Ian Kennedy pitched one [scoreless] inning for Scranton against Indianapolis.I strongly agree with Pete's final thought. You would like to see Kennedy get (at least) a full second start to further test himself at AAA before such an instantaneous return to the rotation.
12 pitches / 7 strikes. Scott Strickland replaced him.
Kennedy has thrown 8.1 innings for Scranton. 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 8 strikeouts. He’ll be here to face the Rays on Thursday.
Personally, I’d think you want him to show a little more down there.
Unfortunately for the Yankees, as Abraham also notes, they cannot afford to simply give the game away by allowing Kei Igawa to pitch.
