Padres' Ian Kennedy to miss scheduled start against Braves due to 'mild' left oblique strain

  • Print

ATLANTA - Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy will miss his scheduled start against the Braves on Monday due to a left oblique strain.

Manager Bud Black says converted outfielder Jason Lane will be recalled from Triple-A El Paso to make the fill-in start.

Black says Kennedy suffered the "mild" oblique strain in an at-bat.

Black said before Sunday's game Kennedy will miss the start despite being "so close" to being ready to pitch Sunday. Kennedy has been playing catch and is expected to start either Friday or Saturday.

Kennedy is 8-9 with a 3.66 ERA and has been mentioned in trade rumours.

Lane, who played outfield for Houston and the Padres from 2002-2007, threw 4 1-3 scoreless innings in two appearances with San Diego in June.
