  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Resumes light throwing

    Kershaw (back) threw a baseball at "really light intensity" Wednesday, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports. The activity was minimal -- Kershaw made only a handful of throws -- but it was nonetheless a positive sign that the All-Star hurler is feeling better after receiving an epidural shot Friday for his ailing back. An MRI last week didn't show anything concerning, so it appears that Kershaw could return by the end of the month. However, the Dodgers are 16 games up in the NL West, so they have no reason to rush their ace back into action. It's likely that they'll take a conservative approach to Kershaw's recovery to ensure that he's fully healthy before returning.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Receives epidural shot

    Kershaw (back) received an epidural injection Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that there is no timeline for when Kershaw will resume a throwing program. The starter for the National League All-Star team this season, Kershaw posted a 5.27 ERA in his first three starts out of the break before landing on the injured list. An MRI yielded favorable results, showing nothing new in Kershaw's lower back.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: MRI reveals best-case results

    Kershaw's MRI on his back didn't reveal anything new, which manager Dave Roberts called a best-case scenario, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. He was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday with lower-back pain and won't be eligible to be activated until Aug. 20. Kershaw will go the rest-and-rehab route and the hope is that he can return to the rotation in short order. Ryan Pepiot is expected to slot into the rotation in Kershaw's spot next week.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Getting MRI on back

    Kershaw is getting an MRI on his lower back and will miss 2-to-4 weeks, according to manager Dave Roberts, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. That timeline is not rock solid, considering the Dodgers are still awaiting the results of the MRI. However, Kershaw was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday, so he will miss at least two weeks. Ryan Pepiot was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday for Triple-A Oklahoma City and is the presumptive rotation replacement for Kershaw.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Hits injured list

    Kershaw (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list as expected Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Kershaw exited his start Thursday against the Giants with lower-back pain and will now miss at least two more turns in the rotation. The Dodgers sounded optimistic that he wouldn't be in line for a long absence, but the team currently holds a 12.5-game lead in the NL West, so there's little reason to rush him back. Off days Monday and Thursday mean the Dodgers could put off the question of who replaces Kershaw in the rotation for several days.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Trip to injured list expected

    Kershaw's back injury is expected to send him to the injured list, though the Dodgers remain optimistic that his absence won't be a long one, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Kershaw left his start Thursday against the Giants with pain in his lower back. An X-ray failed to reveal much Friday, so he'll undergo an MRI as well. Regardless of the result of that test, it looks like Kershaw will miss at least a pair of starts, but it's possible he doesn't wind up missing much more than that.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Tests coming Monday

    Kershaw will undergo medical testing on his back Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Kershaw exited his start Thursday against the Giants after feeling "something lock up" in his lower back during his warmup throws prior to the fifth inning. There should be a better idea of the severity of the issue after Kershaw is examined Friday, but manager Dave Roberts said that a stint on the injured list is "not out of the question."

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Dealing with low-back pain

    Kershaw exited Thursday's game against the Giants due to low-back pain. Kershaw appeared to indicate that he was dealing with a back injury as he walked off the mound prior to the fifth inning Thursday, and the Dodgers later confirmed the diagnosis. The left-hander will presumably be monitored in the coming days, especially considering his history of back injuries. If he's able to pitch through the issue, he tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Twins on Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Departs with back injury

    Kershaw was removed from Thursday's game against the Giants ahead of the fifth inning due to a back injury, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Kershaw tweaked his back while warming up ahead of the fifth inning Thursday, and he walked off the field before trainers were able to reach the mound. Prior to his departure, the southpaw allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four in four innings. Kershaw has dealt with back issues throughout his career and missed nearly a month due to right SI joint inflammation earlier in 2022. However, it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time due to his current injury.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Hits snag in sixth inning

    Kershaw (7-3) took the loss Saturday in Colorado, allowing five runs (three earned) on eight hits and a hit batter while striking out three in 5.1 innings. Kershaw was shaky early on, giving up a pair of runs after a two-out error in the first inning. He faced one more than the minimum over the next four frames before the Rockies mounted a three-run rally in the sixth that sent the southpaw to his first loss in over a month. Kershaw has given up nine runs (seven earned) in 9.2 innings over his last two starts -- he gave up more than two runs only twice in the first half of the campaign. He now has a 2.66 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 84:14 K:BB through 81.1 innings in 14 starts overall. The veteran will look to get back on track next week in a projected road start in San Francisco.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Short outing Sunday

    Kershaw allowed four runs on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 4.1 innings, taking a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Giants. Kershaw was inefficient, needing 94 pitches (60 strikes) to record 13 outs. He was relieved by Yency Almonte after allowing a game-tying, two-run home run to Darin Ruf in the fifth inning. This was only the third time Kershaw's failed to complete five frames this season, and it was also the third time he's allowed more than two runs. The 34-year-old southpaw still has a 2.49 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 81:14 K:BB through 76 innings in 13 starts. He's lined up for a road start in Colorado next weekend.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Masterful in win

    Kershaw (7-2) allowed one hit and struck out six across eight shutout innings, earning the win Friday over the Angels. The All-Star southpaw showed exactly why he was named to this year's Midsummer Classic with a masterful performance Friday. He carried a perfect game through seven innings before Luis Rengifo led off the eighth with a double, which was the only hit Kershaw allowed in this start. He's been particularly strong in July, allowing just two runs (one earned) in 22.2 innings while racking up 24 strikeouts in his last three starts. Kershaw trimmed his ERA to 2.13 and his WHIP to 0.91 after Friday's start, and he's added a 75:12 K:BB in 71.2 innings across 12 games overall.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Stellar again Saturday

    Kershaw (6-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and no walks with 10 strikeouts in 7.2 innings, earning the win over the Cubs on Saturday. Kershaw worked into the eighth inning for the first time since last June. This was the ninth time in 11 starts he's limited opponents to two or fewer runs, and he's now logged six quality starts in 2022. He's in vintage form in July with only one earned run, nine hits and a walk allowed in 14.2 innings over his last two starts. The 34-year-old southpaw has a 2.40 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 69:12 K:BB through 63.2 innings overall, and he's projected for a road start versus the Angels next weekend.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Gem goes to waste

    Kershaw allowed four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over seven shutout innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Sunday. Kershaw allowed only one runner to get past second base (Jose Azocar on a ground rule double) in a brilliant bounce-back performance. Through 10 games this year, Kershaw has permitted multiple runs only three times, and he's also tossed three starts of seven shutout innings. His eight strikeouts were also his second-best total of the year. The southpaw has a strong 2.57 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 59:12 K:BB through 56 innings. He's projected for a favorable home start versus the Cubs next week.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Gives up six runs in loss

    Kershaw (5-2) gave up six earned runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out four over four innings to take the loss in a 7-4 defeat to the Rockies on Tuesday. Kershaw had his worst start of the year, giving up a season-high number of hits, walks and earned runs. The walks were especially surprising given Kershaw's reputation for having excellent control. He picked the wrong venue to lose the strike zone, as Coors Field is notorious for punishing pitchers and Tuesday was no different. The Rockies took the veteran left-hander deep twice en route to tagging him with his second loss in nine starts. Look for him to take the mound Sunday against the Padres.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Earns fifth win

    Kershaw (5-1) allowed one earned run on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Reds. Kershaw surrendered his only run in the fourth inning, when he allowed the first three batters he faced to reach base. He was dominant otherwise and worked efficiently, needing only 80 pitches to record his 18 outs. This was also Kershaw's longest start since being activated from the injured list June 11, and he's given up only four earned runs across 15 innings in three starts since. Overall, Kershaw has maintained a 2.00 ERA with an impeccable 47:7 K:BB across 45 frames on the season.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Takes no-decision

    Kershaw allowed one run on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision versus the Guardians on Friday. Kershaw built up to 81 pitches (56 strikes) in his second start back from a pelvic injury, and he looked pretty solid. His fastball was mainly between 88 and 91 mph, right in line with his 90.6 mph average velocity entering Friday. The southpaw has a 2.08 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 40:6 K:BB across 39 innings in seven starts this year. He's allowed one or zero runs in five of his outings, and he'll look to keep getting up to a full workload next week in Cincinnati.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Tagged with loss in return

    Kershaw (4-1) took the loss against San Francisco on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four batters over four innings. Kershaw was expected to be capped at 70 pitches in his first major-league start in over a month, and that proved to be accurate as the left-harder finished with 71 pitches over four frames. He wasn't as sharp as he had been prior to hitting the injured list, as this was only the second time this season that he's given up more than one run or issued multiple walks. Kershaw was nonetheless able to limit the damage against him to a pair of second-inning runs, and he'll likely be allowed to raise his pitch count in his next start.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Limited to 70 pitches

    Kershaw will be on a pitch count of approximately 70 pitches Saturday against the Giants, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. It's no surprise to see the veteran lefty treated carefully in his first start back following a month-long absence due to a pelvic injury. He made just a single rehab start and threw just 59 pitches across four innings, so the Dodgers won't want to add significantly to that total in his return. The pitch count decreases Kershaw's fantasy value for this particular start, though he still has a chance to pitch long enough to secure a win if he's particularly efficient.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Activated ahead of Saturday's start

    Kershaw (pelvis) was activated from the injured list ahead of Saturday's start against the Giants, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. He missed about a month with the injury and needed just one rehab start, in which he struck out seven over four innings. Kershaw has a 1.80 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 30 innings this season.
