    • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Picks up third win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kershaw (3-0) allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings en route to a victory over the Padres on Tuesday. All three runs Kershaw allowed came by way of the home run, including a 423-foot blast to center by former teammate Manny Machado. Still, the former MVP and Cy Young Award winner navigated his way to a fourth quality start in five outings this season and earned his third win in his last four games. Kershaw's velocity and strikeouts may be down this season, but he remains one of the most feared lefties in the game. He'll carry a 3.40 ERA and 0.96 WHIP into his next scheduled start against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

    • Kershaw (2-0) picked up the win in Wednesday's 9-4 victory over Atlanta, allowing four runs on nine hits and a walk over 6.2 innings while striking out four. This was far from vintage Kershaw, but the Dodgers put runs on the board in five separate innings and slugged three homers to give the southpaw more than enough offensive support. He'll take a 3.31 ERA and 31:6 K:BB through 32.2 innings into his next start Tuesday, at home against the Padres.

    • Kershaw allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Friday. Manny Machado touched Kershaw up for a two-run homer in the first inning, and Ian Kinsler followed suit with a solo shot in the third. Kershaw was solid otherwise and once again completed six innings, so he's turned in quality starts in all four outings so far since coming off the injured list. Kershaw is in line to face the Braves at home next week.

    • Kershaw allowed two runs on two hits with seven strikeouts and four walks across six innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Sunday. While Kershaw induced 17 swinging strikes and punched out seven, he also uncharacteristically struggled with control and had to work around four walks. Still, the 31-year-old pitched more than well enough to win, but the Dodgers bullpen blew the lead in the eighth. Even though Kershaw is still awaiting his first decision of 2019, he has a 2.77 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 13 innings. His next scheduled start is home against the Pirates on Saturday.

    • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Pushed back one day
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kershaw will start Sunday against the Brewers, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports. Kershaw was initially scheduled to start Saturday, but with Hyun-jin Ryu (groin) scheduled to make his return from injury, Kershaw's start will now be pushed back to Sunday. The veteran ace looked good in his season debut Monday, giving up two earned over seven innings with six strikeouts.
