  • Kennedy was placed on the 15-day injured list Monday with right calf inflammation. It was thought that Kennedy was dealing only with cramping in his leg, but it turns out he is dealing with an injury that will sideline him at least through the All-Star break. Mark Melancon will be the favorite to close if the Diamondbacks find themselves needing to protect a late lead during Kennedy's absence.

  • Kennedy thinks that he's dealing with a leg cramp after exiting Sunday's game against the Rockies, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports. Kennedy said that he felt his leg grab on three pitches Sunday, and he was ultimately removed from the game by a trainer. The right-hander is hopeful that he's simply dealing with a cramp stemming from the altitude in Colorado, but he'll be further evaluated Monday.

  • Kennedy exited Sunday's game against the Rockies in the bottom of the eighth inning due to an apparent right knee injury, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. Kennedy forced a flyout to begin the bottom of the eighth inning, but he was visited by a trainer who appeared to be looking at his right knee. While the nature and severity of the issue aren't yet clear, the right-hander was replaced by Noe Ramirez following the visit by the trainer.

  • Kennedy saved Thursday's game, but Mark Melancon remains Arizona's closer, the Arizona Republic reports. Melancon asked to get some work in because he hadn't pitched since last Saturday. With Arizona on the road and trailing 3-1 heading into the eighth inning, there was no guarantee anybody would be pitching for the Diamondbacks in the ninth, so manager Torey Lovullo brought in Melancon. After Arizona plated four runs in the top of the ninth and grabbed a two-run lead, Kennedy was summoned to close out the game. There is no change in Arizona's closing situation.

  • Kennedy allowed a solo home run but earned the save Thursday against the Reds. Kennedy entered the game in the ninth inning and was tasked with protecting a two-run lead. He allowed a home run with two outs, but he still successfully nailed down his fourth save of the season. It's unclear if Kennedy has completely overtaken Mark Melancon for the closer role, but it appears as if he is in line to earn at least some additional saves moving forward.
