  • Clayton Kershaw's MRI Yields Best-Case Scenario

    Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said that left-hander Clayton Kershaw's (back) MRI exam didn't reveal anything new with his back and called it the "best-case scenario." Kershaw will rest and rehab after he was placed on the injured list on Friday. The future Hall of Famer was pulled from his outing early on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants due to lower back pain. Fantasy managers were likely very concerned at first, given his recent history with back issues, but it looks like this one might not be too significant. However, the Dodgers are unlikely to rush him back, as they'll want him fully healthy down the stretch and for the postseason. But barring any setbacks, Kershaw should pitch again before the regular season is over.

  • Clayton Kershaw Lands On Injured List

    The Los Angeles Dodgers officially placed left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) on the injured list on Friday. Skipper Dave Roberts said earlier in the day that it was likely that Kershaw would go on the injured list, although the team is hoping his back injury isn't all that serious. The 34-year-old future Hall of Famer left his start early on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants with lower back pain, which is a bit concerning given his history with back issues. Even if the injury isn't deemed serious, the Dodgers won't rush Kershaw back given their big lead over the San Diego Padres in the National League West. The Dodgers will want to keep the veteran southpaw fresh for down the stretch and into the playoffs. In 15 starts in 2022, Kershaw is 7-3 with a 2.64 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 88 strikeouts in 85 1/3 innings. Keep him stashed everywhere.

  • Clayton Kershaw Likely To Go On Injured List

    Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said that left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) will likely go on the injured list, but he's "optimistic in the sense that, it shouldn't be too long term of being down." Roberts said Kershaw had an X-ray on his back that "wasn't that telling," so he'll also have an MRI exam. The 34-year-old southpaw left his start against the San Francisco Giants early on Thursday with lower back pain, so fantasy managers should expect him to miss at least the next two weeks. The Dodgers have a double-digit lead over the San Diego Padres in the National League West, so there's really no reason for them to push Kershaw, especially considering his history with back issues.

The southpaw allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four in his four innings before exiting.

  • Clayton Kershaw Leaves Thursday's Game Early With Injury

Kershaw gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four in his four innings of work before departing. The 34-year-old has a history of back issues, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him land on the injured list. He also missed almost a month with SI joint inflammation earlier this year. The future Hall of Famer has been his normal solid self when on the mound this year, entering the day with a 2.66 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP and an 84:14 K:BB in 81 1/3 innings over his 14 starts. Stay tuned for more details on Kershaw's condition.
