SP - LAD - IL15
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told the MLB Network that SP Clayton Kershaw is still "a couple weeks away" from throwing a bullpen session.
The 34-year-old lefty had a stellar 2022 campaign before landing on the IL. Hopefully, when he returns, he will pick back up where he left off for fantasy managers, who certainly could benefit from his 1.80 ERA and 0.73 WHIP.
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) is set to miss more time than originally expected as he has not seen the relief that was expected from the epidural.
Kershaw received an epidural to reduce the pain in his pelvis but it has not worked as hoped so he will now see his rehab delayed as he will not not throw the bullpen session that was planned for Wednesday. For now the starting pitcher can remain on managers IL's and managers may want to find a longer term solution at pitcher as this may stretch out depending on how the rest of his rehab goes.
Clayton Kershaw played catch on Sunday and is expected to do so again on Monday before throwing a bullpen session on Wednesday.
Kershaw was reportedly feeling a little sore after playing catch on Sunday. We will see how Monday goes and especially Wednesday with the bullpen session to see where he is in his recovery at that point.
Clayton Kershaw has been placed on the injured list due to inflammation in his SI joint per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic.
Kershaw's pelvic injury will force him to miss Friday's scheduled start on top of the recovery timeframe that is yet to be known. The 34-year-old has been excellent to begin the 2022 season, going 4-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 30 innings pitched.
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw pitched seven innings on Saturday, striking out two, walking one, and allowing five hits for zero earned runs in the Dodgers' 7-0 win over the Cubs.
Kershaw was terrific on Saturday allowing zero runs to cross the plate dropping his ERA to 1.80 on the season. The Dodgers starting pitcher made it through seven innings on Saturday with just 81 pitches, 58 of which were for strikes. It seems the CY Young Kershaw time has passed but the Dodgers are certainly getting the most out of him in his age 34 season as he already has four wins with zero losses thus far.
