Ian Kennedy unlucky to still be winless

Ian Kennedy went seven strong innings Saturday, surrendering one run on four hits and three walks while striking out three in a no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy pushed his ERA down to the low 2.00s and his WHIP to 1.04 with this start, but still does not have a win due to the Royals' continued hitting struggles. You will reap the rewards of owning Kennedy once the Royals can find their groove.

Ian Kennedy goes eight strong innings in no-decision

Ian Kennedy pitched eight scoreless innings against the Angels on Sunday, giving up just two hits and two walks while striking out 10. Unfortunately, the Royals gave him no run support, and he did not factor into the decision. The Royals eventually won the game, 1-0.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy is 0-2 but owns a sterling 2.37 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 19 strikeouts in 19 innings pitched. Most encouraging, Kennedy has allowed just one home run so far this season, a rate of just 0.47 home runs per nine, a huge improvement over his career rate of 1.17. If he can continue to limit the long-balls, he should be in line for an excellent season.

Ian Kennedy fans 10

Ian Kennedy struck out 10 Blue Jay batters in six innings on Thursday, allowing two runs on four hits in a no-decision. Kennedy has 29 strikeouts in his last three starts, seeing his strikeouts per nine jump to 9.3 for the season. He has a 6-7 record and 3.97 ERA in 2016 and will not pitch again before the All-Star break.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy had lost four of six games coming into Wednesday's start, so a strong performance was needed for fantasy starts. If Kennedy can continue to rack up the strikeouts while posting above average starts, he is a suitable SP4.
