Kelly gets shelled in Arizona Fall League start

10.26.10 at 2:00 am ET

Top Red Sox prospect Casey Kelly was hit hard in his Monday outing in the Arizona Fall League, allowing eight runs on eight hits in just two innings of work for the Peoria Javelinas. Kelly struck out two, walked one and allowed a homer. Kelly threw 46 pitches, 28 for strikes.

The outing represented a dramatic departure for Kelly, who had excelled in his first two AFL outings. Prior to Monday, he’d allowed three runs (one earned) in nine innings while allowing six hits, walking two and striking out six.

Despite the tough outing, Kelly sounded an upbeat note on his twitter page.

“Its games like these that make you a better player. Adversity is a great thing really shows what kinda player you are,” he wrote.

Kelly is expected to throw 15-20 innings in the AFL in order to make up the innings that he missed at the end of his season with Double-A Portland due to a strained lat muscle.
