Kelly begins his first season with the Ducks and 12th in professional baseball. The outfielder spent parts of three seasons in the Major Leagues (2016-18) with the New York Mets while also playing with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2017. In 118 MLB games, he has totaled three home runs, 21 RBIs, 21 runs, 32 hits, eight doubles and 20 walks. The switch-hitter launched his first big league home run off then-Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon on June 8, 2016. Later that year, he recorded a pinch-hit single off then-San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner in the National League Wild Card game at Citi Field.

The Dallas native was a key member of Team Israel’s impressive performance during the 2017 World Baseball Classic. He helped Israel win their group in the Pool A Round Robin, going 3-0, before finishing third in their group in the second round. Kelly also played with Team Israel during the 2019 European Baseball Championship in Germany, the Africa/Europe 2020 Olympic Qualification tournament, and the 2020 Summer Olympics.

The 32-year-old most recently played with the Salt Lake Bees (AAA, Angels) in 2019. He accumulated a .325 on-base percentage in 80 games along with 22 RBIs, 37 runs, 69 hits, 12 doubles and three triples. He was named an organization All-Star in three consecutive seasons (2012-14) and earned Mid-Season All-Star honors in the South Atlantic League (2011), Carolina League (2012) and Eastern League (2013). Baseball America named him a High Class-A All-Star in 2013 as well. Kelly was originally selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 13th round of the 2009 amateur draft.
