WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY)–Former Ashley High School baseball standout Trevor Kelley made his MLB debut this past summer for the Boston Red Sox. Now, he will spend the 2020 season with a new organization.

The 26 year-old right hander was claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday afternoon. He joins a pitching staff that gave up nearly five runs per game in 2019.

Kelley had a great year in Triple-A last season for Pawtucket. He pitched in 52 games finishing with a 1.79 ERA. The sidearmer still has a few minor league options remaining, meaning the Phillies could rotate him next season between Triple-A and the major leagues.

Kelley was drafted in the 36th round by the Red Sox back in 2015 out of the University of North Carolina.
