Adam Kennedy Planning Comeback

Infielder Adam Kennedy is planning to make a comeback attempt in 2014, MLBTR has learned. Kennedy, who will turn 38 in January, sat out the 2013 season and will work out for Major League teams in the second week of January.

Kennedy batted a solid .262/.345/.357 with a pair of homers in 201 plate appearances for the Dodgers in 2012. Though he's played primarily second base throughout a 14-season big league career, Kennedy also has significant experience at third base and first base. He is a career .272/.327/.384 batter in 6055 Major League plate appearances. Kennedy won a World Series with the 2002 Angels and took home ALCS MVP honors on the strength of a three-homer game against the Twins that sent the Halos to the Fall Classic.

    Angels traded away two fan favorites. Come on, sign an old one back!

      Angels got Kennedy in the Jim Edmonds deal. He left for STL again via Free Agency.

        He’s talking about trading Trumbo and Bourjos. I also would like to have AK back, just for memory’s sake.

        • MikeTroutForMayor 2 years ago

          Ah got it. My mistake.

          Although it might be kinda fun, what exactly would he do to help the Angels?

          • Alex Mejia 2 years ago

            Nothing, we just want to feel good about 2014 lol

            We should bring back GA and Tim Salmon then.

          • Bryan 2 years ago

          I’d rather have Scot Shields back to replace Butcher if we’re going down memory lane.

          • Alex Mejia 2 years ago

            You and me both brother. I miss Scot Shields like crazy.

    • Josh Blackfeild 2 years ago

      As a coach maybe. Not as a player.

    Mulder and now Adam kennedy. That what happens when 37^ years old players get overpay.

    • WhoKilledTheRallyMonkey 2 years ago

      Ya Kennedy was really overpaid making 800 K last time he played…

    • Josh Blackfeild 2 years ago

      Colon will get overpaid big time too.

  3. AK to the Halos would be most excellent.

    Yankees to play 2nd base.

  6. WhoKilledTheRallyMonkey 2 years ago

    Adam Kennedy was an awesome Angel, there’s not much of a place for him on the team with Kendrick, Green and Freese on the roster but I would like to have him back in the clubhouse. Great personality.
