20-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Brewers may have struck gold with their selection of Kelly in the second round out of a junior college in Illinois. He has a lot to improve on to become a likely fantasy asset, but he produces easy mid-90s velocity from the left side, so he has the upside we look for in low-level pitching prospects. Kelly has great athleticism and a towering 6-foot-6, 205-pound frame. As one might expect, his secondary pitches have a long way to go. He has a slider that can play as an above-average pitch against low-level hitters who have to gear up for his fastball, but he needs to improve his consistency with that pitch. His changeup is more theory than substance. Kelly's command will also probably need to improve by a full grade for him to make it as a starter. He is a big lefty who could touch triple digits at some point in 2020, so he needs to be on watch lists at the very least. Read Past Outlooks
Drafted by Brewers in second round
PMilwaukee Brewers  A
June 3, 2019
The Brewers have selected Kelly with the No. 65 overall pick in the 2019 first-year player draft.
ANALYSIS
A 6-foot-6 southpaw from a junior college in Illinois, Kelly put up ridiculous numbers this season against weak competition. He has a massive ceiling, but an extremely low floor. Kelly can touch 98 mph with his fastball, but his secondary pitches are pretty raw, as is his command and control. Even if the secondary offerings don't develop as the Brewers hope, he has the arm speed, size and handedness to be a weapon out of the bullpen.
