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

Advice: 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."

Advice: 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.

Advice: 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 for the Padres on 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.

Advice: 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. Jason Lane will start in Kennedy's place.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Yankees "are not being aggressive" in their pursuit of Ian Kennedy.

Advice: It essentially backs up what CBS Sports' Jon Heyman said, as Heyman noted Thursday night that while the Yanks like Kennedy, they're not prepared to give up both third base prospect Eric Jagielo and pitching prospect Ian Clarkin for him. That was the proposed package that ESPN's Jim Bowden reported, but it would be a steep price given that they were the Yankees' two first-round picks last season. San Diego is listening on Kennedy, but he's under control next season so they don't feel obligated to move him now.

ESPN's Jim Bowden reports that the Yankees and Padres are discussing a trade that would send Ian Kennedy to New York in exchange for third base prospect Eric Jagielo and pitching prospect Ian Clarkin.

Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that the Yankees are indeed interested in Kennedy but not if it means giving up both Jagielo and Clarkin. It would be Kennedy's second stint in New York if the trade did go through, as he was drafted by the Yanks and spent his first three big league seasons there. Needless to say, it would be just about the worse-case scenario for his fantasy value going from Petco Park to Yankee Stadium. Kennedy is making $6.1 million this season and is eligible for arbitration for a final time this winter.

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.
