Kelley either with Rangers in ‘20 or retires

ARLINGTON—The Rangers have a $2.5 million option on veteran reliever Shawn Kelley. He is hoping they will pick it up.

If not, Kelley said he will retire.

“If they pick me up, I would love to come back and do another year,” Kelley said. “If not, I will drift off to the sunset. I’ll either play here next year or retire.”

Kelley is finishing his 11th season and has pitched in 486 games. He has worked through a variety of injuries, including two Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgeries. He went on the injured list twice this season, once for a bacterial infection in his throat that required surgery to have benign lumps removed.

I hope that Kelley’s goal is to retire, because, if it isn’t, this feels like something that could backfire fairly badly…..
