by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“It's probably something that's not going to take too long or very serious, but the nature of our games, they need us out there every night,” Kelley said Friday, per U-T San Diego. “I'm going to take advantage of it to continue working on what I've been working on and get my calf healed up.

Padres' Shawn Kelley off to rough start with new team


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Padres pitcher Shawn Kelley has endured a rough first few games with his new team, giving up six runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks in three innings while striking out two.

"Anybody who knows anything about baseball would know it's not the start that I wanted with a new club," Kelley told U-T San Diego, "but you're going to have a couple outings a couple different times throughout the year that aren't going to be favorable. Mine just happened to be right out of the gate."

Kelley has spoken with pitching coach Darren Balsley about "staying on plane and working downhill."

"I think I've been trying to reach back, because I have given up a few hits, and find a little more," Kelley said. "I've kind of been overthrowing a little bit. I know what i have to do to get guys out. I've done it for a while, so it's really just continuing to stick with it."

Kelley and the Padres start a three-game road series against the Cubs Friday.


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.

Shawn Kelley says he's back to pre-injury form


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

"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."
