Ian Kennedy's Report Card

Ian Kennedy pitched a great game today in his debut for the Yankees posting a line of 7 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 6 Ks and one HR. Here are my grades on his performance

Control: While the 2 BB seem a little high for someone that is a control pitcher, Kennedy did a good job of locating his pitches and keeping the ball away from the middle of the plate. He lived up to his hype on this account, any pitch in any count. Besides giving up the HR to Upton(who is having a great season) he did a good job of commanding his pitches. B

Stuff: Kennedy has better stuff than I expected. His fastball seemed to have good movement and his slider seemed to be a bit better than "average." His curve had good late break and his change-up was as good as proclaimed, a true Plus pitch A

Poise: Not only Kennedy throw the ball well but he kept his cool on the mound. Getting into jams didn't seem to phase him much and he seemed pretty relaxed for his major league debut at Yankee Stadium A+

Overall: Kennedy had a great start to his ML career today. He kept a pretty good offense in check and kept the Yankees in the game, something that Mike Mussina couldn't do. Other than the HR to Upton I couldn't ask for much more from a 22 year old in his first year of professional baseball. A
