WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Philadelphia Phillies have claimed pitcher Trevor Kelley off waivers from the Boston Red Sox.
The Ashley High School graduate had a strong season with the Red Sox at Triple A in 2019. He had a 1.79 ERA, and allowed just 51 hits in 65.3 innings while striking out 63.
The 26-year-old gave up eight earned runs, nine hits and five walks and struck out six in 8 innings for the Red Sox.
Kelley still has minor-league options remaining so he can be sent to Triple A if he doesn’t make the big club.
Kelley was a 36th round pick of the Red Sox out of North Carolina in 2015.
