Royals put Kennedy back on disabled list

Royals put Kennedy back on disabled list

Kansas City Royals pitcher Ian Kennedy is back on the disabled list with an oblique injury.

The Royals placed Kennedy on the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain Wednesday, one day after the right-hander pitched just three innings against the Minnesota Twins.

Kennedy was making his return from the DL after being sidelined since late June, also because of a left oblique strain. He said that the new injury was in a different location than his previous oblique strain.

“All week, the last 10 days, everything has been getting better,” Kennedy said Tuesday after the Royals’ 9-4 victory. “It felt great all night, and then all of a sudden I felt something at the bottom of my ribs. … It’s just aggravating.”


Kennedy, 33, has struggled this season, going 1-8 with a 5.13 ERA. The 12-year veteran is in the third year of a five-year, $70 million contract with the Royals.

The Royals recalled right-hander Jason Adam from Triple-A Omaha to replace Kennedy on their 25-man roster.
