Player Profile

Shawn Kelley

by Scooter Hotz


Player Background

Shawn Kelley was drafted in the 13th round by the Mariners in 2007 out of Austin Peay State University. He threw 15 innings in relief that summer for Seattle, striking out 18 batters and walking four. He kept striking guys out in the minors in 2008, reaching Double-A by the end of the season before making the big team out of Spring Training to start the 2009 season.

After making his debut, Kelley spent the entirety of the 2009 season in the majors in Seattle aside from a stint on the DL with an oblique injury and a few minor-league rehab appearances. In 2010, he suffered an elbow injury, pitching through it for a few appearances before undergoing Tommy John surgery in late 2010. It was his second Tommy John surgery, his first coming as an amateur during his freshman year at Austin Peay. He made it back onto a major-league mound by September 2011, but he didn’t break camp with the Mariners in 2012. He ended up bouncing between the minors and the majors all season.
