Carson Kelly has 2024 option picked up by Tigers

The Detroit Tigers have exercised their $3.5 million club option for the 2024 season on catcher Carson Kelly.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly was cut loose by the D-backs mid-season and continued to struggle with the Tigers. He hit just .173 with one homer in 59 plate appearances with Detroit but his solid defense and lack of big-league-ready catching options in Detroit has led to the club picking up its option on the veteran backstop.

Carson Kelly goes deep, drives in two runs in loss to Athletics

Carson Kelly had a solid performance in Friday's game against the Athletics, hitting a home run and driving in two runs.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the loss, Kelly's power at the plate was on display as he continues to provide some pop for the Tigers. With 46 games played this season, Kelly's batting average sits at .214 with two home runs and 11 RBI. While his overall numbers may not be eye-popping, his ability to drive in runs and hit for power make him a valuable option in deeper fantasy leagues in need of catching help.
