Appier went just two innings in his last start on Saturday and left the
contest after throwing only 52 pitches. He is 1-2 with a 7.36 earned run
average in four starts this season.
The 35-year-old righthander had previously been on the DL just three times in
his first 14 seasons.
Appier is in his second season with Anaheim. He was 14-12 with a 3.92 ERA last
year. The veteran spent 11 1/2 seasons with Kansas City before being traded to
Oakland at the deadline in 1999, then joined the New York Mets for the 2001
season before being dealt to Anaheim for Mo Vaughn.
Kennedy, meanwhile, was injured in an April 2 game after colliding with Tim
Salmon while chasing a fly ball into shallow right field against Texas. He
went on the DL five days later.
The 27-year-old entered Tuesday's action hitting .286 with an RBI in six
games. Last year, he batted .312 with 52 RBI to go along with 17 stolen bases
and 65 runs while helping the Angels win the World Series.
