PHILADELPHIA– The Phillies have begun adding to the team’s bullpen.

The team has claimed P Trevor Kelley off of waivers from the Boston Red Sox.

Kelley, 26, spent the majority of 2019 at the Triple-A level, where he pitched to a 1.79 ERA over 65.1 innings.

However, he did not carry that same success to the big leagues, struggling in 10 appearances with the Red Sox.

Over those 8.1 innings, Kelley pitched to a 8.64 ERA.

Now, the Phillies will hope he can translate his minor league success to the Major League level.
