Bits: Kennedy, Santos come up big

Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ian Kennedy tossed a three-hit shutout against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday, striking out 10 without walking anyone. Unfortunately, quite a few fantasy owners missed it, as Kennedy was dropped in 29 percent of leagues in the past week. Add him back if you want strikeouts.
Chicago White Sox right-hander Sergio Santos retired four New York Yankees on Monday for his first save of the season. The White Sox entered Monday with an MLB-worst one save as a team, as lefties Matt Thornton and Chris Sale have struggled. Santos, still unscored upon in 11 innings this season, should get more chances.
