Merrill Kelly gets chased early in Diamondbacks loss Tuesday

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Merrill Kelly pitched two innings on Tuesday, striking out two, walking four, and allowing five hits for eight earned runs in the Diamondbacks' 12-3 Game 2 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly saw his strong ERA evaporate somewhat on Tuesday as he gave up a whopping eight runs in just two innings. The starting pitcher was pulled early despite throwing only 56 pitches and it was mostly due to his having allowed so many runs that the game was pretty much out of hand.

Merrill Kelly pitches five innings against Marlins Wednesday

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Merrill Kelly pitched five innings on Wednesday, striking out four, walking two, and allowing seven hits for three earned runs in the Diamondbacks' 11-3 loss to the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly was ultimately saved from the loss on Wednesday as Jordan Luplow hit a 2-run homer to tie the game up. The starting pitcher still maintains an ERA of 1.71 and a WHIP of 1.12 despite one of his worst performances so far this season showing he can be rostered in every league and started as a plug and play pitcher.

Merrill Kelly picks up his third win of the season over Rockies Friday

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Merrill Kelly pitched 8 2/3 innings on Friday, striking out eight, walking two, and allowing seven hits for one earned run in the Diamondbacks' 4-1 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly has been absolutely fantastic so far this year as he now has his third win on the season and boasts an ERA of 1.22. The Diamondbacks starting pitcher came a third of an inning shy of pitching a complete game but had to be pulled due to allowing a single to bring the tying run to the plate having thrown 106 pitches already.

Merrill Kelly tosses seven scoreless Saturday

Merrill Kelly allowed just two hits while striking out four in seven innings of Saturday's 2-0 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly absolutely dominated the St. Louis offense on Saturday, allowing just two total baserunners. The only downside to his day from a fantasy perspective was the low strikeout total, but he made up for it with his third scoreless outing of 2022. The righthander now boasts an impressive 1.27 ERA and a WHIP of 1.02 in 28 1/3 innings this season.

Merrill Kelly allows three runs in Monday's loss

Merrill Kelly was handed the loss after allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings while striking out four during Monday's 4-0 loss to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Kelly was solid against arguably the best lineup in all of baseball, but he got zero run support from his offense. The righty is off to a great start in 2022, boasting an ERA of 1.69 and a WHIP of 1.27 in 21 1/3 innings of work.
