Carson Kelly appeared in 63 Games over three years for the St. Louis Cardinals before he was traded before the 2019 Season the Arizona where the Catcher had an increased role.

Kelly earned the lion’s share behind the plate in 2019 and 2020, handling staffs well, with solid defense.  While Kelly did not have a great bat, he did have 17 Home Runs in 2019.  Kelly missed a lot of 2021 due to injury, but returned in 2022, again playing more Games at Catcher than any other Diamondback, and had a perfect Fielding Percentage.

Kelly might not erupt into a great Major League hitter, but he is still a Diamondback and can easily climb this list.
