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.

Ian Kennedy hit hard against the Cardinals

Ian Kennedy allowed seven runs (six earned) over six innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Monday. He gave up six hits and walked four while striking out five.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy's WHIP (1.23) and strikeout rate (97 in 113 2/3 innings) are generally helpful to fantasy owners, but his bloated 4.83 ERA and four wins greatly outweigh any minimal benefit he provides. While he's nothing more than a streaming option, he does take on the punchless White Sox in his next start, so can be used if you're desperate.

Ian Kennedy not on his game Tuesday

Ian Kennedy only lasted four innings Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk. He struck out two in the outing, and his record dropped to 4-7.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy has not done too well over the past three starts, compiling a 6.43 ERA and 1.57 WHIP, and just 10 strikeouts in 14 innings. He will take on the Mariners this weekend in an important series for the Royals. Kennedy is simply a streaming option right now and nothing more.

Ian Kennedy helped out by Royals bats Wednesday

Ian Kennedy was solid in his start Wednesday against Detroit, and was helped out big by time Royals bats as they exploded for 16 runs. Meanwhile, Kennedy pitched six innings and allowed one run in what was a quality start. This was his fourth win on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy had an awful start last time against the White Sox, so it was good to see him bounce back by only giving up three hits and striking out four. Kennedy now has a 4.43 ERA and 1.17 WHIP to go along with 90 strikeouts.

Ian Kennedy roughed up by the White Sox

Ian Kennedy allowed six runs (five earned) over four innings on Friday against the White Sox. He gave up six hits and walked two while striking out four. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy hadn't given up more than three earned runs in any start since early June, so his dud against the White Sox was certainly a surprise. He has just a 1.19 WHIP and 86 strikeouts in 97 2/3 innings, so he certainly has some value in deeper leagues. He'll take on the Tigers in his next start.
