Manager Ned Yost confirmed that Kennedy (hamstring) will start Saturday's game against the Twins, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

As expected, Kennedy will be activated off the DL to start Saturday opposite pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia. Yost also commented that Kennedy will have his start pushed to Sunday if Saturday's contest is rained out, so his activation seems inevitable no matter what the weather has in store.
