Kelly was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Designated for assignment earlier in the week, Kelly has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 36-year-old will likely play out the rest of the year as organizational depth in the minors now that he's off the 40-man roster.

Kelly was designated for assignment Thursday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins needed to clear a spot for Dee Gordon, who finished serving his 80-game PED suspension, and Kelly was the victim. He should pass through waivers and head to Triple-A to serve as organizational infield depth.

Kelly went 3-for-5 with two triples, two RBI and two runs in Wednesday's blowout victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran made the most of his spot start Wednesday, notching more hits than he's had combined in all of this season and last. Kelly is providing depth at corner infield for the Marlins while Justin Bour (ankle) is on the DL, but with Bour slated to return soon, the 36-year-old is headed back to the minors in the coming days. He may be worth a punt play in daily leagues if he draws another start before being optioned.

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

EDGE Analysis

Kelly will get a start in a matchup against Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson (3.84 ERA). The 36-year-old is hitting an abysmal .053/.095/.053 through 10 games with the Marlins this season.

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.
