Recent Update

5/22:The Kansas City Royals were excited to see starting pitcher Ian Kennedy (hamstring) return from the disabled list on Sunday, but the excitement was short-lived. Kennedy was activated between the two games of the doubleheader so that he could start the second one, and he was quickly chased by the Twins. Kennedy only lasted two innings, and Minnesota hung five earned runs on him in the short outing. Outfielders Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler both took Kennedy deep in the first inning, and he surrendered a run-scoring double to second baseman Brian Dozier in the second. Hopefully, this is just a rusty start coming off the DL instead of a sign that an injury is lingering.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
