|Ian Kennedy takes step back in second spring start |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy, who fired two scoreless innings in his spring debut, took a step back on Thursday against the Rangers.
Kennedy gave up a run-scoring single to Prince Fielder and allowed Elvis Andrus to score on a balk in the opening frame. He permitted two runs on three hits and no walks while striking out three through three innings of work. He has allowed two runs over his first five innings this spring.
|Ian Kennedy looks in control in opener |

(3/1/14) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy looked solid in his spring debut Saturday, tossing a pair of clean innings against the Royals.
Kennedy was efficient and in control, finishing his two innings of work with just 26 pitches, 20 of them thrown for strikes. He struck out two batters and walked one, while allowing one hit, a double.
Kennedy struggled with his control a year ago, walking a career-high 73 batters in 181 1/3 innings of work, so it will be interesting to see if he can find the strike zone in the spring.
|Padres avoid arbitration with three players |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(1/17/14) The Padres avoided arbitration with shortstop Everth Cabrera, and pitchers Tyson Ross and Ian Kennedy on Thursday. All three signed one-year deals.
Kennedy, who was in his second year of arbitration eligibility, will earn $6.1 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. He went 7-10 with a 4.91 ERA over 181 1/3 innings of work.
Cabrera, also in his second year of arbitration eligibility, will receive $2.45 million, the New York Post reports. He was limited to only 95 games after serving a 50-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. He stole 37 bases and owned a .283/.355/.381 slash over 381 at-bats in 2013.
In his first year of arbitration eligibility, Ross is expected to earn $1.98 million, FOX Sports reports. He went 3-8 with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 125 innings of work last season.
|Ian Kennedy's control is back |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/26/13) With a strong performance in his season finale Wednesday, Ian Kennedy finished an otherwise disappointing season on a high note for the Padres . Though Kennedy's ERA over his five September starts was a pedestrian 3.90, his latest start against the Diamondbacks was part of a positive trend.
Kennedy walked only one Arizona batter, marking the fifth straight start in which he walked no more than two hitters. He also threw at least 64 percent of his pitches for strikes in each game and compiled a cumulative 67 percent rate over those starts. That's in contrast to a 3.9 BB/9 ratio and 63 percent strikes-thrown rate compiled through the end of August.
Fantasy owners still have to be worried about Kennedy's propensity to allow extra-base hits, even in PETCO Park, but with better control, he has a chance to recapture his status as a viable starter in standard mixed leagues. Despite his poor 2013 numbers, Kennedy is still worth a late-round flyer in the hopes that his late-season resurgence will carry over into 2014.
|Ian Kennedy goes out on top |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/13) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy finished the season on a positive note Wednesday, in a 12-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Kennedy limited the Diamondbacks to just two runs over seven innings of work, making up for a six-run outing in his last meeting with them. Kennedy allowed six hits and a walk, while striking out seven batters en route to the win.
Kennedy finishes the season 7-10 with a 4.91 ERA, easily the worst of his career over a sizable sample. Kennedy tossed 181 1/3 innings in 31 starts, with 163 strikeouts and 73 walks allowed. He is locked into the Padres rotation heading into next season.

Fielder stays hot; Rangers beat Padres 8-4
PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Prince Fielder kept up his hot spring training start by lining an RBI single in a two-run first inning and then doubling in the Texas Rangers' 8-4 victory over the San Diego Padres on Thursday.
|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.
