Clayton Kershaw settles for no-decision in dominant outing

Clayton Kershaw allowed just one run over nine innings on Tuesday, giving up just three hits while striking out 10. Kershaw did not factor into the decision in the game, which was not decided until the 13th inning.

Fantasy Impact

Kershaw was masterful on the night, but Lance Lynn was equal to the task, denying Kershaw his eighth victory on the season. Kershaw now has just a 2.01 ERA and 0.82 WHIP, and easily remains the best pitcher in the game for both real and fantasy purposes. He'll get another shot at the Cardinals in his next start.

Clayton Kershaw allows three hits; strikes out five

Clayton Kershaw allowed three hits, did not walk a batter, and struck out five in seven innings Wednesday in San Francisco. 63-of-89 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

Kershaw is now sporting a 2.15 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and has struck out 62 batters in 62 2/3 innings. The swinging strike rate and K/9 are both down, but that notches him down from amazing to just great. As of now, Kershaw is next scheduled to face the Cardinals at home.

Clayton Kershaw notches sixth win; strikes out four

Clayton Kershaw allowed seven hits, two earned runs, walked one, and struck out four in seven innings Friday in Colorado. 58-of-85 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

The four strikeouts were a season-low, but it was a solid outing, especially considering that the last time Kershaw visited Colorado he allowed three home runs. Kershaw now has a 2.43 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 57 strikeouts in 55 2/3 innings. He is next scheduled to pitch in San Francisco.

Clayton Kershaw dominates Padres; strikes out nine

Clayton Kershaw allowed five hit (one home run), one earned run, walked four, and struck out nine in 7 1/3 innings Saturday night against the San Diego Padres. 75-of-118 pitches were thrown for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

The home run was given up in the eighth inning to pinch-hitter Ryan Schimpf, a lefty who is now 2-for-4 with two home runs in his career against Kershaw. He now has a 2.40 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings. Kershaw has allowed seven home runs and seven walks, though. He allowed eight home runs and 11 walks all of last season. Kershaw is next scheduled to start in Colorado to face the Rockies, a team that ranks 6th in wOBA against LHP.

Clayton Kershaw will pitch Saturday

Clayton Kershaw will pitch Saturday. Brandon McCarthy will pitch Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy reportedly "tweaked his shoulder" working in the weight room. Kershaw will pitch on four days rest, instead of the five that was initially scheduled. In his career, there's been no discernible difference in pitching on four days rest. The concern should be with McCarthy. It doesn't sound too serious, considering he's just being moved back one day. With that said, it is a tweak in the shoulder.
