Fri, Feb 14th
 Driveline Baseball is well-known for progressing the evolution for pitchers in regards to increase in velocity while building strength, resulting in a healthier season. Visiting Driveline could only be a positive component this upcoming season for the soon-to-be 32-year-old.
Matthew Davis

Jon Morosi of MLB.com writes the Angels have expressed interest in trading for Mike Clevinger.

Notes 
 Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Clevinger sustained a partial medial meniscus tear in his left knee on February 14th and underwent surgery. Although his 6-8 week timetable made it highly unlikely that he'd be back for Opening Day, the postponement of the season means that Clevinger should be ready to go when the bell rings. That should make him a top-12 pitcher at worst.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  One of my favorite pitchers in the league, but beginning the season hurt is never a good thing as you never know if and when he will be back healthy. Risky pick at ADP.
