|Padres leaning toward keeping Ian Kennedy |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/28/14) The Padres are leaning toward keeping pitcher Ian Kennedy, according to the New York Post.
The club flirted with the idea of dealing Kennedy, but didn't get the offer it was looking for. Kennedy will miss his Monday start due to a minor oblique injury, which means he won't start again before the trade deadline. The team seems unconcerned about this because it was leaning toward keeping Kennedy and revisiting the situation during the offseason.
Kennedy has a 3.66 ERA over 135 1/3 innings.

(7/28/14) What was expected has been confirmed - Ian Kennedy will start for the Padres on Saturday against visiting Atlanta. He was scratched Monday against the same team with left oblique soreness.
Kennedy can only hope the time off doesn't derail his momentum. He is 3-0 in his last five outings with four quality starts and nine runs allowed in 32 innings.

(7/27/14) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy was scratched from his start Monday against the Braves due to left oblique soreness. However, no stint on the disabled list will be required.
|Yankees showing interest in Ian Kennedy |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/14) The Yankees have shown interest in Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Despite the interest, no deal is imminent. The Yankees are said to be interested in acquiring a starting pitcher, so the club naturally has interest in Kennedy. The one-time Yankees prospect has flourished in San Diego this season, posting a 3.66 ERA over 135 1/3 innings.
|Padres need to be overwhelmed to trade Ian Kennedy |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) The Padres have told some teams that they would need to be overwhelmed to trade pitcher Ian Kennedy, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
The Padres have already dealt Chase Headley and Huston Street, but they are looking for a substantial return in order to part with Kennedy or Joaquin Benoit. The Yankees are one of the teams reportedly interested in the Kennedy, though the Padres could decide to hang on to the starter. He owns a 3.62 ERA and 137:37 K:BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings.
|Ian Kennedy kicked off last season as the Diamondbacks' ace, but he would finish the season as a member of the Padres' pitching staff. Kennedy was having a pretty brutal season for the Diamondbacks, going 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 21 starts before being traded to San Diego for a minor-league pitcher and a left-handed reliever. It shows how quickly Kennedy declined since he was dealt to San Diego for a bargain-bottom price after he won 21 games in 2011 and 15 games in 2012. Kennedy didn't improve much for San Diego, going 4-2 with a 4.24 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 10 starts. Kennedy's decline centered around command problems. He walked 3.6 batters per nine innings last season, which increased from 2.2 in 2011 and 2.4 in 2012, and he had a 63 percent strike rate, which declined from 67 percent in 2011 and 66 percent in 2012. There's potential for Kennedy to bounce back in 2014, but he's nothing more than a late-round pick in mixed leagues.
