Summary:A star from the 2002 Little League World Series, Kelly learned early on what it was like to pitch on the big stage. Since then, he's developed a good three-pitch mix, though he struggles with commanding it. He's not the biggest guy in the world, but he is extremely athletic and has a good arm. In a light year in Texas, Kelly could have the chance to be one of the early players from the state to go off the board, if the Boras advisee's demands aren't too high.
