Royals | Ian Kennedy roughed up by Tribe

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:52:12 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy endured one of his worst starts of the season Wednesday, July 20, versus the Cleveland Indians. He lasted just 4 1/3 innings, getting knocked around for seven runs on six hits, including a season-high four home runs allowed. Kennedy also struck out eight and walked one.

Fantasy Tip: Well, at least Kennedy was able to provide something for his owners with that strikeout total but other than that, this was a disaster of an outing. It was the third time this season the 31-year-old allowed seven runs, and it ended a streak of solid pitching, as Kennedy had allowed three runs or less in each of his last five outings. Hopefully he can bounce back his next time out.

Royals | Ian Kennedy strikes out 10 Jays

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 19:20:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy struck out 10 batters in a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 6. He allowed two runs on four hits and one walk over six innings.

Fantasy Tip: Although Kennedy has 103 strikeouts in just 99 2/3 innings, he has also allowed at least one home run in six consecutive starts and has given up 21 gopher balls this year (tied for second-most in the league). He should only be used in DFS if he has a favorable matchup against a team without much power in their lineup.

Royals | Ian Kennedy allowing the long ball

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 14:46:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy has given up 20 home runs this year, which is tied for the second most in the majors, and he's allowed at least one long ball in each of his last six starts. He's lost his last five road starts and is facing the Toronto Blue Jays on the road Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy is surely one to avoid tonight against a Toronto lineup with plenty of long-ball ability in a hitter-friendly park.

Royals | Ian Kennedy suffers loss Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 19:17:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy (6-7) allowed three runs on six hits over five innings in a loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, July 1, with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Kennedy has pitched well in his last two outings, walking four while striking out 19 over 12 innings. However, he makes a somewhat risky play for his next scheduled start versus the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 6.
