Carson Kelly hits first home run of the season on Tuesday

Catcher Carson Kelly went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, a walk, and a strikeout in the Diamondbacks 7-5 loss to the A's on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Kelly put the D-Backs on the board in the bottom of the second inning when took Jesus Luzardo deep for a three-run blast. It was Kelly's only hit of the game and his first long ball of 2021. The 26-year-old backstop is quietly having a great start to the year, slashing .429/.519/.667 with two doubles, a home run, and four RBI across 21 at-bats. He's split his time fairly evenly with Stephen Vogt but he should absolutely be rostered in two-catcher and deeper mixed leagues.
