How current Rockies batters have fared against Ian Kennedy

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Ian Kennedy is scheduled to start for the Padres this evening against the division rival Rockies, so it seemed like a good idea to see how he's done in the past against position players on their active roster, with opposing starter Chad Bettis (no relation to Jerome) thrown in for good measure. You'll notice that old friend Nick Hundley is not included, as he was recently placed on the 60-day DL; he left the game the Sunday before last with a stiff neck that was later diagnosed as a cervical sprain. I've had one of those before and it's no joke (well, other than me saying to the doctor "I didn't even think I had a cervix!"). But I digress...

Nolan Arenado: 6-22 (.273), 2 2B, HR, 4 RBI, BB, 3 K

Brandon Barnes: 1-4 (.250), BB, K

Chad Bettis: 0-1 (.000)

Charlie Blackmon: 6-24 (.250), 3 RBI, 10 K

Daniel Descalso: 4-13 (.308), 2B, HR, 3 RBI, BB, 5 K

Corey Dickerson: 2-15 (.133), 2B, 7 K

Dustin Garneau: 0-2 (.000), K

Carlos Gonzalez: 5-35 (.143), 2 2B, 2 HR, 2 RBI, BB, 15 K

DJ LeMahieu: 10-25 (.400), 4 2B, 3B, HR, 5 RBI, 4 BB, 3 K

Justin Morneau: 6-19 (.316), 2 2B, 3 RBI, BB, 3 K

Kyle Parker: 0-3 (.000), 3 K

Ben Paulsen: 2-3 (.667), 2B, K

Jose Reyes: 2-11 (.182), RBI, BB, 2 K

Wilin Rosario: 4-14 (.286), 2 2B, 2 RBI, BB, 4 K

Kennedy has yet to face rookies Cristhian Adames, Rafael Ynoa, and Tom Murphy. The current Rockies he has faced have combined to go 48-for-181 (.265) with 15 doubles, a triple, five home runs, and 23 RBI while taking 11 walks and striking out 58 times.
