Ian Kennedy only lasts three innings Friday

Ian Kennedy only made it through three innings Friday, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out two in the outing, and his record dropped to 4-11. He ended up leaving the game with shoulder tightness, which is not surprising given his second half landslide.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy is not rosterable in any format at this stage. His 5.45 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 115 strikeouts in 138 2/3 innings will tell fantasy owners that. Stay away.

Ian Kennedy mediocre again on Sunday

Ian Kennedy lasted 5 2/3 innings Sunday against the Twins, scattering two earned runs on five hits and a walk. He only struck out one. The Royals offense bailed him out in what turned out to be a 5-4 win.

Fantasy Impact

It was good to see Kennedy pitch into the sixth inning, but you expect more from any starter that you deploy in fantasy. He has an 8.36 ERA and 1.79 WHIP in the past month. With very modest strikeout totals in that same span (21 in 28 innings) the best thing you can do is stay away.

Ian Kennedy awful on Monday

Ian Kennedy struggled mightily against the Rays on Monday, surrendering seven runs on six hits and two walks over 2 2/3 innings. Most of the damage was done by Lucas Duda and Wilson Ramos homers. The Royals lost 12-0.

Fantasy Impact

This is truly a lost season for Kennedy. With an ERA north of 5, a 1.34 WHIP, and only 112 strikeouts in 130 innings pitched, Kennedy is simply not worthy of being owned in any format.

Ian Kennedy continues to be average

Ian Kennedy only lasted 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Rockies. He scattered seven hits and three walks, which turned into three runs. He did strike out six on the day. The Royals would win on a walk off homer by Eric Hosmer.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy is not streamable in any facet right now. He has had a prolonged stretch of poor results. On the year, Kennedy has a 5.09 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 111 Ks in 127 1/3 innings.

Ian Kennedy continues to struggle

Ian Kennedy only lasted 2 2/3 innings Friday, getting dinged for five runs on six hits and two walks. Two of those hits were home runs, and he only struck out one batter. His record drops to 4-9.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy has been awful lately, and keeps trending in the wrong direction. His season has not gotten off the ground ever since he went on the DL early in the season. He now has a 5.06 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 105 strikeouts in 122 2/3 innings pitched.
