Catcher Carson Kelly went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored, and a walk in the D-Backs 11-6 win over the Nationals on Thursday.
Kelly launched his second home run of the year off Patrick Corbin in the top of the first inning; Eduardo Escobar would follow that up with a solo dinger of his own as the D-backs were all over Corbin from the outset. Kelly has now homered in consecutive games and is slashing .440/.545/.760 over 25 at-bats to begin the season. He's been splitting time with Stephen Vogt behind the plate but has outperformed him on every level.
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.
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.

Kelly has been in an even time split with Stephen Vogt to begin the season but has outperformed his counterpart up to this point. Kelly is 5-for-8 to begin the season and is a decent deeper mixed league option at the shallowest position in fantasy baseball.
