Kennon was hurt July 29 making a play on a fly ball in the first inning of an 11-1 loss to the Pirates. In a collision with a post holding the outfield fence, the Collierville, Tenn., native chipped his pelvis bone. He was taken to Regional Medical Center by ambulance but later transferred to Memphis for orthopedic treatment.
"He's on crutches," Marion Manager Steve Fowler said. "They're waiting for the swelling to go down to see if they need to put in pins."
Gordon Guess, general manager of the team, said Kennon was in a great deal of pain when he spoke with the 22-year-old over the phone.
"There are two cracks in is hip bone," Guess said, adding that Kennon has been working out as much as he can with the ailment. "They'll check back in three or four weeks to see how well he's healing."
Guess said doctors believe there is a chance proper healing can take place without inserting pins to stabilize the bone.
Kennon played his college baseball at Mid-Continent University in Mayfield.
