Perceived as a seat-filler until Jose Leclerc reclaimed his job, Kelley has compiled 11 saves with a 3.00 ERA, 32 strikeouts, and five walks in 33 innings. He's far too prone to the long ball for a closer pitching in Arlington, so expect his ERA to rise. Just as he built up a little bit of a leash in the final frame, the 35-year-old went on the IL with sore biceps. He hopes to avoid a lengthy absence, but this gives Leclerc a chance to run away with the ninth-inning role.

Kelley is technically the closer for Texas and hasn't done all that bad, but with Jose Leclerc right behind him, there is no guarantee Kelley will have the job next week, let alone for the rest of the season.
