There’s a chance Joe Kelly returns to the Dodgers in 2022, but we may have seen him throw his last pitch in a Dodgers uniform.
On Saturday, the Dodgers decided not to pick up his option for next season. Instead, they’ll pay him a buyout of $4 million. With Kelly’s tenure in Los Angeles potentially coming to an end, I thought it’d be interesting to see what fans thought of his stint with the Dodgers.
Overall, Kelly appeared in 115 games for LA. He posted a 3.59 ERA, 116 ERA+, 3.46 FIP, 1.22 WHIP and had a 10.3 SO/9 rate. Not awful numbers, but you can debate whether or not they were worth his contract.
Kelly had his poor moments along with a number of injuries, but he certainly provided fans with many memorable moments.
In case he’s done in Dodger blue, do you think that he was worth the contract?
Do you think Joe Kelly’s contract was a success?
