2019 Fantasy Outlook
After an awful second season in Kansas City, Kennedy appeared to be turning things around to begin 2018. In his first seven starts of the season, the veteran compiled a 2.92 ERA and 8.5 K/9 across 37 frames. Then the bottom fell out. He gave up at least five earned runs in four of his next five starts, raising his ERA to a lofty 6.08 mark, and wound up missing time due to a strained oblique. His numbers at the end of the season were mediocre at best: 4.66 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 7.9 K/9, 1.5 HR/9. His 4.65 FIP suggests that his numbers paint a pretty accurate picture of his 2018 performance. Kennedy's best days are behind him, that's no secret. He talked early in the offseason about possibly attempting to reinvent himself as a reliever. It will be interesting to see how his stuff plays out of the bullpen. Read Past Outlooks
