YearComment
2013 No longer able to hack it as a regular, Kennedy turned in a useful season as a bench player, spotting occasionally at third or second base against righties without ever getting an extended look, even amid the Biblical slew of injuries that befell the Dodgers' infielders. Despite missing six weeks in the second half with a recurrent groin strain that ended his season in early September, he ranked second on the team with 33 pinch-hit appearances, and hit righties well enough that he should find part-time work again.
2012 On the last day of the 2006 season, Adam Kennedy walked into the clubhouse and saw he was batting cleanup. Mike Scioscia occasionally uses that spot in the lineup to reward players (he once let Chone Figgins hit fourth because he reached a stolen base milestone) and it was Kennedy's final game as an Angel. He had never batted cleanup beforeónot even high school or collegeóand didn't expect to again. Five years later, coming off a .327 slugging percentage, and one of the least utile utilitymen in the game, something unthinkable happened: Kennedy batted cleanup eight times for the 2011 Mariners, hitting a wretched-but-insignificant .167/.235/.233. More significantly, he hit .190/.218/.285 in the second half, making clear he's in the sunset of his career, which didn't stop the Dodgers from signing him to an $800,000 deal.
2011 "The Oberkfell Puzzle" is not the latest Swedish mystery, it's the proposition that utilitymen who can't play short or center or catch need to do something else well to merit a spot on the majors. Kennedy suffers from a short supply of tangible talents. He can still catch up with a fastball, spray singles around the park, and steal the odd base, but that makes for a fairly limited set of skills to offer a team. He drifted info Washington as infield insurance after winding up one of last winter's free-agent losers, having failed to earn any security after his bounce-back season in Oakland. Pressed into the lineup after Cristian Guzman was dealt to Texas, he didn't hit, putting him back where he was after failing the Cardinals: adrift and running out of chances.
2010 After he failed to make the Rays' roster out of spring training, Kennedy killed time at Durham until they dealt him to Oakland. He turned into one of Oakland's most valuable performers by sheer adequacy, filling in for the injured Eric Chavez and Mark Ellis while putting together the best year of his career since his 2002 season with the Angels. Kennedy remains the same player he was in his 20s, an infielder who can hit for average while popping a smattering of extra-base hits. His career reinvigorated by his Bay-side stay, he remains a free agent at press time, but one with plenty of suitors.
2009 Kennedy saw his bat revive a bit last year after losing its pulse in 2007, and he also played outstanding defense; with Kennedy at second, Izturis at short, and Glaus and Pujols at the corners, the Cards might have had the best infield defense in the majors. The Cards' rotation is made up of fly-ball pitchers, however, which lessens Kennedy's value, but it wouldn't be the worst thing to keep him around as the starter in the last year of his $10 million, three-year pact. The Cards shopped him following the season, but they'll likely go into camp with Kennedy set to see the majority of starts after parting ways with Aaron Miles.
2008 Playing Hoffpauir would involve recognizing Kennedy as a sunk cost. A remarkably consistent player prior to last year, Kennedy had his worst season at age 31 and is signed for both 2009 and 2010 at a cost of $7.5 million. With a thousand games at second base under his belt and almost all of his value tied up in his bat speed and legs, the sudden decline isn't surprising. While a dead-cat bounce is likely, he's no better than a replacement-level player and a drag on the roster.
2007 A lot of his value offensively is in his line-drive stroke, and batting averages can move around, but he has a bit of doubles power, and he won`t absolutely refuse to take a walk. His defensive skills are similarly understated but useful. What`s a little more troubling is that Kennedy`s going to be 31, and his PECOTA comparables are all guys whose careers fell apart around that age. Still, if he has years as good as Mickey Morandini did in 1997 and 1998 at ages 31 and 32 (.295/.376/.382 combined), you have to figure the Cardinals will take whatever they get in year three of his new deal.
2006 Kennedy missed the first month of the season recovering from knee surgery, but ended up fourth on the Angels in VORP anyway. Some of that is the value of having a good hitter at second base, but it`s also a reflection of the lineup`s general mediocrity Kennedy had an insane June (.435/.479/.529), kept his batting average high all season, and was the only Angel to finish the year over .300. He hit more balls on the ground than ever last year, perhaps boosting his average but sacrificing what little power he had. Now 30, Kennedy is just good enough to play. With Kendrick coming up fast and Kennedy`s contract up at the end of the season, Stoneman has a nifty bargaining chip to offer around. There are a lot of teams that could use a hitter as reliably useful as Kennedy is.
2005 Kennedy totaled his MCL and ACL in September, shelving him for the playoffs, spring training, and perhaps April. He was having a season roughly identical to his 2003, and a stay at this level, rather than bouncing back to that of 2002, is most likely. The loss in batting average from that season to this has been neatly offset by an increase in his walk rate. The Angel most likely to strike out, in part because he was working deeper counts than he had before (3.96 pitches per plate appearances, a career high). It will be fascinating to see if he continues to buck Hatcher's philosophies, assuming his approach survives the knee injury.
2003 Kennedy is a great example of the Angelsí blend of strengths and vulnerabilities. Heís a good defensive player whose offensive production is highly dependent on his ability to hit for a very high batting average, much like Anderson, Erstad, and Fullmer. If he hits .312 and carries a great glove, heís an asset. If he hits .280 and the leather slips just a little, heís a problem. For the foreseeable future, heís a pretty good bet to be an asset, and he should exceed the forecast above.
2002 Kennedy has paid lip service to avoiding outs but hasnít shown any improvement in doing so. Another Angel stuck in neutral, heís essentially the same player he was in 1999: enough power to be intriguing, but otherwise replaceable. Players this young shouldnít be known quantities.
2001 For all the hoopla surrounding his performance, this wasn't a good season for Adam Kennedy. While he hit a lot of doubles, he didn't hit home runs, and he took a walk about once every five games. He isn't going to learn plate discipline unless he starts taking instruction from Troy Glaus instead of his "hitting" coach. Kennedy is young and should improve, hitting for a higher average and a little more power.
2000 Much could be made of the fact that Kennedy was the only prospect to play in the Futures Game, the Triple-A All-Star Game, the Pan Am Games and the major leagues. However, he's older than Andruw Jones and has more in common with Jim Gantner than Craig Biggio. Kennedy can spray the ball to all fields and has decent power for a middle infielder, but he could learn a thing or two about taking pitches. He's not a burner on the bases and has work to do on his fielding. His chance to start 2000 as the Cardsí second baseman died when the team picked up Fernando Vina.
1999 Named one of the top hitters to come out of the í97 draft, Kennedy is considered a great athlete but not a great shortstop. The Cardinals were thinking about moving him to second at the start of the year, but then Jason Woolf got hurt, so he moved up to Arkansas to play short, and then he wasnít so bad there, and suddenly heís still a shortstop. A separated shoulder suffered in the Arizona Fall League isnít going to require surgery, so heíll get a look in camp at both second and short for the major league squad.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems that Mike Rizzo has increased the credibility of the Nationals within baseball, but there are more moves to be made to increase the number of wins they will have. Should the Nats have Orlando Hudson, Adam Kennedy or Cristian Guzman at 2nd base? Which veteran pitcher should they sign? Would accomplishing both moves mean much for their record in 2010?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
There is no doubt that Mike Rizzo is extremely well respected in the game and I have no doubts he has the Nats on the right course. Normally, I'd say go with the kids in their case but they need to establish some crediblity in their market now. THus, I'd suggest they sign Hudson and Doug Davis. (John Perrotto)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much could the Twins have used someone like Russell Branyan down the stretch (injury complications aside)? Why the heck did the M's not trade a 33 year old at the height of his career value?
(WilliamWilde from Boston)
Twins win, and the best thing about it is, we get to see the next chapter this very same day...

I'll see your Branyan and raise you an Adam Kennedy, both because the Twins could have used him and because of the inexplicable non-trading of a journeyman having a good year. (Steven Goldman)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think should be the starter at second base for the Twins? I know it's like choosing the lesser of two evils, but I don't really want to see Nick Punto flail away at pitches no where close to the strike zone. Also, why in the world was Delmon Young a #1 Prospect, and who should be playing left field for us?
(twinkies25 from MN)
I would hope they'd just lock in and place their faith in Casilla. Punto's a better utility infielder than a starter, and I'm reluctant to get worked up in Brendan Harris' behalf when he isn't hitting and concerns over his defense up the middle dog him with a certain persistence. Failing a commitment to Casilla, they should have asked the A's for Adam Kennedy. It's never too late to ask after David Eckstein, for that matter, and he'd go over well in the Twin Cities, methinks. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)... "because finding a playable replacement-level second baseman if or when he breaks again is probably the single easiest position fix you could name." Doesn't that mean you're setting "replacement level" at the wrong place? Replacement level should be equally easy to find across positions, shouldn't it?
(ccweinmann from seattle)
I suppose it depends upon how wedded to the concept of an abstract replacement level you are; I guess I look at the proposition as one of whether or not it's easy to find someone in the real world who's playable at the position. It's easier and more worthwhile to find Adam Kennedy than Luis Hernandez, for example. (Christina Kahrl)
