Kelly impresses in Padres Minor League debut

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Pitcher Casey Kelly, the prized prospect the Padres received from the Red Sox in the Adrian Gonzalez deal, tossed four scoreless innings on Sunday in his Minor League debut this spring.

Kelly allowed four hits in four innings, and had two strikeouts and didn't walk a batter in a game played against the Royals' Double-A team in Surprise.

Kelly impressed Padres manager Bud Black and his staff during his time in Major League camp this spring, tossing five scoreless innings over three appearances.
