Kennedy (9-10) secured the victory Wednesday against the Rockies, holding the opposition to three runs over six innings while striking out eight batters in the 5-3 win.

Kennedy worked six innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out five in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Pirates.

Kennedy was definitely a tough-luck loser Friday night, as both runs surrendered by the Padres' righty came in the first inning. Despite this solid effort, Kennedy continues to struggle with command since the All-Star break. The 29-year-old hurler has managed to put up a decent 3.68 ERA even while issuing 16 walks and holding a 1.55 WHIP across his last 22 innings. However, if he is unable to improve his control, the runs are sure to follow at some point. Kennedy's next start is scheduled for Thursday in St. Louis.

Kennedy struck out five and walked three while giving up two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits over six innings in a losing effort Friday. After the game, it was revealed that his oblique is still not 100 percent healed, U-T San Diego reports.

In his two at-bats, Kennedy went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts, and he's expected to limit his work with the bat as a way to minimize the possibility of making his injury worse.

A source tells FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that the Royals, Pirates, Marlins "and others" are in on Ian Kennedy.

Rosenthal also notes the right-hander isn't a certainty to be dealt at the deadline. The Padres would have incentive to hold onto him, as Kennedy still has another year of arbitration before becoming a free agent. Still, he's having a great year and the Padres would likely be better dealing him for players who will be peaking closer to when they're ready to contend. Stay tuned.

Chad Jennings of the LoHud Yankees Blog was told that the Yankees' interest in Ian Kennedy was "medium."

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reported last week that the Yankees were "not being aggressive" in their pursuit of Kennedy. There's also been a feeling that the Padres might prefer to hang on to Kennedy, who is under team control next season. Kennedy is currently out with an oblique injury but is expected to rejoin the rotation on Saturday.

Ian Kennedy (oblique) is expected to return to the Padres' rotation on Saturday versus the Braves.

Kennedy was scratched from his scheduled turn Monday due to soreness in his left oblique, but it's not a major concern. He is expected to throw a side session on Wednesday. Jason Lane will start in his place Monday afternoon at Turner Field in Atlanta.

Ian Kennedy will not make his scheduled start on Monday versus the Braves due to left oblique soreness.

Kennedy is not expected to require a disabled list stint, but he'll have one turn skipped. It's poor timing, of course, given that the Padres are considering trading the right-hander before the deadline. The Pads haven't announced who will replace Kennedy on Monday.
