Diamondbacks trade rumors: Angels, Padres interested in Ian Kennedy

USA TODAY Sports

The right-hander may be moved to clear salary space for Jake Peavy.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are now considered likely to land either Jake Peavy or Bud Norris, and are suddenly working to trade pitcher Ian Kennedy before the deadline as well. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Angels are hopeful of landing the 28-year old right-hander from Arizona.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com notes that the Padres are also interested in acquiring Kennedy, and ESPN's Buster Olney speculates that the Cubs would be a good fit as well. The Angels seem to be most aggressive on the right-hander, and are willing to move major league players to get any deal done.

Kennedy, who finished fourth in last year's NL Cy Young award voting, is 3-7 with a 5.22 ERA, 7.6 K/9, and 3.4 BB/9 in 20 starts on the season. The Diamondbacks are shopping both him and outfielder Jason Kubel in an effort to clear salary space for the potential addition of Peavy.
