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: Scheduled to return from DL this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals manager Ned Yost said Kennedy (oblique) would make his final rehab start at Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Monday before being reinstated from the 10-day disabled list later in the week, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Kennedy, who hasn't pitched for the big club since July 10 while battling a left oblique strain, began his rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha last week, tossing 3.2 innings and giving up three runs. He tossed 60 pitches in that outing, so the Royals will likely have the right-hander bump his count up to the 70-to-80-pitch range Monday before determining how he'll fit in with the big club in September. Yost suggested over the weekend that he's leaning toward using a six-man rotation during the final month of the season, so Kennedy could be an option to fill one of the openings as soon as Saturday against the Twins.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Lasts 3.2 innings in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (oblique) covered 3.2 innings Wednesday in his rehab start for Triple-A Omaha and gave up three runs on four hits and a walk and struck out two.

Kennedy tossed 60 pitches (39) strikes in the outing, his first at any level since July 10 before he hit the disabled list with a left oblique strain. Given his workload Wednesday, Kennedy will likely require one more start in the minors to build up his pitch count before slotting back into the Kansas City rotation. Over his 18 starts in the big leagues this season, Kennedy has accrued a 5.13 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 87:34 K:BB in 94.2 innings.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Throws another sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy threw a simulated game in Arizona on Tuesday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.

Kennedy is currently rehabbing from a strained left oblique at the team's spring training facilities. Tuesday marked his second simulated outing in the last week, bringing him one step closer to embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Faces extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (oblique) said Friday that "it could be quite awhile" before he returns to the mound for the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Flanagan interpreted Kennedy's statements to mean that he is weeks away from being activated, which would likely sideline the right-hander until the middle of August. Kennedy didn't imply that there was any sort of setback, just that the strained oblique will take longer to heal than previously anticipated. Look for a definitive timetable to arise once he's able to resume baseball activities in the near future.
