Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Unlikely to start Opening Day
Kershaw (shoulder) isn't expected to be ready to start Opening Day, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Kershaw continues to progress through his throwing program, although this news isn't all that unexpected, seeing as he's yet to face live hitters halfway through March. With the Dodgers' ace likely on the shelf, look for either Walker Buehler or Hyun-Jin Ryu to get the nod to kick off the 2019 campaign. Manager Dave Roberts hasn't ruled out the possibility of Kershaw pitching in the first week of the regular season, however, and he even added that he would think about allowing Kershaw to make a "non-traditional start" followed by long relievers, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.
