The San Diego Padres are hopeful SP Ian Kennedy will be able to regain his 2011 form, when he won 21 games and finished fourth in the National League Cy Young voting as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Pitching coach Darren Balsley has watched video of both 2011, and the current season. "I've watched a lot of video (from this season), and it had been more thigh-high this year," Balsley said Monday, Aug. 12.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have reached an agreement to trade SP Ian Kennedy to the San Diego Padres for RP Joe Thatcher, P Matt Stites and a compensatory B draft pick.
Fantasy Tip: This may reignite Kennedy's mixed-league value, assuming the deal goes through. Stites is a power arm who, according to Brock in another tweet, just had an appendectomy and will be fine. The diminutive righty has put up excellent numbers in the minors thus far and may be under the radar.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Ian Kennedy is close to being traded to the San Diego Padres. Arizona would reportedly receive RP Joe Thatcher, P Matt Stites and a third player in the deal.
Fantasy Tip: Sounds like a deal involving Kennedy is imminent. A change of scenery would be good for the right-hander, given his struggles this year, and a move to Petco Park can't hurt. He may regain some mixed-league value.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Ian Kennedy has been suspended for 10 games for intentionally throwing a pitch at the head area of Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke in the bottom of the seventh inning of the game on Tuesday, June 11, after both clubs had been issued a warning.
Fantasy Tip: This is the biggest penalty handed down by MLB. Kennedy would seem likely to miss only one start as long as the Snakes are creative with their rotation and schedule, and they have options to do so.
