MLB Diamondbacks reliever Ian Kennedy leaves with apparent leg injury

Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Ian Kennedy left the game against the Colorado Rockies in Denver on Sunday with what appeared to be a right knee or leg injury.

Kennedy threw just seven pitches before exiting with a trainer looking at his right leg.

With the Diamondbacks guarding a 5-3 lead, the right-handed set-up man got the first batter on a flyout, but left with a full count against Yonathan Daza, who greeted Noe Ramirez with a single. Charlie Blackmon followed with a single, and C.J. Cron blasted his second three-run home run of the game for a 6-5 lead.

Kennedy entered the game with a 3-4 record and a 3.62 ERA in 31 games, all out of the bullpen. He has four saves.

In 456 games, including 290 starts, with six teams, Kennedy, is 103-110 with a 4.10 ERA. He has pitched for the New York Yankees, San Diego Padres, Kansas City Royals, Texas Rangers and Philadelphia Phillies and is in his second stint with the Diamondbacks.
