Texas Rangers Sign 17-Year Veteran Pitcher

The Texas Rangers have made a notable move by re-signing veteran right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy to a minor league contract.

Kennedy, who had previously played for the Rangers in 2021, was designated for assignment in May after a less impressive performance this season.

Despite his struggles, the team saw potential in him and decided to bring him back into the fold. By joining the Triple-A Round Rock squad, Kennedy aims to rediscover his form and secure a spot in the Texas bullpen.

Now, with an opportunity to fine-tune his game in the minor leagues, Kennedy hopes to regain his confidence and show that he still has what it takes to be a valuable asset.

The Rangers' bullpen has experienced its fair share of struggles this year, but recent improvements have been promising.

While Kennedy's signing may not have an immediate impact or result in high-pressure situations, it adds depth and potential reinforcements to the bullpen roster.

As he works his way back to peak performance, Kennedy could become a solid asset for the Texas Rangers.

Over his 17-year career, the 38-year-old holds a 4.15 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, while averaging 8.4 K/9 across 1,898 innings and 492 appearances. Photo Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
