  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Removed from roster

    Kennedy was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday. Kennedy played fairly frequently over the last few weeks, but he owns just a .225 batting average and .627 OPS at the big-league level, so he was removed from the roster to open up a spot for fellow infielder Emmanuel Rivera. Kennedy will not actually report to Reno, as he will remain with the Diamondbacks as part of the team's taxi squad.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Joins Saturday's lineup

    Kennedy was added to the lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta. Kennedy is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh Saturday after David Peralta was traded to the Rays. Kennedy has gone 2-for-5 with a walk and two strikeouts over two games since the All-Star break.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Delivers run with triple

    Kennedy went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Padres. Kennedy delivered the Diamondbacks' first run with a triple in the fourth inning, his first RBI in nine games. He's been getting steady playing time at second base while Ketel Marte deals with a lingering hamstring injury that's limited him to designated-hitter duty, but that run could end soon. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo indicated earlier this week that the team has a plan in place for Marte to get back to playing the field, a process that should begin in earnest following the All-Star break. Kennedy is batting .250 (13-for-52) with two doubles, one triple, eight RBI and six runs scored over the last 19 games as the Diamondbacks' primary second baseman.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Losing work to Alcantara

    Kennedy is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants. Kennedy is on the bench for third time in five games and may have moved into a timeshare with Sergio Alcantara, who gets another start at the keystone. Both players may soon see their opportunities at second base dwindle, as manager Torey Lovullo recently said that he expects to break Ketel Marte back in at the position at least once before the All-Star break. Marte has been serving exclusively as a designated hitter since returning to the lineup June 21 after he missed a few games due to a Grade 1 hamstring strain.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Heads to bench Sunday

    Kennedy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies. After going 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Rockies, Kennedy will take a seat for the series finale. Though he's on the bench for the second time in three games, Kennedy still looks like the Diamondbacks' preferred option at the keystone over Sergio Alcantara, who draws the start at the position Sunday.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Riding pine Friday

    Kennedy isn't in the lineup Friday against the Rockies. Kennedy recorded hits in four of the last five games and went 6-for-18 with a double, three RBI and three runs during that time. Sergio Alcantara will take over at the keystone and bat eighth Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Drives in two in win

    Kennedy went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 8-3 win over San Francisco. Kennedy's first-inning single plated two runners and tied the game after the Giants grabbed a lead in the top of the frame. While the Diamondbacks play it safe with Ketel Marte -- he's served as the designated hitter since sustaining a hamstring injury two weeks ago -- Kennedy has become the primary second baseman, making eight consecutive starts. Since joining Arizona mid-June, Kennedy has driven in 10 runs over 14 games.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Continues at 2B

    Kennedy made a fifth consecutive start at second base Friday and went 0-for-4 in a 9-3 win over the Rockies. Kennedy is the beneficiary of the Diamondbacks keeping Ketel Marte at designated hitter as the club's usual starter at second base works his way back from a hamstring strain. With Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reporting that Marte will remain DH through the current series against Colorado, Kennedy is in line for at least two more starts at second base. He's batting .152 over 11 games since having his contract selected.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Involved in comeback win

    Kennedy went 1-for-3 with a double, three RBI and a hit-by-pitch in Tuesday's 7-6 win over San Diego. Kennedy drove in two runs during Arizona's four-run seventh inning and knocked in another when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth. He was an integral component to the Diamondbacks erasing a six-run deficit with seven runs over the final three innings. Kennedy continues to get starts at second base while Ketel Marte works his way back from a hamstring injury that's limited him to designated-hitter duty.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Scores run in return

    Kennedy (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Tigers. Kennedy missed two games with left wrist discomfort, but he was able to play a full game at second base Saturday. He has a home run, four RBI, four runs scored and a triple through 22 plate appearances in his first seven big-league games. Kennedy should continue to compete with Jake Hager for playing time at second base until Ketel Marte, who is serving as the designated hitter while recovering from a hamstring injury, is ready to return to the field.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Back in action Saturday

    Kennedy (wrist) is starting Saturday against the Tigers. Kennedy was out of the lineup in the last two games due to left wrist discomfort, but he appeared as a pinch hitter Friday and went 0-for-1 with a strikeout. He's starting at second base and batting sixth Saturday.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Remains out of lineup

    Kennedy (wrist) isn't in the lineup Friday against the Tigers. Kennedy has been dealing with left wrist discomfort since Tuesday and will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. Jake Hager is starting at second base while Ketel Marte serves as the designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Exits with wrist injury

    Kennedy was removed from Tuesday's game against the Padres with left wrist discomfort. Kennedy appeared to tweak something when he struck out swinging during the top of fourth inning, and he was replaced in the field for the bottom of the frame. The severity of the 23-year-old's wrist injury remains unclear, and he should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Clobbers grand slam for first homer

    Kennedy went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Twins. Kennedy blew things wide open for the Diamondbacks, notching their fourth home run of the game in the sixth inning, and the only one that wasn't a solo shot. He's now 3-for-10 with a triple, a homer, four RBI and three runs scored in his first three major-league games. Considering he batted .296/.384/429 in 54 contests with Triple-A Reno before his promotion, it's not surprising to see Kennedy continue to hit well. His playing time is likely to take a hit soon, as Ketel Marte (hamstring) is due to return during a three-game series in San Diego that starts Monday.

  • Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Contract selected by Arizona

    Kennedy's contract was selected from Triple-A Reno on Friday. He is starting at designated hitter and batting sixth against the Twins. A bat-first prospect, Kennedy slashed .340/.427/.472 with two home runs, three triples and seven doubles while striking out at a 19.3 percent clip and walking 14 percent of the time over his last 39 games at Triple-A. Jake McCarthy was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. As a right-handed hitter, it's possible Kennedy will be limited to mostly short-side platoon work, and he is starting against a southpaw (Devin Smeltzer) in his big-league debut.
