Padres' Shawn Kelley feeling good after rough spring start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Padres pitcher Shawn Kelley has allowed just one hit and one walk in his last 5 1/3 spring innings while striking out six and feels ready for the regular season, MLB.com reports.

"I feel good," Kelley said Wednesday. "I think I'm ready to go."

Kelley got out to a slow start this spring, allowing home runs in each of his first two appearances.

"It usually takes me a few [games] to get going," Kelley said. "I stay away from the slider my first few outings just to get the arm strength built up. When you're in Arizona and you are just throwing fastballs, late in a spring-training game, balls get hit."

The team like Kelley's fastball-slider mix and he'll likely feature in a setup role for the team this year.

"This guy can make pitches. He can truly pitch to a hitter's weakness," manager Bud Black said.


Black: Shawn Kelley 'brings talent' to Padres bullpen


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Padres pitcher Shawn Kelley was traded to San Diego this offseason, and manager Bud Black spoke Thursday about the talent and experience the lefty brings to the Padres bullpen, U-T San Diego reports.

"You've got some guys now who are starting to get some tenure, some experience, in (Dale) Thayer and (Nick) Vincent and (Kevin) Quackenbush," Black said. "Shawn brings a little bit of that service time, but more importantly, he brings talent. He's got a good arm, he's got a good, live fastball, he's got a good slider, he's pitched at the backend of bullpens, he's been around some good closers, he's been in good bullpens."

Kelley threw his slider 57.7 percent of the time last season, second among all qualified relievers, but has confidence throwing his pitches in any situation.

"I have no problem throwing both pitches (fastball and slider) of the plate, up and down to lefties," Kelley said. "I think with the advanced scouting reports and all the information we have, every lefty has at least one hole or two against a righty, and I feel like I have something I'm comfortable doing to match that. ... I'll do whatever I have to do to exploit a lefty's weakness."

Set to become a free agent after the season, Kelley went 3-6 with a 4.53 ERA and 67:20 K:BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings with the Yankees last season.


Padres' Black: Joaquin Benoit to close, happy with options


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Padres manager Bud Black said Thursday that while Joaquin Benoit is set to be the team's closer, other relievers could see save chances as well, MLB.com reports.

"You want to get your closer in games because that means you have a lead … and if he's closing games that means you are winning," Black explained. "That means at some point, we have got to put Joaquin down [because], he can't pitch every game. That's what I want."

Black said he has five players available that he's comfortable using in the ninth inning: Benoit, Kevin Quackenbush, Shawn Kelley, Nick Vincent and Dale Thayer.

"Joaquin is projected to be our closer but if he's down then we have a number of options to choose from, guys who have closed major-league games and guys who have been successful at it," Black said. "We have five guys we feel comfortable giving the ball to. That's one of those situations we won't know until we get into the season to see how guys are throwing, how well they're executing their pitches, their confidence, their arms, their stuff … all that stuff adds into the daily decision as to who might close a game if Joaquin is down."

Benoit earned 11 saves in 12 chances with the Padres in 2014, posting a 1.49 ERA and 64:14 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings.

Padres snag RHP Kelley from Yankees for ailing RHP Barbato


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) The Padres have acquired right-handed reliever Shawn Kelley from the Yankees for pitching prospect John Barbato.

Shawn Kelley runs into trouble in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Yankees reliever Shawn Kelley suffered a rare loss Saturday, as he could not work his way out of a jam in a 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays.

Kelley entered the game to start the seventh inning, and allowed a leadoff walk followed by a double, to put runners on second and third base. He struck one batter before he was pulled from the game, and left with the bases loaded. One of those runners came around to score what would prove to be the decisive run in the loss.

Kelly's ERA rose to 3.69, while he fell to 1-3 with the loss. He has allowed 13 runs in 31 2/3 innings, with 41 strikeouts and 12 walks.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"The first handful of outings, there was still some concern about my back," he told The Journal News. "It felt fine, but when you walk around for a month and you can barely bend over, it tends to get ingrained in your mind. I’ve had a few weeks now straight where I haven’t had to wake up in the morning thinking about my back, and I think that’s allowed me to get back to where I was before I got hurt."

Kelley is 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA and four saves in five chances.
