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

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.
