Rockies' Charlie Blackmon returns to leadoff spot Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon was back at the top of the order Saturday night against the Padres.
Blackmon sat out Friday against Padres starter Ian Kennedy. DJ LeMahieu, who batted leadoff on Friday, was bumped to the No. 8 in the order.
Blackmon is hitting .290/.330/.432 with two homers and 11 RBI over 21 games.
Colorado is an underdog (+125) Petco Park, per VegasInsider.com.
Padres SP Ian Kennedy earns win during Friday's game
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed two runs on four hits over six innings of work during Friday's 14-3 win over the Rockies. Kennedy received his first win of the season for his effort.
Kennedy's mistakes occurred when he gave up a solo home run to Drew Stubbs in the fifth and another solo shot to Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning. He struck out a season-high six batters and walked two during the outing.
Friday's start was the first time Kennedy was able to pitch past the fifth inning this season. He was also able to lower his ERA from 10.80 to 7.11.
His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at San Francisco.
Padres RHP Ian Kennedy mashed in return from injury
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Perhaps Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy should get a mulligan for his disastrous start Saturday against the Dodgers. After all, it was his first outing after recovering from a hamstring injury.
Kennedy was clobbered for eight earned runs on eight hits, including three homers, in 4 1/3 innings. He walked one and fanned two.
The Dodgers teed off from the start as Andre Ethier socked a two-run blast and Carl Crawford added a run-scoring double in the first inning. A three-run tater by Adrian Gonzalez in the second gave Los Angeles a 6-3 lead. Kennedy also surrendered a two-run homer to Howie Kendrick in the fifth before his merciful removal.
He will have his first shot at redemption Friday against visiting Colorado.
Padres send LHP Frank Garces to Triple-A
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/25/15) With pitcher Ian Kennedy coming off the disabled list to start on Saturday, the Padres made room by sending left-hander Frank Garces to Triple-A, reports MLB.com.|
In six relief appearances this season, Garces has allowed three runs in 14.2 innings (1.84 ERA).
Kennedy to start Saturday; Despaigne out of Padres' rotation
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) It's official. Bud Black has announced that Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy is set to start Saturday against the Dodgers, per the U-T San Diego. Odrisamer Despaigne is headed back to the bullpen.
Kennedy has been on the disabled list since April 10 with a hamstring injury. Despaigne performed admirably in his place, winning two starts while yielding just three runs in 13 2/3 innings.
"We feel good about Ian's hamstring," Black said. "Out of spring training and through the winter time, we're counting on Ian to be one of the anchors in our rotation. This was a little bit of a hiccup ... but he'll resume his spot in the rotation.
"Obviously, we'll watch the game and see how he does, but he doesn't have any restrictions."
|2014 summary: Ian Kennedy's first full season with the Padres went much better than the partial season he spent with them in 2013. The former Diamondback and Yankee ironed out his control issues and kept the ball in the park, helping him to post his lowest ERA (3.63) and WHIP (1.29) in three seasons. Kennedy also picked up his strikeout pace, and for the first time, he exceeded 200 strikeouts with a total of 207. |
Playing time status: Kennedy has been the subject of trade rumors, but whether in San Diego or elsewhere, he should figure prominently in a major league rotation.
2015 outlook: A pessimist could view Kennedy as inconsistent, but a more optimistic perspective is that he finally put some puzzle pieces together in 2014. Given that several indicators -- velocity, average flyball distance, strikes thrown percentage -- are all pointing strongly in the right direction, owners can have confidence that Kennedy's performance was not only legitimate, but that it could possibly get even better. He can be penciled in as a top 40 starter and a mid-round target in standard mixed league drafts.
