Kyle Kendrick, who was recently demoted to the minor leagues, made his first spring start with the Lehigh Vally IronPigs.
Kendrick allowed four runs in the first inning of the IronPigs’ 8-3 loss to the Yankees Triple-A team. In 3.1 innings of work, Kendrick allowed 5 earned runs on nine hits and 3 walks. He struck out two.
Kendrick said he’ll be back on the major league roster, but for now, he is going to need a little more work in the minors.
