Ian Kennedy can't make it out of the fifth inning Wednesday

Ian Kennedy allowed four runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Red Sox. He struck out four and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't the worst start against a tough lineup, but Kennedy just can't seem to get anything going. While his WHIP certainly doesn't hurt you (1.22), his inflated ERA (4.95) and sub-par strikeout rate (7.6/9) just doesn't help much. He'll look to get on track against the Tigers in his next start.

Ian Kennedy allows four runs on Saturday

Ian Kennedy allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over six innings of work on Saturday against the Padres. He struck out five and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Although a Royals rally saved Kennedy from beginning the season 0-7, this was a fairly disappointing start nonetheless, as it came against a weak offense in an NL park. Kennedy has now allowed at least four earned runs in six consecutive starts, and has shown no signs of being a reliable pitcher. He'll take on the Angels next week, but he should probably remain on your bench for now.

Ian Kennedy fails to get back on track in loss to Astros

Ian Kennedy ran into the red-hot Astros on Monday, allowing four runs in five innings of work. He scattered six hits and three walks to go with four strikeouts. His record fell to 0-6 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy has had a rough time getting back into the groove following his stint to the DL a few weeks ago. It didn't help matters that the Astros are the hottest team in baseball right now. Hopefully Kennedy will have an easier time out in his next turn against the Padres. Kennedy's ERA is now up to 5.33 with 44 Ks in 50 2/3 innings, and he also has a 1.28 WHIP.

Ian Kennedy continues to struggle in loss to Tigers

Ian Kennedy only pitched three innings Wednesday against the Tigers. He allowed five runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out four. His record fell to 0-5.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy has been dreadful in each of his three starts since returning from the DL two weeks ago. Kennedy's stat line is now 45 2/3 innings pitched, 40 strikeouts, a 5.12 ERA (which has essentially doubled since he was activated from the DL), and a 1.23 WHIP. Kennedy is not worth rostering until he can turn it around and maintain consistency.

Ian Kennedy rusty again

Ian Kennedy is still struggling after being activated from the DL two starts ago. He pitched five innings, surrendering four runs on three hits and two walks. He also struck out four batters.

Fantasy Impact

Kennedy's ERA has ballooned to 4.43 over these past two starts, and he has not had a win yet. He has struck out 36 batters in 42 2/3 innings, and has a decent 1.15 WHIP. His 5.12 xFIP shows that Kennedy may have had a lot of luck in the early going, as his ERA was sub-3 prior to going on the DL. Owners should definitely consider dropping Kennedy until he can turn it around.
