Clayton Kershaw (back) to be activated by end of August?

Clayton Kershaw (back) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Wednesday now that he has completed a second bullpen session.

Fantasy Impact

The best pitcher alive has been out since July 24th but there is now some light at the end of the tunnel for fantasy owners. He's far from out of the woods, but if Kershaw does indeed return by the end of August it'll be just in time for the fantasy playoffs.

Clayton Kershaw (back) expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks

Sources have informed Ken Rosenthal that the initial prognosis for Clayton Kershaw is that he will miss 4-to-6 weeks. However, the final time frame will not be made until after he sees Dr. Robert Watkins.

Fantasy Impact

If Kershaw misses 4-to-6 weeks it would put his return around the beginning of September which would only leave him with a handful of starts during the regular season. Fantasy owners should hold off determining what to do with Kershaw until Dr. Watkins gives his evaluation.

Clayton Kershaw likely heading to the 10-day DL

Clayton Kershaw is likely headed to the 10-day disabled list according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Impact

Kershaw threw two scoreless innings versus the Braves today before exiting with an apparent back issue. It isn't currently believed to be related to the herniated disc discomfort he dealt with a season ago, but it's certainly worrisome. More will be known on Monday but fantasy owners should expect to be without Kershaw for at least a couple of weeks.

Clayton Kershaw toys with the White Sox

Clayton Kershaw picked up the win on Tuesday, firing seven shutout innings while allowing seven hits and one walk. Kershaw also struck out seven.

Fantasy Impact

The 29-year-old is now 15-2 on the year with a 2.07 ERA. He seems well on his way to winning his fourth National League Cy Young award since 2011. In fantasy he's certainly been worth the first round pick that was used on him back on draft day.

Clayton Kershaw proving he's still the best pitcher in baseball

Clayton Kershaw threw a complete game on Sunday afternoon to finish the first half at 14-2. Kershaw struck out 13 while allowing two runs on just six hits. He didn't walk anyone.

Fantasy Impact

The best pitcher of our generation absolutely dominated the Royals today in vintage Kershaw fashion. He enters the All-Star break with a 2.18 ERA and a great chance at winning his first Cy Young since 2014. Kershaw is expected to see some additional rest after the break, so don't be surprised if he's not one of the first few Dodgers' starters of the second half.
