|Ian Kennedy Ks nine for the win in Colorado |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy struck out nine and earned his second straight win Monday night against the Rockies in Colorado. The right-hander yielded only one run on four hits and two walks over seven innings of a 6-1 victory.
Kennedy owns a 3.71 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 19 starts (116 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
|Ian Kennedy pitches six one-run innings in win vs. Reds |

(7/2/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits and one walk in six innings and striking out five in his team's 8-2 victory over the Reds.
Kennedy (6-9) was 0-3 in his last four starts before coming through with his best performance in more than a month Tuesday, surrendering only an RBI single in the fifth inning. He owns a 3.87 ERA and 116:28 K:BB ratio in 109 1/3 innings. Kennedy is scheduled to face the Rockies in Colorado Monday.
|No worries about Ian Kennedy yet |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/26/14) Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy has struggled in his last four starts, compiling a 6.08 ERA, which might have some Fantasy owners wondering if their diamond in the rough has become a thorn in their side.
I don't see it -- and I don't just mean the physical transformation of a diamond into a thorn, but also the idea that Kennedy is somehow a liability in Fantasy.
His problem during his disastrous 2013 -- a season split between the Diamondbacks and Padres -- was twofold: too many walks and too many home runs. In only one of those four starts were walks an issue, and he allowed just two home runs between them. In other words, everything that went right for Kennedy in his first 13 starts is still going right now ... except for luck. His 2.92 FIP (as compared to his 4.01 ERA) would seem to support this.
His luck will turn, his hits will level off, and he'll go back to being a strikeout-per-inning-type innings-eater -- the kind that can factor in Fantasy even when he's lacking run support.
Yeah, I'm not sure his win-loss record is getting any better pitching for the Padres.
|Ian Kennedy on wrong side of no-hitter Wednesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/25/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy stumbled to his third straight loss Wednesday, as he ended up on the wrong side of a no-hitter in a 4-0 loss to the Giants.
Kennedy pitched into the seventh inning with a quality start, but the Giants jumped on him late to put the game out of reach. He allowed four runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings, while walking one batter. He struck out eight batters on 117 pitches, while falling to 5-9 on the season.
Kennedy has not won over his last four starts, going 0-3 with a 6.08 ERA in that span. His ERA has spiked to 4.01, a number he will try to lower when he takes on the Reds Tuesday.
|Ian Kennedy bailed by late rally |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/21/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy failed to record a quality start for the second straight trip to the mound Friday, in a 6-5 win over the Dodgers.
Kennedy did not earn the win in the start, as he left the game after having allowed five runs in five innings of work. Four of those runs were charged to Kennedy, who also allowed seven hits and a pair of walks. He struck out five batters on 109 pitches, before being bailed out by the offense late in a no-decision.
Kennedy remains just 5-8 on the season, and is winless in his last three starts. He has a 3.90 ERA heading into his next start, set for Wednesday in San Francisco.
|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.
