Player Notes
According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Padres "have sent word to some teams that they would need to be overwhelmed to trade" starting pitcher Ian Kennedy.

Advice: This could be a negotiating ploy on the part of the Padres, or it might just be serious. Kennedy is under contractual control (via arbitration) through the 2015 season, so the San Diego front office can slow-play this and wait for the best offer -- even if it doesn't come until this winter or next summer. The 29-year-old right-hander owns an impressive 3.66 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 143/42 K/BB ratio in 135 1/3 innings (22 starts) this season.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Pirates and Royals each had scouts on hand to watch Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy on Friday.

Advice: The Pirates are in the market for rotation and bullpen help, while Rosenthal notes that the Royals are simply keeping all of their options open. With the Huston Street trade completed on Friday, expect the Padres to be very active in the coming days as they deal several other veterans who don't fit into the team's long-term vision.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres and Angels "do not match up" for Ian Kennedy.

Advice: Rosenthal notes that the two clubs are still talking about a possible deal involving Huston Street. Kennedy figures to be one of the better pitchers moved this month, but the Angels have a barren farm system and don't want to trade major league pieces in order to get something done.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels are targeting Padres starter Ian Kennedy.

Advice: Anaheim has also been in talks with the still-under-construction San Diego front office about closer Huston Street. Kennedy, 29, has registered an exceptional 3.47 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 133/34 K/BB ratio across 124 1/3 innings (20 starts) this season for the Padres. According to the pitching metric xFIP, he ranks better this year than guys like Max Scherzer, Adam Wainwright, and Jeff Samardzija. Kennedy is arbitration-eligible through 2015, so the Friars will probably want a fairly substantial return package.
