Pitchers in the minors

Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes and Carl Pavano all pitched in the minors tonight. Kennedy pitched for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Hughes and Pavano both pitched for Class A Charleston. Here are their lines:

Kennedy: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Pavano: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Hughes: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

I'll spare you the Pavano jokes because frankly, they're not that funny and the situation is actually kind of depressing.

Kennedy is rather close to rejoining the team. In six appearances for Triple-A in July, Kennedy has a 2.32 ERA. His walk total (12 in 31 innings) is a bit of a concern, but he could still be a better option than Darrell Rasner or Sidney Ponson are.
