DON KELLY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ausmus pleasantly surprised with Don Kelly's play

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Don Kelly is hitting the ball with authority. Kelly, who figures to platoon in left field with Rajai Davis for the Detroit Tigers, is fifth among Grapefruit League batting leaders with a .391 average. He's tied for fourth with both a .652 slugging percentage and .464 on-base percentage after 15 games. "I just feel great at the plate," said Kelly. ...

Opportunity knocks for Don Kelly

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Opportunity is knocking for Don Kelly, and the likable Detroit Tigers utility player could be ready to take advantage of it. Kelly is the most seasoned option to replace Andy Dirks if Detroit manager Brad Ausmus doesn't end up going strictly with right-handed hitter Rajai Davis and shelving the platoon system. Kelly bats left-handed just like Dirks, who is...

Don Kelly caught with his pants down

Don Kelly's legend has grown. You might say that his legend as a Tiger is a grower not a show-er. Don(g) Kelly and his private parts were captured on camera in the clubby after the Detroit Tigers got swept by the Los Angeles Angels.

Tigers’ Don Kelly’s bare ass and junk caught on camera

Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was doing an interview and being asked to preview the Tigers series against the Tampa Bay Rays and apparently no one took notice of what was going on in the background.  Don Kelly was taking off his towel and getting ready to get dressed and the camera picked up his bare ass and penis on camera.  I’m sure this won’t be on YouTube...

Don Kelly can't be stopped (lately)

New rule: If Rod Allen says a team can't stop Don Kelly, drink a keg. But Don Kelly really is en fuego. He's hitting 7-for-15 with runners in scoring position (2-for-6 in those situations with two outs), according to Jason Beck. He's 5-for-7 in his last 9 plate appearances with five RBI, including that game winning three-run dinger on Sunday. That's almost quite...

Tigers' Kelly robs Blue Jays of a home run

DETROIT Don Kelly probably wasn't even supposed to start Tuesday's game but he ended up making the play of the game. Hot-hitting Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia led off the second inning and absolutely smoked one of Anibal Sanchez's pitches. It was headed out of the park -- until Kelly leaped and brought it back in. "I didn't know how far it was going to...

Kelly playing himself back on Tigers roster

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. Decisions are coming soon and it would not be a shock if Don Kelly was a Detroit Tiger once again. Kelly came into Sunday's game against the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie in the bottom of the fifth, replacing Prince Fielder at first base.

Detroit Tigers: the bench battle
