Before last night, Ian Kennedy's career AAA numbers looked like this:
2.26 ERA and 106 strikeouts in 103 IP with just 28 walks
So last night he makes his first start of 2009, and responds with 6 IP, 4H, 1ER, 0BB, 11K.
Is he the classic AAAA pitcher? I'm not so sure. His dominating K rates alone should tell us there's something more here.
Interesting to follow-if he keeps this up, he will force another look in NY.
