SDSan Diego Padres
2014 Record: 77-85
#22 Ian Kennedy
Jan 16: Kennedy agreed to a one-year, $9.85 million contract with the Padres on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. Kennedy shaved nearly 130 points off his ERA from 2013 in his first full season with the Padres, and while he did benefit from the pitcher-friendly dimensions of Petco Park (7.8% HR/FB), his 3.21 FIP was a career best and suggests he pitched even better than his surface numbers would indicate. The right-hander finished fifth in the NL with 207 strikeouts and will rewarded with a nice raise in his final season before free agency.
