After 7-run outing, ‘reverse export myth’ Kelly heads to IL with calf issue


Right-handed pitcher Merrill Kelly (Arizona Diamondbacks) has been placed on the disabled list.

According to, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), Arizona has placed Kelly on the disabled list (IL) with a right calf issue. To coincide with Kelly’s move, Arizona sent left-hander Joe Mantifly down to Triple-A and recalled right-handers Kevin Ginkel and Justin Martinez to fill the two open spots.

In his previous start, on May 25 against the San Francisco Giants, Kelly allowed seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits in five innings. He allowed the most runs and most hits in a single game this season, raising his ERA from 2.90 to 3.22. Coincidentally, she was sidelined shortly after the San Francisco game with a calf injury that was confirmed shortly afterward.메이저놀이터

Kelly is no stranger to Korean baseball fans. He spent four years with the SK Wyverns starting in 2015. During that time, he compiled a 48-32 record. After the 2018 season, he decided to return to the United States and signed with Arizona, fulfilling his dream of making his big league debut. He is one of the most successful “reverse exports” in baseball history.

In his five-year MLB career, Kelly has a 45-39 record with a 3.85 ERA. Last year, he had a career-high season with a 13-8 record and a 3.37 ERA. He was the team’s ace, pitching a whopping 200 and one-third innings. This season, he started 16 games and went 9-4 before suffering an injury.
