Royals' Ian Kennedy: Pitch-count causes early exit in win over Seattle

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/1/16) Kennedy earned his third win of the season Sunday against Seattle, allowing just one run with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings.

Kennedy was knocked around in his previous start, but he bounced back and was effective Sunday, although his elevated pitch-count truncated what could have been an even better outing. The Red Beard still has an excellent 2.61 ERA and a useful 8.4 K/9 rate on the season, and he will look to keep it rolling Saturday versus Cleveland.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Takes loss against Angels

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/26/16) Kennedy (2-2) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks over six innings in Monday's loss to the Angels.

Kennedy had a great 21:5 K:BB before walking four against just two strikeouts in Monday's rough outing. He induced just six swinging strikes in 108 pitches. Kennedy got touched up for a pair of home runs as well after allowing just one in his first three starts. Still, he owns a sharp 2.77 ERA and 1.12 WHIP thus far.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Suffers first loss of season despite strong outing

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/20/16) Kennedy (2-1) took the loss against Detroit on Wednesday despite allowing just two runs while striking out seven over 6.1 innings. He gave up six hits and two walks.

Neither Royals fans nor fantasy owners were terribly excited about the five-year, $70 million contract that Kennedy signed this offseason, but he's off to a shining start to the year. The veteran righty's recorded exactly seven strikeouts in all three of his starts while allowing only 13 hits and three runs in 20 innings. No, he's not suddenly a star on the mound, but the early returns suggest Kennedy could be in for his finest campaign since 2011.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Fans seven in win

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/15/16) Kennedy picked up his second win of the season Thursday, throwing seven innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts against two walks. His lone earned run came on a Jose Altuve home run in the seventh inning.

Kennedy picked up where he left off from his first start, striking out seven batters and keeping base runners to a minimum. As is the norm with the Royals, excellent defense, most notably a phenomenal catch by Alcides Escobar, helped Kennedy's cause Thursday. Although it is very early in the season, Kennedy is pitching much more like 2014 form (3.63 ERA, 13 wins) than his 2015 vintage (4.28 ERA, 9-15 record). A combination of solid defense, good run support, and improved overall performance makes Kennedy a candidate for a bounce back year in 2016. He's scheduled take the ball next on Wednesday when the Royals host the Tigers.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Will start Saturday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(4/9/16) Kennedy (hamstring) has been confirmed as Saturday's starter against the Twins, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Kennedy's hamstring pull towards the end of spring training delayed his first start of the season, pushing him from Game 2 on Tuesday back to Saturday's matchup with the Twins. He'll have the fortune of not having to face the likes of Miguel Sano or Byron Buxton, but Minnesota manager will try to exploit Kennedy by using several left-handed bats in the lineup Saturday.
