Clayton Kershaw News
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw had a rough outing against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. Kershaw pitched six innings and allowed seven hits, three walks and five earned runs while striking out six. He earned his fourth loss of the year to drop to 7-4 on the season. Kershaw had recorded two consecutive quality starts before Sunday's outing. He has a solid 3.33 ERA and 0.97 WHIP on the year. He'll look to bounce back from Sunday's loss in his next trip to the mound against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw shined in Tuesday's victory versus the Houston Astros. Kershaw only threw 81 pitches over 7 2/3 innings and allowed four hits, one run, zero walks and struck out six. He also had a 25% CSW with seven whiffs. The lefty could have gone longer into the ballgame, but the Dodgers were winning 8-1 at the time of his exit. Kershaw now has a 7-3 record to go with a 2.94 ERA and most importantly has been healthy this season. Next up will be a matchup versus the San Francisco Giants on Sunday and should be started every time that he is on the mound.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw picked up a no-decision on Wednesday evening versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. Kershaw went six innings and allowed two hits, two runs, one walk and struck out eight. The lefties only blemish was a two-run home run to Eduardo Escobar in the top of the fourth inning. Kershaw has been having a very good season and more importantly has been healthy. The lefty is now 6-3 with a 3.18 ERA. Next up for the veteran is a date against the Houston Astros on Tuesday.
Few players benefitted more from the shortened 2020 season than Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcherClayton Kershaw. He took full advantage of the lightened workload and threw a full season's worth of innings (58 1/3). He looked like the prime Kershaw in those frames, posting a 2.16 ERA, a 0.84 WHIP and raising his strikeout rate up to 28% after a few years of decline in that category. There are reasons not to believe in that high strikeout rate, as his contact rate stayed the same as his recent past and he did not change anything with his pitch arsenal. He also continued to lack velocity, averaging 92 mph on his fastball. While we should not expect another strikeout rate near 30%, you can take a minuscule walk rate and a strong ground-ball profile to the bank. Kershaw appears to have over-performed in 2020, and there are serious questions about how many innings he can handle in a full 2021 season. That puts him a little bit behind his current ADP (32), but he remains a very safe investment as a second fantasy starter.
