Don Kelly to Marlins + Scherzer is gone too

Don Kelly has signed with the Miami Marlins on a minor-league contract. Over the last six years, Kelly served the Tigers as a super-utility player. He played every position at least once, including catcher and even pitcher. Kelly is known for coming up in the clutch or just coming in to pitch when we are getting smoked by the Mets. Here are some of his greatest moments with the Tigers:

  • Don Kelly gets the last out of the 9th inning
    • DK was called on to spare another relief pitcher in a 16-9 loss to the New York Mets. Kelly got the last batter to pop-up to end the game, using an effective changeup to battle to a 2-2 count.

  • Walk-off sacrifice fly in the playoffs against Oakland
    • It was pretty awesome.
  • He can use his glove, too
  • Solo home run in Game 5 of the World Series against the ALCS: 

Max Scherzer has signed a 7 year, $210 million mega-deal to pitch for the Washington Nationals. What a relief! He would have added so much money to our payroll. Now the Tigers can sign a couple players for the same price as Scherzer -- signing maybe David Price or a more average starter next year. Trading for Price last year was so he could replace Max's spot as the ace. Justin Verlander should bounce back this year as well.
