April 17, 2022
Kelley (shoulder) worked three innings Thursday in his season debut in Low-A Kannapolis' 5-1 win over Down East. He gave up a run on one hit -- a solo home run -- and issued one walk while striking out two.
Kelley was sidelined for the final month of the 2021 season with a right shoulder impingement, but he appears to have received a clean bill of health coming out of spring training. The 2020 second-round pick could be in line for an extended stay at Kannapolis to begin the 2022 campaign after he submitted a 6.86 ERA, 2.05 WHIP and 25:22 K:BB in 21 innings with the affiliate a season ago before sustaining the shoulder injury.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Most teams would have salivated over Kelley a decade ago, but now teams tend to avoid using premium picks on physically mature (6-foot-3, 230 pounds) prep righties with upper-90s fastballs. It's a very risky subset, both for health and performance reasons. The White Sox rolled the dice on Kelley, selecting him with the No. 47 overall pick last year. His fastball has double-plus velocity, but it lacks ideal movement. His low-80s changeup is arguably his best pitch. He generates his premium velocity without much effort, which is partly why he projects to have above-average command in pro ball. Kelley has had trouble spinning a breaking ball, but there are reports his slider has been steadily improving. He will need to stay on top of his diet and conditioning to avoid getting too big, and the breaking ball needs to emerge as a legitimate third pitch, but there's a small chance he ends up being special.
