by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ian Kennedy still feeling effects of oblique ailment


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The left oblique strain that forced Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy to miss one start continued to plague him a bit Friday night against Pittsburgh.

"That last little part doesn't go away," he told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "Today, I let a little more balls go than in the last start, but I think the first start after missing a start was the big hurdle. I felt a little better, but it's still not 100 percent."

Kennedy pitched well enough to win, but was outperformed by Vance Worley.


Ian Kennedy strikes out five in loss vs. Pirates Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kennedy (8-10) gave up both runs in the first inning to fall behind 2-1. It looked like it would be a rough outing after he loaded the bases with no outs in the third, but the starter was able to get a strikeout and a double play to escape unscatched.

He's scheduled to face the Rockies Wednesday.


Padres considering making changes to rotation alignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Padres manager Bud Black said Sunday he's considering altering the order of the team's rotation following a two-game series at Minnesota, per MLB.com. Black said he is considering a change because starting pitcher Ian Kennedy was reluctant to let loose on his fastball in his first start back from a mild oblique strain Saturday.

Black said he will make his final decision after watching Kennedy throw a side session in Minnesota. Black could choose to skip over Eric Stults in favor of starting Kennedy for Friday's series opener against the Pirates.

"We'll look through when we get to Minnesota … whether Ian needs another day or two based on his side session [in between starts]," Black said. "He'll throw a side in Minnesota and we'll gauge where he is. We'll see where him and Tyson Ross and Stultzie line up when we get to Minnesota and see how that relates to the Pittsburgh series."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy wasn't a factor into the decision in his first start back from the disabled list Saturday night at home against the Braves. The right-hander permitted one run on two hits and five walks while striking out seven over five innings of work.

Over his last five starts covering 32 innings, Kennedy has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 3.59 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 23 starts (140 1/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Royals, Pirates and Marlins are among the teams in the mix to acquire Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy, FOXSports.com reports.

The Padres are leaning towards hanging on to the talented starting pitcher, but the opportunity is there for one of the interested teams to bowl them over with an offer. He is 8-9 with a 3.66 ERA and 143:42 K:BB ratio in 135 1/3 innings over 22 starts.


Padres leaning toward keeping Ian Kennedy


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) 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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.

Padres need to be overwhelmed to trade Ian Kennedy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) 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 picks up a win Wednesday against the Cubs

Kennedy pitched fairly well despite those issues. He gave up three runs on three hits over six innings. Kennedy struck out six and walked five. He threw 101 pitches during the outing.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Angels showing interest in a pair of Padres players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) After watching AL West rival Oakland acquire Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs, the Angels are hoping to make some moves of their own leading up to the July 31 trade deadline. Two players on the team's radar are Padres closer Huston Street and starting pitcher Ian Kennedy, major-league sources told FOX Sports.

The Angels and Padres have discussed a trade for Street, but their talks have yet to progress to Kennedy. Though, a deal including both players might be difficult because Street and Kennedy are under team control through 2015.

The sources added the Padres are "lukewarm" about trading Kennedy.

No worries about Ian Kennedy yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) 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
(6/25/2014) 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
(6/21/2014) 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 shaky again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

His ERA having crept up to 3.72, Kennedy will face the Dodgers on Friday.
