Report: Royals, Pirates, Marlins in on Ian Kennedy


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.


Ian Kennedy set to start Saturday after being skipped


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) 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.

Yankees showing interest in Ian Kennedy


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) 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
(7/23/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy struggled with his control 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. Kennedy pitched out of trouble a number of times, and only paid for his control problems in the fourth inning. After putting two hitters on via the walk, Kennedy gave up a three-run homer. He would settle down after that and toss two more scoreless innings.

With the win, Kennedy improved to 8-9 on the year. His next start will come against the Braves.

Report: Angels not a match for Ian Kennedy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) The Padres and Angels "do not match up" in a possible deal for Padres starter Ian Kennedy, reports Fox Sports. However, the Padres are "hearing out" other teams interested in Kennedy, the report said.

Kennedy, 29, is 7-9 with a 3.47 ERA in 20 starts.


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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy will be on the hill for the second-half opener Friday against the Mets, the team announced Sunday. Tyson Ross will pitch Saturday and Odrisamer Despaigne will finish off the three-game series next Sunday.

Over his last three starts covering 21 innings, Kennedy has allowed only two earned runs. He enters the All-Star break with a 3.47 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 20 starts (124 1/3 innings). His next start will come after the break, though the Padres have yet to announce their pitching plans moving forward.

Ian Kennedy pitches six one-run innings in win vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) 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
(6/26/2014) 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
(6/15/2014) Padres starter Ian Kennedy (5-8) dropped his second straight decision Sunday, allowing three runs on seven hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings against the Mets. Kennedy yielded a pair of first-inning runs on Curtis Granderson's homer and Bobby Abreu's run-scoring double.

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


Ian Kennedy struggles in loss to Phillies


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy was riding a three-game winning streak heading into Tuesday's game against the Phillies, but stumbled en route to a 5-2 loss.

Kennedy, who had allowed just four runs during his winning streak, was tagged for five this time around. He surrendered those five runs on seven hits in seven innings of work, while he struck out just three batters and walked none on 106 pitches.

Kennedy was working his way back to .500 thanks to the streak, but fell to 5-7 with this loss. His ERA rose to 3.63 with the loss, and he will try to get back on track in his next outing, set for Sunday against the Mets. 


Ian Kennedy strikes out seven in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ian Kennedy allows one run in second-straight win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Ian Kennedy struggles late in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy struggled for the second outing in a row Tuesday, in a 5-3 loss to the Twins.

Kennedy made it through six innings with a lead, but was unable to make it stand up. He allowed one run in each of the second, third, sixth and seventh innings, ultimately finishing with runs allowed in 6 2/3 innings of work. He allowed six hits and a pair of walks, while striking out six.

Kennedy is just 2-6 on the season, with a 3.79 ERA in 10 starts. He has not recorded a win in any of his last four starts, and will try to turn things around Sunday against the Cubs. 


Ian Kennedy takes back seat to Reds ace in Thursday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) One run surrendered would have meant a loss for Padres starter Ian Kennedy against the Reds on Thursday. He gave up five instead.

Kennedy pitched six innings in lowering his record to 2-5. He walked one and fanned four.

All was well for the first four innings, but an indication that he could not keep up with Cincinnati ace Johnny Cueto came with baserunners in each of those frames. A three-run homer by Brandon Phillips in the fifth and three straight hits in the sixth doomed him to defeat.

Kennedy is scheduled to start again early next week at home against Minnesota.


Reds, Padres rained out Wednesday; DH coming Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Wednesday's game between the Padres and Reds has been postponed due to rain, and will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday, the clubs announced.

Wednesday's expected starters, Ian Kennedy and Johnny Cueto will likely take the mound Thursday instead.
