REPORT: Ian Kennedy rejecting Padres’ qualifying offer

San Diego Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy

Had Ian Kennedy accepted the qualifying offer the San Diego Padres made to him, he would be paid $15.7 million for the 2016 MLB season. That would have been a nice raise from the $9.85 million he made in 2015.

Instead, the Padres will received draft pick compensation for Kennedy if and when he signs a contract with another team.
