Recent Update

7/8:The Kansas City Royals will turn to starting pitcher Ian Kennedy to bring down the mighty Dodgers on Saturday, but it'll be a momentous task. Kennedy has been on a roll recently as he's won three of his last four starts while posting a 2.22 ERA. Unfortunately for Kansas City, the Dodgers have won 17 of their last 18 games at home and Kennedy's pretty ERA is built on the back of a 92.9% strand rate and ultra-depressed .145 BABIP. These numbers are primed for regression, and that's why his FIP is 5.05 over that same string of games. Fantasy owners would be smart to avoid Kennedy unless absolutely necessary.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
