...by the Mariners. Pretty decent numbers over the past 3 seasons. NH needs to move on him.

Nice catch Frobel, Kelley is a good RH reliever who throws 93 range and is still only 28. He'd be a nice add in place of a guy like Mazzaro.

Not a bad idea. But remember, the Pirates have a bunch of arms in AAA and AA that could play well out of the 'pen. For example, Bryan Morris should be joining the PBC this April, and Duke Welker should be throwing cheese for the big club later this season or in 2014 at the latest.

That said, dumping Mazzaro for Kelley would be fine by me.

I have high hopes for Bryan Morris. Even if he's a lesser version of Mo Rivera, I'd be tickled. Has a cutter like Mo does...

The M's are fairly deep in arms, so they're not exactly 'low' on Kelley.

Despite Jack Z's questionable valuing of players, in any hypothetical trade, the M's would probably be aware of Kelleys value and he'd be worth a decent player in return.

Considering the Bucs depth in arms it would be a decent enough addition, though arguably unnecessary excess.
