Most Recent Player News

Kansas City Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed a lone run on two hits over seven strong innings in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Kennedy tossed five hitless innings before a Carlos Gomez single in the sixth broke up his very early bid for a no-no. Jose Altuve later made sure Kennedy wouldn't even get a shutout for his efforts, ripping a solo shot over the wall for the Astros' only run. Kennedy punched out seven while walking two in the start.

It's early, but he's certainly made the Royals look smart for bringing him in this past offseason. Kennedy is 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 14 strikeouts through 13 2/3 innings. Another test will come Wednesday when the Royals take on the Detroit Tigers in his next start. We project Kennedy to record a 4.10 ERA and 24.4 strikeout percentage in 2016.
