Here is some unexpected good news: Ian Kennedy pitched in a game tonight.
The Yankees activated Kennedy off the minor-league disabled list today and placed him on the roster of Single-A Tampa. He started against Charlotte in Game 1 of the Florida State League championship series.
IPK went two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and recording a strikeout. Ian is coming back in stages after having surgery to remove an aneurysm from his shoulder in May. He is ticketed for the Arizona Fall League but any innings he can get now will help him next season.
The Yankees could theoretically have Ian next pitch for Scranton in the International League championship series next week, assuming Scranton advances. Scranton can advance tonight and leads Gwinnett 2-0 in the third inning.
Thanks to Chad Jennings for the info.
