Kennedy optioned

The Yankees have optioned Ian Kennedy to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and have called up LHP Billy Traber, according to Peter Abraham.

Kennedy was sent down with instructions to work on his pitching, not work on throwing seven shutout innings. He has proven he can win in the International League. He need to work on specific things now like his two-seamer and curveball.
Kennedy looked lost on Friday night, so this is the right move no matter who they called up.

It really makes you wonder what they're teaching these "prospects" in the minor leagues. Hopefully they've realized what's wrong with Kennedy and can fix him because with each bad start, he is looking like a AAAA pitcher.

Let's pray he can finally learn something from this one day trip to the bigs.
