Padres | Ian Kennedy snaps losing streak

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 04:34:30 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy had his four-game losing streak snapped when the Padres downed the New York Mets, 7-2, on Tuesday, June 2. Kennedy had allowed 20 runs and 24 hits, including seven homers, over 19 1/3 innings for a 9.31 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) broke out in an impressive way, but what was even more impressive was it came against the Mets and pitcher Noah Syndergaard. The numbers still don't weigh in Kennedy's favor for the price, however.

Padres | Ian Kennedy rocked by longball

Thu, 28 May 2015 23:39:28 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy has allowed seven home runs and 20 earned runs in his last four starts combined.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has definitely struggled in recent outings, which should alarm you enough to leave the Padres pitcher on your bench for now. Certain matchups may be intriguing, but he is giving up too much for Kennedy to make a difference in your lineup.

Padres | Ian Kennedy loses third straight

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:50:09 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy lost for the third consecutive start Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kennedy held the Dodgers to two runs off six hits and zero walks through six innings, but he didn't get any run support. Kennedy struck out six hitters.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) rebounded from rough starts in his last two outings, in which he allowed a combined 11 earned runs. Kennedy's strikeout rates have risen since his first two appearances of the season, and he can be considered for GPP tournaments Thursday, April 28, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Padres | Ian Kennedy helps avoid broom

Wed, 06 May 2015 21:40:42 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy allowed one earned run, six hits and no walks over seven innings with five strikeouts Wednesday, May 6, against the San Francisco Giants, helping the Padres to avoid the sweep.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy got off to a rocky start, going 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA in two April outings, but he is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in two outings in the month of May. At $5,900 (or 11.8% of cap) he is a solid FantasyScore option.

Padres | Ian Kennedy to start Saturday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:53:33 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will come off the disabled list to start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) wasn't dealing with a serious hamstring ailment, so he should be good to use for FantasyScore users Saturday. However, you may want to avoid him in his first start back against one of the better overall teams in the league. Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will move back to a long relief role out of the bullpen, and that kills his short-term fantasy appeal in standard leagues.

Padres | Ian Kennedy looks good

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 20:31:16 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw 81 pitches over six innings in an extended spring training appearance Monday, April 20. Manager Bud Black was happy with the result. "He looked good, (threw) all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple of runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring."

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list April 25. FantasyScore owners will want to wait to see him officially return and pitch a full game without any setbacks before trusting him at $5,600 (or 11.2% of the cap).

Padres | Ian Kennedy tosses six innings

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:56:43 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw 81 pitches through six innings during his extended spring training start Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, it would appear Kennedy ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is set to return to the rotation sooner than later. It might be wise to avoid him in his first start back from the disabled list while he works out any kinks. He has great upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, though, and especially at home in pitcher-friendly PETCO Park.

Padres | Ian Kennedy throws another 'pen session

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:05:52 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw another bullpen session Friday, April 17, without issues. He'll throw 75-90 pitches in an appearance at extended spring training Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: At that pitch count, Kennedy should be stretched out enough to return barring setbacks. At $5,600 (11.2% of your cap), Kennedy is one of those second starters on FantasyScore that can deliver SP1 production.

Padres | Ian Kennedy's rehab schedule

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:14:01 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will pitch a bullpen session Wednesday, April 15, and Friday, April 17. Then he will pitch in a minor league game Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Kennedy in all formats. He is a nice source of strikeouts, and he pitches in a favorably home environment. Make sure to check back for updates on his recovery and an official announcement on when he'll rejoin the rotation. Given it isn't an arm injury, there is less risk returning Kennedy to your lineups immediately upon his return, too.

Padres | Ian Kennedy placed on DL

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:31:51 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list Friday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: As expected, Kennedy lands on the DL, but fantasy owners can be thankful it isn't an arm injury. He should be stashed in the majority of leagues. Daily players will want to keep tabs on Odrisamer Despaigne ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) who should fill in during Kennedy's absence. In favorable matchups, Despaigne should be on your radar for usage in FantasyScore contests.
