The Kansas City Royals are pursuing New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon, Boston Red Sox SP John Lackey and San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.
Fantasy Tip: They're also investigating A.J. Burnett. A move to Kansas City's park would be positive for any of these three, but the offense won't boost their chances for run support and wins that much.

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy is looking less likely to be traded, but OF Chris Denorfia probably will be dealt.
Fantasy Tip: Kennedy staying put would be good news for his fantasy value and NL-only owners. His current oblique injury may scare teams off. Denorfia leaving would be a positive fantasy development; joining any other offense and entering any other home park would be an upgrade that could extract more deep-mixed utility.

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy (oblique) is "so close" to being ready to pitch again, and he is expected to start again either Friday, Aug. 1, or Saturday, Aug. 2. Kennedy is 8-9 with a 3.66 ERA this season.
Fantasy Tip: If you have the luxury of doing so, it's probably safer to keep him on your bench in weekly leagues. The Padres face the Atlanta Braves this weekend, making Kennedy a decent start at home if he makes his next start.

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy was scouted by the New York Yankees in Chicago Wednesday, July 23. The Yankees are trying to trade for a starting pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: Full circle for the former Bomber? He's a much different, improved pitcher than he was in his early Yanks days, but anyone who would go from PETCO Park to Yankee Stadium deserves added risk to their fantasy value. Still, if this happens, AL-only players should be willing to stake a high FAAB crossover bid that he has enough skills to overcome his would-be new home park.
