 Kansas City Royals closer Ian Kennedy was charged with three earned runs in a 6-4 Cactus League win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Notes 
 Kennedy was an afterthought on draft day last year, but a run of save chances in the middle of the summer boosted him to 30 saves. His peripherals didn't hurt fantasy owners and his strikeout numbers were solid, making Kennedy the poster child for the "wait on saves" crowd. In the final year of his deal, he'll again open as the closer for the Royals, but his chances of being dealt mid-season are extremely high. Draft him, of course, but don't bank on much more than 15 saves or so.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It would be interesting to see what Gray could do on a team other than the Rockies, but at least we pretty much know what he'll do in Colorado. Pitch to around a 4.00-4.50 ERA, have a WHIP in the 1.35 range, and strike out a batter per inning. Forget about the magical growth we keep waiting for. Draft him at this numbers, which work in an NL-only or deeper mixed league.
