventually required surgery. In his first 17 appearances, he allowed five earned runs with 22 strikeouts and seven walks in 20 innings. Then the elbow acted up, and he allowed six earned runs with a 4:5 K:BB in his last five outings. Kelley, who features a mid-90s fastball and an outstanding slider, hopes to be ready for spring training, though that remains to be seen. If healthy, he'll likely slot into a setup role again.

2010

Kelley dazzled in spring training last year and not only earned a bullpen spot but garnered closer-of-the-future accolades as well. After allowing two earned runs in his first 11 appearances, he was sidelined most of May and June by an oblique injury. He returned in July, and after some initial struggles regained his stride by mid-summer, allowing just four walks in his last 23 appearances (27.1 IP) and stranding nine of 11 inherited runners. He has a mid-90s fastball and a slider that last year was rated by Baseball America as the best in Seattle's minor-league system. Kelley will return to a late-inning role, and if David Aardsma falters, could take over the ninth inning.
