Royals' Ian Kennedy: Claims fifth win in final start of 2017

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/30/17) Kennedy moved to 5-13 for the season after tossing five innings of one-run ball in the Royals' 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday. Kennedy conceded four hits and one walk and struck out seven.

Kennedy was cruising along nicely through five frames, but due to the team's expanded bullpen in September, manager Ned Yost elected to pull the starter with his pitch count at 86 for the evening. It's nonetheless a strong end to what's been a troubling season for Kennedy, who had failed to win in his last 18 home starts, which was a franchise record. Kennedy will finish the campaign with a 5.38 ERA, his worst mark in any season of his career in which he's tossed at least 40 innings. A 5.65 FIP suggests that Kennedy's poor ERA wasn't merely a case of bad luck, as he also saw his strikeout rate dip below 8.0 K/9 for the first time since 2010. It looks quite possible that Kennedy could be settling into the decline phase of his career, a troubling development for the Royals with the 32-year-old right-hander still under contract for three more seasons.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Disappoints in Sunday loss

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/24/17) Kennedy (4-13) took the loss Sunday against the White Sox after allowing five runs on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings.

After producing a strong outing on extended rest last time out, Kennedy returned to subpar form in this one. He surrendered long balls to Avisail Garcia and Kevan Smith while seeing his ERA balloon to 5.50. That mark is unlikely to come down in Kennedy's final start Saturday against Arizona.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Will start Sunday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(9/23/17) Kennedy will arrive in Chicago on Saturday and is expected to start Sunday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Kennedy was away from the Royals to attend the birth of his son, but he's expected to rejoin the team in time to make his next start a day ahead of schedule. With Kennedy's start moving up a day, Jake Junis will now start Monday's makeup game against the Yankees. The 32-year-old owns an unremarkable 5.29 ERA and 117:58 K:BB over 143.2 innings this season.

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.
