Yankees RHP Kennedy to throw batting practice

TAMPA, Fla. - Yankees pitcher Ian Kennedy will throw batting practice Wednesday for the first time since surgery May 12 to remove an aneurysm from beneath his right biceps.
    Kennedy said he felt great after throwing 45 pitches off a mound Monday. The right-hander will make 30 pitches during Wednesday’s session. He also is scheduled to face hitters Saturday and the following Tuesday.
    The 24-year-old Kennedy was pitching for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when he experienced numbness in his pitching hand earlier this season. He is set to pitch in September’s instructional league and afterward 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.
