Former A's pitcher Kennedy dies at 28

Pitcher Joe Kennedy died early Friday while at home with his family in Florida, agent Damon Lapa confirmed.

Kennedy, 28, spent seven years in the majors, pitching for the A's, Diamondbacks and Blue Jays last season.

As a free agent, he was not affiliated with any team for 2008. Kennedy had a career record of 43-61 with a 4.79 ERA. He reached the postseason once, as a reliever with the A's in 2006.

"The cause of death is unknown at this time," Lapa said. "The best guess at this point is either a heart attack or a brain aneurysm. The way he died was sudden. There is no reasonable explanation for what happened."

Lapa said that an autopsy would be performed.
