Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Sunk by homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (13-3) suffered the loss against the Yankees on Sunday, hurling seven innings and giving up three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out 12.

Kershaw was mostly dominant in the nationally televised matchup, establishing a season high with 12 strikeouts while allowing only four hits. Unfortunately, three of those hits left the yard, sending the southpaw to his first home loss since April of 2018. Despite the disappointing outcome, Kershaw continued his late-season strikeout resurgence, as he has now whiffed 77 hitters over his last 57 innings after striking out 82 over his first 92 frames this season. The 31-year-old has been one of the most reliable starters in baseball in 2019, hurling six or more innings in each of his 23 appearances. He'll carry a 2.76 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 159:31 K:BB over 150 innings into his next start, on the road against Arizona on Saturday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Cruises to 13th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (13-2) picked up the win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits over six innings, striking out six and walking three in a 16-3 blowout victory for the Dodgers.

His offense stole the show, but Kershaw did in his part in tossing a quality start and picking up his 13th win of the season. It was his eighth quality start in a row, as the dominant lefty continues to log another impressive campaign, sporting a 2.71 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 147:31 K:BB across 143 innings.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strikes out 10 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (12-2) gave up no runs on two hits and no walks while striking out 10 through seven innings to take the win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

Kershaw came out dealing, striking out eight of the first nine batters he faced and not allowing a baserunner until the fifth inning. In an amazing run of consistency, the left-hander has pitched at least six innings in all 21 of his starts. Kershaw has a 2.63 ERA and 141 strikeouts this season and will make his next start Tuesday against the Blue Jays at Dodger Stadium.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Now starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers have pushed Kershaw back in their pitching schedule, with the southpaw now scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Marlins rather than in Tuesday's series opener in Miami, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

An explanation for the decision hasn't been provided, but the Dodgers may have just wanted to build in an extra day of rest for Kershaw after he cleared the 100-pitch plateau for only the fifth time this season in his most recent outing Aug. 6 versus the Cardinals. While he'll still draw the same opponent, the move back a day in the pitching schedule will deny Kershaw a two-start week. Instead, rookie Dustin May will take the hill Tuesday and lines up for a second turn Sunday in Atlanta.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Continues home dominance in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (11-2) pitched seven innings and allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine to earn the win over St. Louis on Tuesday.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner limited the Cardinals to a second-inning run to pick up his 11th win and 17th quality start of the season. He effectively kept hitters on their heels by inducing 18 swinging strikes and has now struck out nine or more batters in four of his last six outings after failing to do so in each of his first 14 starts. Not coincidentally, those six appearances represent the southpaw's best stretch this season, as he has gone 4-0 with a 1.63 ERA over that span. To add to the superlatives, Kershaw has been particularly effective at home, compiling an 8-0 record along with a 2.26 ERA and 81:15 K:BB over 79.2 innings this season. He'll head to Miami on Tuesday to take on the Marlins in his next scheduled start.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Walks five in 10th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (10-2) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Padres to two runs on six hits and five walks while striking out five over six innings.

Kershaw gave up a solo homer to Hunter Renfroe in the second inning and an RBI single to Manny Machado in the third while getting another solid day of run support from his offense to improve his career record against the Padres to 20-6. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old threw his 2,397th career strikeout to pass Sandy Koufax for third all-time in franchise history. Despite allowing a season-high five free passes, Kershaw has pitched at least six innings in every start this season and sports the sixth lowest ERA in the National League (2.85) to go with a 1.06 WHIP and 122:27 K:BB. Next, the left-hander will take the hill at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday for a matchup against the Cardinals.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strikes out nine in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (9-2) tossed six innings, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out nine in a 9-3 win over the Nationals on Saturday.

Kershaw allowed two runs in the first inning on a triple from Adam Eaton and a Juan Soto sacrifice fly but shut the door after that. He allowed just one more hit, an infield single to pitcher Joe Ross. It was another strong performance for the southpaw - and he lowered his ERA to 2.85 and WHIP to 1.02 over 117 innings. Kershaw next lines up to take on the Padres at home next Thursday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Posts six scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw tossed six innings, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out 10 but did not factor into the decision against the Marlins on Saturday.

Kershaw left the contest with a 6-0 lead, but the Dodgers' bullpen gave the lead away in the seventh and eighth innings, denying the ace what would have been his ninth win of the season. It was a vintage performance for the southpaw -- with the 10 strikeouts representing a season high -- and he shrank his ERA to 2.84 and WHIP to 1.02 over 111 innings. Kershaw will next lines up to take on the Nationals in Washington next Saturday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Wins eighth game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (8-2) allowed one run on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts across six innings to earn a victory against the Phillies on Monday.

The 31-year-old yielded a solo homer in the third, and that's it. Kershaw isn't quite the same pitcher he was, but he's putting together a very solid season. This was his eighth win, and he lowered his ERA to 3.00 after this outing. He also has a 1.05 WHIP, .234 batting average against and 98 strikeouts in 105 innings. Kershaw will pitch next against the Marlins at home Saturday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw took a no-decision in Friday's loss to the Padres, recording nine strikeouts and allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk over seven innings.

The 31-year-old looks to be back in All-Star form, posting a season-high nine strikeouts -- his most since last August against the Padres. Despite the solid outing, it was the first time the Dodgers lost a home game with Kershaw on the mound since August 13 of last season, snapping an 11-start streak. He will take a 3.09 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 91:16 K:BB into the All-Star break.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Fans seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (7-2) took the loss Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits over seven innings while striking out seven as the Dodgers were downed 5-3 by the Rockies.

The southpaw served up a two-run homer to Charlie Blackmon in the third inning but was otherwise solid early, and Kershaw was nursing a 3-2 lead before things fell apart for the Dodgers in the sixth. He'll take a 3.23 ERA and 82:15 K:BB through 92 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Padres.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Gives up four earned in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw threw six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Monday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits, striking out two and walking one in the Dodgers' 8-5 defeat.

Like counterpart Zack Greinke, Kershaw gave up three runs in the first inning, but managed to bounce back and make it through six frames and limit the damage to four earned. He did a nice job to rebound from the rough start, although the two strikeouts were a season-low total. Kershaw will take a 3.07 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and a 75:15 K:BB through 85 innings into his next start, which will pit him against the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Cruises in vintage performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (7-1) pitched seven scoreless innings against San Francisco on Tuesday to earn the win, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out six.

In classic Kershaw fashion, the left-hander threw 71 of 100 pitches for strikes and allowed only five hitters to reach base. In doing so, he picked up his 10th quality start in 11 appearances this season and improved his career record against the Giants to 23-11. Despite starting the season on the IL with an injured shoulder, Kershaw has once again posted All-Star quality numbers, complementing his 7-1 record with a 2.85 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 73:14 K:BB in 79 innings. He'll have another home start when he faces the Rockies on Sunday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Settles down to earn sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (6-1) took the win versus the Cubs on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight.

The Cubs got to Kershaw for a pair of runs in the first inning and another in the third, but the lefty settled down to hold Chicago scoreless for the remainder of his outing. In doing so, Kershaw improved his record to 6-1 and picked up his 10th quality start in 11 appearances this season. Kershaw's overall numbers may be down a tick from the period when he was the unquestioned best pitcher in baseball, but with a 3.13 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 67:12 K:BB, he remains in the upper echelon of major-league pitchers. He'll square off at home against the Giants on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Takes hard-luck loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (5-1) took the loss Friday versus the Giants, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out four batters.

Kershaw and Giants starter Drew Pomeranz engaged in a pitchers' duel for the first five innings. Kershaw then gave up a pair of runs in the sixth inning, which was enough to tag him with the loss. The left-hander owns a 3.14 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 10 starts this year. He'll look to rebound from his first defeat of the season against the Cubs on Thursday.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw allowed one run on six hits while striking out six over seven innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday.

Kershaw turned in a vintage performance before reliever Julio Urias gave up a two-run homer to Bryce Harper to deny Kershaw the win. The 31-year-old left-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his nine starts this year, posting a 3.20 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 59 innings. Kershaw carries a 5-0 record into Friday's start in San Francisco.

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Picks up fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (5-0) picked up the win against the Mets on Monday, giving up three earned runs on 10 hits over six innings, striking out five and walking one as the Dodgers bagged a 9-5 victory.

The 10 hits were a season high, but the left-hander still hurled a third straight quality start and moved his record to a perfect 5-0. Kershaw now sports a 3.46 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and a 49:9 K:BB through 52 innings. He lines up to take on the Phillies in his next start at home on Saturday.

May 22, 2019 01:52 PM
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Moves to 4-0
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kershaw (4-0) picked up the win against the Rays on Tuesday, giving up six hits and two earned runs over 6.1 innings, striking out eight and walking one as the Dodgers bagged a 7-3 victory.

Kershaw won for the fourth time in his last five starts, hurling a quality start against Tampa Bay. He now has a 3.33 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 44:8 K:BB through 46 innings. He might no longer provide the sub-2.00 ERA or ridiculous strikeout numbers he was capable of posting in the past, but so far the veteran has still been a plenty effective fantasy option since his return from injury. He's scheduled to take the mound next at home against the Mets on Monday.

May 15, 2019 06:20 PM
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

May 9, 2019 04:44 AM
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Carried by offense to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
