The Opening Day starter for the Colorado Rockies hasn’t exactly thrown the ball well this year — is he going to stick around through the end of the season?

It’s no secret that the Colorado Rockies struggle every time Kyle Kendrick takes the mound. Forget the one inning start he had in the Rockies’ rain-delayed Atlanta Braves game two weeks ago; besides that not-really-outing, the Rockies are just 4-14 in his starts, and they had only won one of them since May 27.
That’s… really bad. Obviously. And after another bad outing on Tuesday, Kendrick now leads the league in both hits and home runs allowed. He’s not fooling anybody, striking out just 56 batters in over 100 innings.
How much more of this are the Rockies going to see this year?
Pretty straight forward on the poll here:
Tell us about your vote — either @RoxPileFS, or @BobbyDeMuro on Twitter, and as always, you can reach out below in the comments section to discuss Kendrick and the rest of the Rockies’ starting rotation.
Obviously, the options around Kendrick would be to keep him (eh), keep him and move him to the bullpen (eh?), designate him for assignment (and call up Jon Gray or somebody like that?), or, hell, maybe even trade him (but that would have to happen, like, really quickly over the next few days).
Whatever the case, there’s… there’s… there’s no way he can stay in the starting rotation the rest of the year… right?
