Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Easy work in win
Kershaw (13-4) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five over five shutout innings to earn the win over the Giants on Saturday.
Kershaw didn't have to do much, as J.D. Martinez provided the Dodgers with three RBI over the first three innings. Since returning from the injured list in mid-August, Kershaw has given up just seven runs over 31 innings across seven appearances. The southpaw is now at a 2.42 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 132:38 K:BB through 126.1 innings over 23 starts. His 13 wins are his most in four years, while his innings count is the same as it was in 2022. Kershaw is expected to start once more in the regular season next weekend in a rematch with the Giants at Oracle Park.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Workload stays light Saturday
Kershaw allowed two hits and two walks while striking out four over four scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Saturday.
Kershaw was coming off of having his turn skipped due to a left shoulder issue. He ended up working a short start, throwing 56 pitches (34 strikes) before turning the ball over to Emmet Sheehan, who followed up with three more scoreless innings. Kershaw has dealt with the shoulder troubles throughout the second half of the campaign, and with the Dodgers clinching the NL West on Saturday, he may be given additional time off before the playoffs. He's pitched to a 2.52 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 127:36 K:BB through 121.1 innings over 22 starts this season, matching the number of appearances he's made in each of the previous two campaigns. He's tentatively projected for a home outing against the Giants his next time out.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Lined up for Saturday
Kershaw (shoulder) is expected to make his next start Saturday in Seattle, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Kershaw was skipped on his latest turn through the Dodgers' rotation, but manager Dave Roberts assured reporters Sunday that the veteran left-hander is not in danger of requiring a stint on the injured list. He's battled off-and-on shoulder issues for much of the second half but threw a bullpen session Tuesday without issue.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Next start pushed back
Kershaw will have his next start pushed back to Friday against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Kershaw was initially slated to start Monday against the Padres, but he'll be pushed back to late in the week. While the left-hander recently dealt with a shoulder issue, manager Dave Roberts emphasized Sunday that the move wasn't made due to a setback but rather to line up Kershaw's starts better late in the season. Gavin Stone will be called up to start Monday's matchup, with Ryan Yarbrough slated to hit the paternity list.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Pitching with bad shoulder
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Kershaw is pitching through "continued left shoulder trouble" but will play through the injury down the stretch, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Roberts added that Kershaw's shoulder is affecting both his velocity and command. However, giving him an extended rest between starts wouldn't help the issue, so Kershaw will continue to pitch as scheduled in the Dodgers' rotation unless his condition worsens. The 35-year-old ace gave up three runs over five innings during his start Tuesday against Miami and didn't factor into the decision en route to a Marlins victory.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Cruises to 12th win
Kershaw (12-4) allowed a run on three hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Diamondbacks.
The Dodgers took control of this game early, so Kershaw was pulled with 79 pitches (42 strikes). He wasn't at his sharpest, but he was good enough to collect his second win in four starts since returning from a shoulder injury. The southpaw has allowed four runs over 17 innings in that span. He's now at a 2.48 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 120:29 K:BB through 112.1 innings over 20 starts this season. If the Dodgers keep giving him ample run support, he may continue to see shorter outings down the stretch to stay fresh for the postseason. Kershaw is lined up for a challenging home start against Atlanta this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Start halted by rain
Kershaw allowed one run on one hit while striking out four batters over two innings against Cleveland on Wednesday in a game that was suspended due to rain.
Kershaw seemed to have his stuff working early, racking up eight swinging strikes on 33 pitches and getting each of his final four outs via strikeout. He allowed a solo homer to Jose Ramirez in the first inning but held a 3-1 lead after two frames before the contest was halted and then suspended due to rain. Perhaps the short outing will be positive for Kershaw in the long run, as he's dealt with multiple injuries over the past few seasons and was making just this third start Wednesday since returning from an injury absence that lasted about six weeks. The Dodgers and Guardians will resume the suspended contest Thursday, but Kershaw obviously won't pitch in that contest and thus won't factor into the decision.... See More ... See Less

With the Dodgers comfortably in the driver's seat in the NL West, it's no surprise they're taking it easy on Kershaw down the stretch. He's at a 2.48 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 111:26 K:BB through 105.1 innings over 18 starts. He's projected to make his next start on the road in Cleveland.... See More ... See Less

The legendary southpaw looked good in his return, limiting the Rockies to one run on an Elehuris Montero solo shot in the fifth inning. Kershaw tossed 45 of 67 pitches for strikes and lowered his season ERA to 2.51. The Dodgers figure to allow Kershaw to ease back into things with an eye toward the postseason, though the future Hall of Famer has long had a knack for going deep into games without racking up a ton of pitches....

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Activated for start
The Dodgers reinstated Kershaw (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start Thursday against the Rockies, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Kershaw has been on the IL since July 3 due to inflammation in his left shoulder. The 35-year-old lefty put up an incredible 1.09 ERA and 0.88 WHIP through 33 innings across his last five starts before getting injured, though it's possible Kershaw shows a little bit of rust after not pitching in over a month.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Trending toward Thursday return
Kershaw (shoulder) completed a bullpen session Sunday and appears on track to return from the 15-day injured list to start Thursday versus the Rockies at Dodger Stadium, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Kershaw checked out fine following a simulated game this past Thursday, and assuming his shoulder responds well to the bullpen session, his next time on the mound will come this week with the Dodgers. As Vassegh notes, Kershaw typically throws his bullpen sessions three days before his starts, making Thursday his likeliest date for a return to the Dodgers rotation. Kershaw has resided on the IL since July 3 due to an inflamed left shoulder.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Kershaw (shoulder) is on track to return from the 15-day injured list next week, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.
Kershaw faced live hitters in another successful simulated game Thursday at Dodger Stadium as he continues to take positive steps forward in his recovery from a bout of left shoulder inflammation.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Slated for another sim game
Kershaw (shoulder) will face hitters in another simulated game Thursday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Kershaw tossed three simulated innings Saturday and will require at least one more throwing session before he's cleared to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation.
