Adam Kennedy Drawing Interest

Free agent infielder Adam Kennedy is drawing interest as a left-handed bench bat and super utility player. Agent Tim Trafficanda of TWC Sports told MLBTR discussions are taking place with three to four teams.

Kennedy, who turns 37 on Thursday, played in 86 games for the 2012 Dodgers, posting a .262/.345/.357 batting line in 201 plate appearances. The 14-year MLB veteran spent considerable time at second base and third base, and made appearances at first base and in left field. Kennedy posted a .268/.361/.377 batting line in 170 plate appearances against right-handed pitching in 2012, a reasonable approximation of his career .278/.333/.400 line against righties.

Kennedy obtained a one-year, Major League deal worth $800K plus incentives when he signed with the Dodgers last offseason. He’s in the process of opening a baseball development facility in Anaheim.
