Casey Kelly was the centerpiece of the Adrian Gonzalez deal. Well, Gonzaelz was, but Kelly was the most notable guy coming to San Diego.  This morning Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that Kelly is going to be capped at 150 innings this year.

Makes sense, given that he’s logged only 190 professional innings across two seasons.  It may be a bit of a bummer for Padres fans who had hoped to see some of the return for Gonazalez playing on the big club this year.

    Even from that one little picture, it’s easy to see why this guy has been a favorite of scouts. He’s just got perfect, classic mechanics. Good look up some video of the kid, it’s impressive.

    Maybe they’ll see Rizzo.
