Keone Kela agrees to deal with Diamondbacks

Free-agent RP Keone Kela has agreed to a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

Kela has struggled to stay healthy as of late, throwing only 12.2 innings since 2019. He was very effective in that 2019 season, posting a 2.12 ERA and 10 K/9. That being said, he likely won't be in the mix for saves with Arizona as the Dbacks have signed both Mark Melancon and Ian Kennedy this offseason.

Keone Kela (Tommy John surgery) cut loose by Padres

The Padres have declined a club option on relief pitcher Keone Kela, who is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Kela could pitch in the second half of 2022, but San Diego doesn't want to pay him $800,000. Injuries have certainly been a concern for the 28-year-old, who has pitched just 12.2 innings since the end of the 2019 season. Once he has fully recovered, Kela will likely find himself signing a minor league deal.

Keone Kela (elbow) will miss the remainder of 2021 due to Tommy John

Padres reliever Keone Kela will miss the remainder of the 2021 season due to Tommy John surgery. Kela underwent the surgery today, May 19th.

Fantasy Impact

After a 24 save season in 2018, Kela's career has taken a downward trend outside of a small 2019 sample of 29.2 innings with a 2.12 ERA. This will keep him out of the 2021 season and likely into part of the 2022 season.
