Kelly is in the midst of his junior season at the University of Portland, where he has been a solid starter every year.The 6-0, 205 lb. infielder, who bats and throws right-handed, was especially sharp in 2017. Starting all 52 games, he led the Pilots with a .292 batting average, three triples, 28 runs scored, and 23 stolen bases. The West Linn, Oregon native has been solid this season as well, starting all but one game and batting .271.
Kelly will be a key part of the middle infield for the SwampDogs this summer. The team's quest for the Petitt Cup begins May 29 at J.P. Riddle Stadium.
