Fantasy Baseball's Line of the Day: 04/25/2011

SP Ian Kennedy of the Arizona Diamondbacks pitched a complete game three-hit shutout to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0. He struck out 10 and walked none in recording his first career complete game.

Line: 9 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K

My fantasy perspective: Kennedy (ADP of 209.6 on ESPN) was on my fantasy radar this offseason as a pitcher capable of 12-15 wins,  an ERA under 4.00, a WHIP around 1.30 and the ability to rack up 175 K's. Those numbers were right in line with other projections. For the season, he's 3-1 with a 4.02 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP and a 7.47 K/9 ratio. At that rate, over 200 innings pitched, he'd be looking at 167 K's for the season. Kennedy is currently owned in 55.9% of ESPN leagues and 52% of Yahoo! leagues. I'd pick him up for his next start against the Cubs.
