  • Red Sox's Brett Kennedy: Joins Boston on MiLB deal

    Kennedy signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on May 25.

    Boston assigned him to Double-A Portland, with whom he tossed three scoreless innings in his first appearance Thursday. Before signing with Boston, Kennedy had been pitching in the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball with the Long Island Ducks. The 27-year-old righty previously made his MLB debut with the Padres in 2018, but he hasn't resurfaced in the majors since making six starts for San Diego that season.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Kennedy (lat) was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Kennedy missed the entire 2019 season with a lat strain, and is now off the 40-man roster after posting a 6.75 ERA in six starts for the Padres in 2018. There's a chance he could attend major-league spring training as a non-roster invitee.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Still shut down with lat issue

    Kennedy (lat) began a rehab assignment Aug. 3 with the Padres' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate but hasn't appeared in any minor-league games since that date.

    Kennedy gave up a run on two hits and a walk over his lone inning with the affiliate in what marked his first competitive action since he was diagnosed with a lat strain in spring training. His lack of usage in the subsequent two weeks following the rehab outing suggests he may have experienced a setback, though the Padres haven't confirmed that's the case. Even if Kennedy makes it back on the mound before the end of 2019, his limited action since the spring makes it unlikely he'll be a September callup for San Diego.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Kennedy (lat) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    The transaction clears space on the 40-man roster for Alex Dickerson, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding move. Kennedy remains without a clear target date to return from his lat strain.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Lands on IL

    Kennedy (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day IL.

    He is dealing with a lat strain and has been shut down until mid-April. It's possible he will be able to return this summer, but it will likely be a fairly long process of rehab and building back up before he can return to the majors.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Diagnosed with lat strain

    Kennedy has been diagnosed with a lat strain and will be shut down for a month, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    After a month it will be back to square one for Kennedy, who will need at least another month to build back up to the point that he could join the big-league bullpen.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Not throwing Friday

    Kennedy will not throw as scheduled Friday due to "general arm fatigue," AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Kennedy was set to pitch during a back-field game but will instead take a break from throwing. The specifics of the issue remain unclear as the 24-year-old is still being evaluated.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Undergoes knee surgery

    Kennedy underwent a procedure to debride the tendinitis in his left knee Wednesday. He is expected to resume throwing in mid-November, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Kennedy began feeling soreness in the knee a couple weeks ago, and doctors determined that the surgical route would be best, especially with the season nearing its completion. The right-hander is expected to be fully operational by the time spring training rolls around.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Bounced from rotation

    Kennedy no longer appears to be included in the Padres' rotation, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    The Padres added Bryan Mitchell to their rotation earlier this month in what was expected to be a temporary measure to give their four rookie starting pitchers additional rest between turns, but the veteran has seemingly performed well enough to stick around for additional starts. With manager Andy Green opting not to expand the rotation to six men, it appears Kennedy is the odd man out, as he hasn't pitched since Sept. 7 and isn't listed as a probable starter for any of the team's next four games. The decision to move Kennedy to the bullpen doesn't come as much of a surprise after the 24-year-old posted a 6.75 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB in 26.2 innings over his first six MLB starts.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Yanked after short outing versus Reds

    Kennedy surrendered four runs on one hit and four walks while striking out two across 1.2 innings Friday against the Reds. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Kennedy didn't appear to have his command, tossing just 20 of 44 pitches for strikes. He was coming off a stellar outing against the Rockies (six shutout innings), but he failed to build off the success he found last time out. Through six starts this year, Kennedy owns a 6.75 ERA and 1.80 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 26.2 frames.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Bags first win of season

    Kennedy (1-2) got the win against the Rockies on Friday, throwing six scoreless innings while yielding just four hits, striking out two and walking two in San Diego's 7-0 victory.

    The right-hander has now looked solid in three straight contests after giving up 11 runs in his first two starts, and he was rewarded with his first win of the season for this strong showing against a tough Rockies lineup. Kennedy still has a bloated 5.76 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP through his 25 innings, so he has a long way to go before he could be deemed a viable fantasy play.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Done in by long ball

    Kennedy gave up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings and settling for a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Kennedy got off to a rough start, serving up a three-run homer to Manny Machado in the first inning. The rookie settled down and tossed four scoreless frames to salvage his outing. The long ball continues to plague the 24-year-old, as Saturday's homer was the sixth he has surrendered in just four starts this month. Kennedy is lined up to make one more start before rosters expand, but he shouldn't draw much fantasy interest in a home matchup against the Rockies next Friday.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Avoids third straight loss

    Kennedy allowed two runs on three walks and six hits across give innings in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Arizona. He took the no-decision, striking out four batters and yielding a homer.

    It was a pretty lackluster outing for Kennedy but certainly better than his first two big-league outings. He entered Sunday's contest having given up 11 runs on 20 hits in just nine innings. Assuming the rookie righty stays with the Padres, he'll get his next start at the Dodgers on Saturday.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Allows five in loss

    Kennedy (0-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings against the Angels.

    Kennedy allowed four extra-base hits in the outing -- a home run, a triple and two doubles -- and he didn't appear to be fooling hitters as he induced just three swings and misses. The 24-year-old was a perfect 10-0 with Triple-A El Paso, but he's now yielded 11 runs on 20 hits with just five strikeouts in nine innings in his first two big-league starts -- both losses. If he's given another turn through the rotation, Kennedy will take on the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Getting another start Tuesday

    Kennedy will start for the Padres in Tuesday's game against the Angels.

    After he was roughed up for six runs in four innings in his MLB debut Aug. 8, Kennedy's standing in the rotation appeared to be on shaky ground. Though the Padres called up prospect Jacob Nix and handed him a start over the weekend, there will be room for both him and Kennedy in the rotation for the time being with Eric Lauer (forearm) not ready to return from the disabled list and Walker Lockett getting sent back to Triple-A El Paso. Kennedy may need to turn in a better result against the Angels in order to bolster his case for sticking in a starting role with the Padres the rest of the way.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Allows six in MLB debut

    Kennedy (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, allowing six runs on 11 hits while striking out three over four innings against the Brewers.

    It was a rough big-league debut for the 24-year-old, as right out of the gate he was tagged for back-to-back-to-back home runs in a five-run first inning. It's unclear if Kennedy will see another turn through the rotation and he certainly didn't do himself any favors in that regard in Wednesday's outing, but he's put up solid numbers with Triple-A El Paso this season. Over 89.1 innings at the level, he's 10-0 with a 2.72 ERA and 80:23 K:BB.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: Contract selected from Triple-A

    Kennedy had his contract purchased from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.

    Kennedy will join the big club ahead of his big-league debut, which is set for Wednesday against the Brewers. The 24-year-old has impressed with the Chihuahuas this season, compiling a 10-0 record, 2.72 ERA and 80 strikeouts across 89.1 innings of work. It's unclear if Kennedy will remain in the rotation beyond Wednesday's outing, though that could depend on how he fares.

  • Padres' Brett Kennedy: To make MLB debut Wednesday

    Kennedy will start Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.

    Kennedy has put together solid numbers at Triple-A El Paso in 2018, as he owns a 10-0 record with 2.72 ERA and 80 strikeouts across 89.1 innings. He figures to have his work cut out for him in his first major-league start against a tough Milwaukee lineup. It's unclear whether Kennedy will remain in the starting rotation following his scheduled outing, though the Padres are in need of a fifth starter after Jordan Lyles was picked up by the Brewers off waivers Sunday.
