Adam Kennedy is planning to make a comeback attempt in 2014, according to MLBTradeRumors.com.
Kennedy sat out the 2013 season after failing to attract interest and seems doubtful to change his fate this winter. The 37-year-old middle infielder batted just .262/.345/.357 in 86 games with the Dodgers in 2012. Wed, Dec 11, 2013 03:31:00 PM

Adam Kennedy's agent, Tim Trafficanda, told MLB Trade Rumors that he is having discussions with three or four teams about his client.

Kennedy, who turns 37 on Thursday, batted .262/.345/.357 with two homers and a .702 OPS in 201 plate appearances with the Dodgers last season. While he got a guaranteed major league deal last offseason, he's far from a lock to get one this winter.

Dodgers placed INF Adam Kennedy on the 60-day disabled list with a strained right groin.

Adam Kennedy could miss the rest of the season due to a strained right groin.

Dodgers placed INF Adam Kennedy on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin.

Kennedy suffered the injury during Tuesday's game while taking a swing but actually finished the at-bat and wound up singling. He also dealt with a right groin strain during spring training, as well. It's not clear how long he'll be out.

Adam Kennedy hit his first homer of 2012 off Arizona's Josh Collmenter on Friday.

Kennedy's homer came in his 119th at-bat. He hit seven in 380 at-bats for the Nationals last season, but that was above the norm for him. Ideally, the Dodgers would have a better option to start at third base against righties. Ideally, they wouldn't have spent $20 million on Juan Uribe.

Adam Kennedy went 4-for-4 with a double and a walk Friday in the Dodgers' 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

Adam Kennedy will bat fifth on Thursday night against the Padres.

Yes, the same Adam Kennedy who is hitting .179 (7-for-39) this year and has a lowly .637 OPS dating back to the start of the 2010 season. That's life without Matt Kemp (hamstring) for you. OBP machine A.J. Ellis, who batted fifth on Monday and Tuesday, is back in the starting lineup Thursday in the No. 7 spot.

Adam Kennedy (groin) is scheduled to serve as the designated hitter in a minor league game Saturday.

Kennedy hasn't played since suffering a right groin strain during Sunday's game. If all goes well on Saturday, he could return to the Cactus League lineup as soon as Sunday. The 36-year-old signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Dodgers this offseason after batting .234/.277/.355 with seven homers and 38 RBI last season with the Mariners. He is expected to serve as a utility infielder this season.

He is expected to serve as a utility infielder with the Dodgers in 2012.
