The Arizona Diamondbacks have declined the $4 million option on right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy. Kennedy did not pitch well this past season, going 4-7 with a 5.36 ERA.

Opponents hit .278 against him in 50.1 innings pitched. Kennedy had ten holds and ten saves while also blowing six saves. Kennedy once won 21 games for the Diamondbacks in the 2011 season when he was a starting pitcher. The Diamondbacks most likely try to upgrade their bullpen in free agency or with trades.

In 16 years, Kennedy had a record of 104-113 with a 4.14 ERA. He also has 66 saves and 1,754 strikeouts in 1888 innings pitched.
