Ian Kennedy allows one run in return from IL

After being activated from the 10-day injured list just hours earlier, Rangers closer Ian Kennedy was called on to pitch the ninth inning against the Astros. Houston was leading by a score of 7-4, so the decision to use Kennedy was likely just to get him some live game work following his injury. Ultimately, the 36-year-old allowed one run on two hits, including a solo homer. He also struck out once Houston batter.

Fantasy Impact

Through 22 games this year, Kennedy dons a 2.82 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and .220 OBA. He's also amassed 12 saves while striking out 26 batters and walking just two.

Ian Kennedy (hamstring) placed on 10-day IL

The Rangers placed closer Ian Kennedy (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy hasn't pitched since Friday. The team is calling it a "mild" hamstring strain, so there's hope that he can return within the next week or so. The move has been made retroactive to June 6th. It's unclear if manager Chris Woodward will use just one pitcher for saves in his absence, but there isn't an obvious pickup if this actually winds up being a short absence.

Ian Kennedy dealing with hamstring tightness

Rangers closer Ian Kennedy was reportedly unavailable on Tuesday night due to hamstring tightness.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear how long the issue has been bothering him, but Kennedy hasn't pitched since last Friday. The fact that he still isn't on the injured list is a good sign, but this is an injury to monitor over the next few days. As of now it doesn't sound serious at all.

Ian Kennedy notches save despite allowing two runs

Tasked with pitching the ninth inning of a 5-2 game on Friday, Rangers reliever Ian Kennedy did not take the quick route to victory. Instead, he allowed two runs on two hits and a pair of walks, bringing the Rays within one.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy has posted 21 outings this year with 12 saves, a 2.53 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and .208 OBA. The 36-year-old right-hander has shown no signs of slowing down and remains a key bullpen option for most fantasy formats.
