Latest News

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Could have start moved to Sunday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/22/17) Kennedy is with his family following the birth of his son, but could pitch Sunday if he rejoins the team in time, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

At this point in time, Sam Gaviglio is scheduled to take the mound Sunday, while Kennedy is expected to pitch Monday. Regardless of whether or not Kennedy rejoins the team early enough to move his start to Sunday, he's fully expected to be ready to go by Monday. If Kennedy does end up pitching Sunday, the Royals would send Jake Junis to the hill Monday. More news regarding the situation should be available Saturday.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Tough-luck loser Tuesday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/19/17) Kennedy (4-12) took the loss Tuesday in Toronto despite allowing only two runs on three hits while striking out two without a walk over five-plus innings.

Kennedy cruised through five innings, but was pulled without getting an out in the sixth after allowing Darwin Barney to break a scoreless tie with a two-run homer. He was skipped over last time through the rotation due to shoulder fatigue, and that extra rest definitely helped the veteran righty's control as he didn't issue a free pass for the first time in 28 starts this season. Assuming Kennedy makes his next scheduled start Monday, he'll have a tough time repeating this effort at Yankee Stadium.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Starting Tuesday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/19/17) Kennedy (shoulder) will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals skipped Kennedy the last time through the rotation to combat shoulder fatigue, but he will step back in Tuesday, pushing Sam Gaviglio to Sunday. Kennedy's strikeout and walk rates have both gone in the wrong direction this season -- his 5.67 FIP is exactly one full run higher than his mark from a year ago. He has a negative fWAR through 27 starts.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Won't start Wednesday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/11/17) Kennedy is dealing with shoulder fatigue and won't start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Eric Skoglund is expected to start Wednesday in Kennedy's place. Kennedy struggled in his last start, as he pitched just three innings and allowed three runs on four hits and three walks. Although Kennedy is battling shoulder fatigue, the Royals expect that skipping his current turn in the rotation should give him enough time to sort out the issue, so he should be available moving forward. After throwing 138.2 innings over 27 games this season, Kennedy owns a 5.45 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Lasts just three innings against Twins

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/9/17) Kennedy (4-11) lasted just three innings and allowed three runs on four hits and three walks with two strikeouts to take the loss Friday against the Twins.

Confidence in Kennedy seems to be running thin in Kansas City. This marks the third time in his past five starts that Kennedy has failed to go deeper than three innings, and he hasn't completed the sixth inning since June 28 against Detroit. Expect Kennedy's leash to be short for the rest of the season. His ERA is up to a bloated 5.45.
