Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy has recorded a 4.65 ERA, a 1.60 WHIP and a 41/23 K/BB over 38 2/3 innings since the All-Star break.
Insight: The strikeouts are nice, but the rest isn't. Kennedy allowed 11 baserunners (8 H, 3 BB) and three runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday at Arizona but still got the win. The right-hander is 10-11 with a 3.75 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and 174 Ks in 163 innings this season.
 
8/8/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy dropped a 2-1 decision for his 10th loss of the season Friday against the Pirates.
Insight: Kennedy (8-10, 3.51 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) allowed just one earned run (two total) on seven hits in six innings. The 29-year-old has struck out 9.53 batters per nine innings this year, which is the 11th best K/9 in the majors among qualified pitchers this season.

Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy will miss his start on Monday due to left oblique soreness, but he won't go on the disabled list yet. SOURCE: Dennis Lin, San Diego Union-Tribune
Insight: The injury likely assures that Kennedy will still be with the Padres after the trade deadline, which is good news for fantasy owners. He's been very good for San Diego this year, going 8-9 with a 3.66 ERA and 143 Ks in 135 1/3 innings.
 
Hot6/4/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy won his third straight start and fifth game of the year Wednesday against the Pirates. The 29-year-old struck out seven and allowed two runs on five hits over six innings.
Insight: Kennedy has quietly had a bounce-back season in San Diego, going 5-6 with a 3.39 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and an impressive 88/20 K/BB in 79 2/3 innings. His resurgence hasn't just been fueled by Petco Park, either. In fact, he's been much better on the road (3-1, 2.61 ERA) than at home (2-5, 3.70 ERA).
 
5/25/2014 9:04:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy won his third game of the year Sunday against the Cubs.
Insight: Kennedy gave up two hits and one run while striking out six in six innings. He's reverted to his 2011 form this season and has a 3.59 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP and a 72/16 K/BB in 67 2/3 innings.
 
Hot4/27/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy is 2-3 with a 3.16 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP in 37 innings this season.
Insight: Walks and homers were the two biggest issues Kennedy dealt with last year, but he has walked just eight batters and allowed two home runs so far while fanning 37 hitters. Surprisingly, he has been much better on the road than at Petco Park.
 
8/21/2013 9:54:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy threw his best start of the season Wednesday against Pittsburgh, going seven scoreless innings and striking out eight.
Insight: Kennedy is 2-1 with a 3.20 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP in four starts since joining the Padres after going 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA with Arizona.
 
8/11/2013 8:02:00 PM
Description: Padres starter Ian Kennedy held the Reds to two runs on three hits Sunday at the Great American Ballpark.
Insight: Unfortunately, he didn't get much run support and Cincinnati eventually won 3-2 in extra innings. Kennedy is 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA since joining San Diego at the trade deadline.
 
7/31/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the deal sending Ian Kennedy to the San Diego Padres appears to be completed.
Insight: The Diamondbacks will receive lefty reliever Joe Thatcher, Double-A prospect Matt Stites and another prospect for Kennedy, who is 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP this season. The right-hander has a 2.27 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP in 35 2/3 career innings at Petco Park, but he also had the luxury of facing the Padres in those starts. He needs to prove he still can get outs consistently before fantasy owners go near him.
 
6/29/2013 10:29:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy walked four and gave up four runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings Saturday at Atlanta.
Insight: Kennedy was making his return from a 10-game suspension. The righty has been horrible this year, going 3-4 with a 5.36 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. He's been bad both on the road and at home too, so you can't even pick your spots if you own him. It's time to move on.
 
6/28/2013 11:10:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy served his 10-game suspension and is available to start on Saturday.
Insight: Kennedy is 3-4 with a 5.21 ERA and 1.31 WHIP, though his last two outings before the suspension were decent six inning efforts.
 
6/18/2013 9:31:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy dropped the appeal of his 10-game suspension and began serving it Monday.
Insight: Kennedy was able to start Sunday at San Diego and might only have to miss one start due to the suspension because Arizona has two off days over the next seven days.
 
6/14/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: Arizona righthander Ian Kennedy has been suspended for 10 games due to his role in Tuesday night's bench clearing brawl against the Dodgers.
Insight: Dodgers righthander Zack Greinke plunked Miguel Montero after Kennedy threw at rookie Yasiel Puig and hit him in the face. Kennedy responded by nailing Greinke near the head in the next half inning, which led to the benches clearing. Kennedy figures to appeal the suspension until after his next start and thus will only cost fantasy owners one start.
 
6/12/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: Arizona righthander Ian Kennedy will probably be suspended for his role in Tuesday night's bench clearing brawl against the Dodgers.
Insight: Dodgers righthander Zack Greinke plunked Miguel Montero after Kennedy threw at rookie Yasiel Puig and hit him in the face. Kennedy responded by nailing Greinke in the head in the next half inning, which led to the benches clearing. Kennedy, Puig and three coaches were ejected. We should know the length of Kennedy's suspension sometime in the next 24 hours.
 
6/6/2013 10:45:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy gave up 13 hits and 10 earned runs in four innings Thursday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Kennedy is now 3-4 with a 5.72 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. It's hard to believe he won 21 games with a 2.88 ERA just two seasons ago.
 
5/30/2013 2:24:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy (finger) will make his next start Saturday against the Cubs, according to MLB.com.
Insight: Kennedy was scratched from Monday's start after suffering a lacerated right index finger while washing the dishes at home.
 
5/26/2013 4:07:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy will miss is schedule start on Monday due to a cut on his right index finger which happened while he was doing the dishes, according to beat writer Nick Piecoro.
Insight: He's got a solid excuse to never do the dishes again. We're still waiting for the Kennedy of 2011 (21-4, 2.88 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) to make an appearance. Hopefully he'll be able to start by Friday.
 
5/15/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy picked up his second win of the season despite lasting just five innings Wednesday against the Braves.
Insight: Kennedy gave up three runs on five hits and walked three, but Arizona scored five runs off opposing starter Tim Hudson. The right-hander has a 44/23 K/BB and a 4.88 ERA in 55 1/3 innings.
 
1/18/2013 6:31:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy received a one-year, $4.265M contract to avoid arbitration.
Insight: Kennedy sharply regressed last season but still won 15 games. His ERA jumped from 2.88 to 4.02 and his WHIP from 1.09 to 1.30.
 
6/17/2012 7:00:00 PM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy tossed his second career complete game Sunday in a losing effort against the Angels. Kennedy held Los Angeles to two runs on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts in eight innings.
Insight: Kennedy (5-7, 4.13) was knocked around in his last start at Texas (5 1/3, 10 H, 6 ER, 4 K) but he was solid in the two starts prior to that (13 2/3, 10 H, 1 ER, 19 K) so he appears to be headed in the right direction.
