  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Won't throw Wednesday after all

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw (pelvis) won't complete a bullpen session Wednesday as originally planned while the southpaw continues to experience discomfort following a recent epidural, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The Dodgers were hoping the epidural would clear out the inflammation and soreness Kershaw was experiencing in his right SI joint, but the injection has apparently taken longer than anticipated to yield the desired effect. As a result, Kershaw looks like he'll be delayed at least a couple days as he aims to advance to the next phase of his throwing program, but he doesn't yet appear to be dealing with any sort of major setback.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Bullpen session on tap

    Kershaw (pelvis) played catch Sunday and is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The veteran left-hander underwent an MRI on Friday and was cleared of structural damage after landing on the injured list with right SI joint inflammation, and his quick return to throwing is a good early sign for his recovery. Kershaw experienced some soreness after playing catch, though it may have been residual soreness from the epidural he recently received. He'll play catch again Monday in preparation of the bullpen session, and if all goes well over the next few days Kershaw could be in store a minimum-length stay on the shelf.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: MRI shows no structural damage

    Kershaw (pelvis) underwent an MRI on Friday which revealed no structural damage, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Kershaw landed on the injured list with right SI joint inflammation Friday, but initial reports indicate that the team believes he'll need a minimum-length absence. Tests back that up as well, so it looks as though he'll have a good chance to return before the end of the month.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Could return after minimal IL stint

    The Dodgers hope Kershaw (pelvis) will be able to return following a minimal stay on the 15-day IL, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Kershaw landed on the injured list with right SI joint inflammation Friday, but initial reports indicate the team doesn't seem overly concerned about his injury. However, the Dodgers will likely exercise caution with his recovery process since they've been insistent early in the year that their goal is to have the southpaw healthy enough to pitch in October. While Kershaw's IL stint adds to a growing list of absences over the last few years, it doesn't appear as though he's dealing with a long-term concern. Walker Buehler will take his place as Friday's starter against the Phillies, but the Dodgers haven't indicated who will take Kershaw's rotation spot.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Placed on 15-day injured list

    Kershaw was placed on the 15-day injured list with right SI joint inflammation Friday.

    Kershaw was initially slated to start Friday's game against the Phillies, but he's dealing with a pelvic issue that will force him to spend time on the injured list. Walker Buehler, who was scheduled to start Saturday, will be bumped up to start Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kershaw was off to a dominant start in 2022, posting a 1.80 ERA and 0.73 WHIP in 30 innings over his first five starts of the year. It's not yet clear when Kershaw will be able to return, but the team believes his injury is a short-term issue, Hoornstra reports.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Blanks Cubs for fourth win

    Kershaw (4-0) picked up the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, scattering five hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings. He struck out two.

    It wasn't a dominant effort by the veteran lefty, but Kershaw fired 58 of 81 pitches for strikes and kept the Cubs off-balance all day. The quality start was his third of the season, and Kershaw will carry a 1.80 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 32:3 K:BB through 30 innings into his next outing.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Breaks franchise strikeout record

    Kershaw did not factor into the decision in Saturday's loss to the Tigers. He allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings.

    By fanning Dustin Garneau in the third inning, Kershaw tied Hall of Famer Don Sutton for the most strikeouts in Dodgers history. An inning later, Kershaw struck out Spencer Torkelson for No. 2,697, passing Sutton on the all-time list. Kershaw has been tremendous through four starts this season, posting a 2.35 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 30:2 K:BB over 23 innings. He projects to take the ball next weekend at Wrigley Field.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Cruises to third victory

    Kershaw (3-0) got the win against San Diego on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits with three strikeouts in five innings.

    Kershaw kept San Diego off the bases for the most part and surrendered his lone run in the fourth inning after Los Angeles was already ahead 4-0. That's now wins in each of his first three starts for the 34-year-old, who possesses a 2.65 ERA, 0.59 WHIP and 23 strikeouts through 17 innings this season in what has been a vintage performance thus far. Kershaw is currently slated to take the Hill next Saturday against Detroit.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Notches second win

    Kershaw (2-0) earned the win over Atlanta on Monday, allowing four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven over five innings.

    The future Hall of Famer hurled seven perfect innings in his season debut last week, and through four scoreless frames Monday it looked like he would cruise to another dominant performance. Atlanta got to him for a run on a Guillermo Heredia homer in the fifth inning, however, then chased Kershaw after leading off the sixth with three straight hits. Los Angeles' bullpen was able to stem the tide, though, helping the left-hander to his second straight victory to begin the season. Despite finishing with four earned runs, there was plenty to like about Kershaw's performance, as he upped his season K:BB to 20:0 over 12 innings and induced 11 swinging strikes. He'll get the chance to continue to his standout start to the campaign this weekend in a scheduled start in San Diego.
