One player that was part of the AGon trade did not make the cut for the Futures roster. P Casey Kelly was a big piece of the trade, but didn’t make the cut. He was beat out by Darnell and Fuentes for the roster spots. He has a good future for the team and has been doing a good job in Double-A San Antonio also.

Here are Kelly’s career minor league numbers:
