Royals' Ian Kennedy: Tosses six innings in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (3-9) suffered the loss against the Indians on Friday, allowing four earned runs, six hits and one walk over six-plus innings. He struck out two.

Kennedy pitched well until the seventh frame when he was pulled after allowing the first three batters to reach base. All three runners would eventually come around to score, as the Indians ended up plating a whopping 10 runs in the inning. Kennedy ended his streak of three consecutive quality starts in the process, and assuming Friday was his last appearance, he'll finish the 2018 season with a 4.66 ERA and 105 strikeouts over 119.2 innings.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Turns in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (2-8) allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Twins.

Kennedy turned in his second consecutive strong outing since returning from the disabled list. Saturday's start was highlighted by his ability to find the strike zone as he began 21 of the 26 batters he faced with a strike and threw 70 percent of his pitches for strikes. While Kennedy still isn't dominating with punchouts, he has allowed only two earned runs in 12 innings since coming back from the disabled list.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Strikes out six in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (oblique) allowed one run on four hits and three walks across six innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Twins. He struck out six.

Kennedy looked sharp in his first outing in nearly two months, throwing 68 percent of pitches for strikes while throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of 24 hitters. He allowed a run on three hits in the second inning but was able to limit baserunners the rest of the way for his first quality start since June 23. Kennedy lowered his season ERA to 4.92 with this outing and will look to deliver more of the same this weekend against the Twins.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Making first start of second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (oblique) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and will start Sunday's game against the Twins, Jarrid Denney of MLB.com reports.

Kennedy, who has been sidelined since July 10 with a strained left oblique, is expected to join what will likely be a six-man rotation for Kansas City down the stretch. The right-hander was roughed up in both of his minor-league rehab outings Aug. 29 and Sept. 3 and owns a 5.13 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 18 starts with the big club this season, making it difficult to be bullish on his prospects as he returns from the DL.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: In line for start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (oblique) is expected to return from the 10-day DL on Sunday and start the series finale in Minnesota, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

Kennedy will rejoin the big-league roster after pitching in a second minor-league game with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Monday. This will mark his first start in the majors since July 10, during which he re-aggravated a previous oblique injury that forced him to go on the DL in late June. Moving forward, Yost said that the club will stick with a six-man rotation, so that should help to give Kennedy a little extra rest in between starts.
