Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kershaw was named the Dodgers' Opening Day starter on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Per Gurnick, this marks Kershaw's seventh Opening Day start. While it's not a surprising announcement, it's noteworthy in the sense that manager Dave Roberts clearly has full confidence in the health of his ace's back. His back injury last season cost him several starts, but he still managed to post a 1.69 ERA with a 0.72 WHIP over 21 starts in 2016.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: 'No worries' about back heading into 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw said Wednesday that he has "no worries or concerns" about last year's back injury, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Kershaw followed up those statements by throwing his first bullpen session of the spring. The three-time Cy Young winner missed more than two months last season with a herniated disc in his back, but he showed no ill effects upon his return, allowing just four earned runs with a 27:2 K:BB in his final 28 regular-season innings. He's the unquestioned No. 1 arm once again in fantasy baseball drafts.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Will not participate in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kershaw will not participate in the World Baseball Classic, CBS Sports reports.

Kershaw is sitting this one out in hopes of staying as fresh as possible for the upcoming season. The Rays' Chris Archer should slide up the rotation and serve as the team's ace for the tournament. From a fantasy perspective, Kershaw remains the unanimous top pick on the pitching side of things.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: To start Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw is lined up to start Game 6 of the NLCS, FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports.

The Dodgers will apparently give Kenta Maeda the ball for Game 5, regardless of Wednesday's outcome in Game 4. Kershaw threw a bullpen session Wednesday, lining him up to start what could be a Game 6 clincher on an extra day's rest.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Starting Game 2 of NLCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw will start Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

He came in to close out Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday, and that will essentially serve as his bullpen session in between starts. Kershaw could now come back to start Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday and could also be available out of the bullpen in a potential Game 7 next weekend.
