Profile: The Mets signed Ty Kelly as a Minor League Free Agent in November 2015, and he quickly ascended to one of the best hitters in their farm system. He is a gap to gap line drive hitter with doubles power, great contact, and very good batting average and on base ability. In the minors he had more walks than strikeouts, a trait that has carried over into his small, 71 plate appearance, Major League career. Ty Kelly is the king of versatility, playing every position except catcher and pitcher and batting as a switch hitter with no clear platoon splits. With all of this said, he remains a backup utility player, sitting beneath Wilmer Flores and T.J. Rivera on the depth chart. He is not a home run hitter or a base stealer, but his batting average and on base ability should translate at the major league level, at least during short stints as a utility man. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: Ty Kelly is a utility player that holds more strategic versatility for a manager than he will in any fantasy league.
