Kennedy throws BP for 1st time since surgery
Kennedy threw 30 pitches on Wednesday, and is scheduled to have another batting practice session on Saturday. The 24-year-old could pitch in a two-inning simulated game on Tuesday.
The right-hander was pitching for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when he had numbness in his pitching hand. He is set to pitch in September's instructional league and later in the Arizona Fall League.
Kennedy went 1-4 with a 6.14 ERA in 13 major league games with the Yankees from 2007-08, including 12 starts.
"It was fun to finally get some competitive juices flowing and to see some hitters," Kennedy said. "I'm surprised I wasn't tired at the end."
