Most Recent Player News

Kansas City Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy was charged with two runs over 3 1/3 innings and took a no-decision in Monday's 10-4 win over the Minnesota Twins.

What It Means:

Kennedy gave up five hits, walked one and struck out three. He remained in the game after a 41-minute rain delay in the bottom of the third inning but wasn't in there for long.

The right-hander has scuffled a bit the last few times out but still sports a nice 3.38 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 24.20 strikeout percentage over 53 1/3 innings. He'll take his 4-3 record into a weekend contest with the Chicago White Sox.
