Player Notes
Padres manager Bud Black announced Thursday that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will return to the Padres' starting rotation Saturday against the Dodgers.

Advice: Kennedy suffered a left hamstring strain in his first start of the 2015 season, but he only wound up missing two turns. The 30-year-old right-hander struck out 207 batters in 201 innings last season alongside a 3.63 ERA and is pitching for a big contract in his walk year. Odrisamer Despaigne is headed back to the bullpen.

Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw a side session Wednesday.

Advice: Kennedy said the session went well. The right-hander continues to work his way back from a left hamstring strain suffered in his first start of the season. Kennedy will likely be activated and start Saturday against the Dodgers.

Padres manager Bud Black said that Ian Kennedy (hamstring) "looked good" during an 81-pitch appearance in an extended spring training game Monday.

Advice: "He looked good, [threw] all his pitches," Black said. "He had a few strikeouts. They nicked him for a couple runs, but overall he's throwing the ball good, no issues with the hamstring." Black wouldn't officially confirm that Kennedy was slated to rejoin the rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers when first eligible, but all signs point to it happening. Odrisamer Despaigne will head back to the bullpen.

Ian Kennedy (hamstring) will throw 75-90 pitches in an extended spring training game on Monday.

Advice: He was cleared for game action after getting through a bullpen session Friday with no issues. That the Padres have decided to give him an extended spring training start rather than send him on an official rehab assignment should be irrelevant. Kennedy will be eligible for activation five days after Monday's appearance and should be penciled in to rejoin the rotation on April 25 versus the Dodgers.

Ian Kennedy (hamstring) threw a bullpen session Wednesday.

Advice: Kennedy hit the disabled list after suffering a hamstring strain in his 2015 debut. He'll throw another bullpen session Friday, after which he will go on a rehab assignment. It sounds as though he won't miss much more than the minimum, a good sign for Kennedy owners.
