Ian Kennedy (strained lat) pitched for the Gulf Coast League Yankees today. He allowed one run on three hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over three innings. No word on exactly how many pitches he threw, but he wasn’t supposed to go over 50.
Chase Wright, who is on the Trenton DL, also pitched three innings.
Kennedy is likely to make at least two or three starts before the Yankees even consider bringing him back. Depending on the state of the rotation, it wouldn’t shock me if they optioned him to Scranton for a few weeks.
