Kelly is in the lineup and batting seventh for Monday's game against the Phillies, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly will get the start at first base in a tough matchup against right-handed ace Jose Fernandez. The 36-year-old is just a .229 career hitter and has only played in eight major league games since the start of 2015, but he will likely see starts against right-handed starters while Justin Bour is on the disabled list.

Kelly had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. He will start at first base and bat seventh in the order for the afternoon matchup against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly has been with the Marlins on a minor league deal since the beginning of the regular season, posting a .561 OPS through 48 games for the Zephyrs. He'll provide Miami with corner infield depth in the short term, as Justin Bour (ankle) was placed on the DL on Wednesday in a corresponding move.

Kelly re-signed with the Marlins on a minor league deal Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a solid spring, Kelly was released by the Marlins on Tuesday, but signed with the team Wednesday on a minor league deal. He could surface on the team if a rash of injuries strike, but he's likely to be infield organizational depth.

Kelly has been granted his release, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A non-roster invitee to spring training, Kelly had just six hits (all single) over 24 at-bats in the Grapefruit League. He made a quick recovery from Tommy John surgery in July, and he may end up re-signing with the Marlins on a minor league contact.

Kelly signed a minor league contract with the Marlins on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly signed with the Marlins last season, but was limited to one at bat in the majors due to a broken finger and then Tommy John surgery. If he's healthy for spring training, he'll likely compete for a reserve role as a utility player, thanks to his experience in playing almost every position on the field.

Kelly was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Fox Sports Florida reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kelly won't play anymore this season anyway, so the move was procedural to open up a 40-man roster spot for the selection of Raudel Lazo's contract Wednesday. Given the severity of Kelly's tear, there's even question surrounding whether he will return for 2016 or not.

Kelly will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday to look at a "significant tear" in his right elbow, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

It sounds like this injury, coupled with Kelly's fractured ring finger, will end his season before it even really began. It's possible the 35-year-old's playing career might be drawing to a close.

Kelly (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports.

Kelly was primarily a reserve player for the Marlins, but a fractured ring finger will land him on the disabled list for the foreseeable future. Reid Brignac was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move, and should take over the role of backup infielder in Kelly's stead.

Kelly fractured the fourth finger on his right hand in Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Kelly was the first of two Marlins to suffer a fractured finger Sunday. He's mainly a bench player for the Marlins, but the injury will likely send him to the disabled list and cause the Marlins to make recall another player for that role.

Kelly's contract was selected by the Marlins on Sunday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

Kelly was already considered a lock for an Opening Day roster spot, so this announcement merely makes it official. Regular playing time may be tough to come by for Kelly, but he'll provide the Marlins with an extra left-handed bat off the bench.
