|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|

Report: Padres listening to trade offers on Kennedy, Cashner, Ross
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) The Padres continue to listen to trade offers on their top starting pitchers -- Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner -- as they look to upgrade their offense, according to FOX Sports.
All three players are under team control through at least 2015. Kennedy can be a free agent after next season, Cashner will be a free agent after the 2016 season and Ross won't be a free agent until after 2017.
Kennedy and Ross tied for a team-high 13 wins in 2014. Ross had a 2.81 ERA and Kennedy had a 3.63 ERA. Cashner went 5-7 with a 2.55 ERA in 19 starts.
Ian Kennedy surpasses 200-200 mark in final start
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy ended his season on a high note Friday night in San Francisco, improving to 13-13 on the year. The right-hander permitted one unearned run on four hits and no walks while striking out six over seven innings of a 4-1 victory. Of his 95 pitches, 67 were strikes.
In his penultimate start he eclipsed the 200-strikeout mark, and on Friday Kennedy amassed 200-plus innings, becoming the ninth pitcher this season to reach that mark. He finishes the season with a 3.63 ERA and 207 strikeouts in 201 innings.
Ian Kennedy hits milestone with Padres
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/21/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy fanned five in an 8-2 victory over the Giants on Sunday, giving him a career-high 201 strikeouts and making him just the fourth San Diego pitcher to fan 200 in a season. Kennedy allowed two runs on five hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings as he improved to 12-13.
Kennedy, who has a 3.76 ERA, will face the Giants again Friday in San Francisco.
Ian Kennedy strikes out seven in win vs. Phillies
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy earned a win Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on three hits and four walks in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 5-4 victory over the Padres.
Kennedy (11-13) gave up a solo home run in the second inning and fell behind on a two-run blast in the fifth, but the offense was able to pick him up with three runs in the sixth. It was Kennedy's first time allowing multiple home runs in a start this season. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 196:67 K:BB ratio in 187 1/3 innings. Kennedy is slated to face the Giants Sunday.
|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.
