Kershaw efficient in spring debut for Dodgers

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Clayton Kershaw retired all six batters he faced in his spring debut, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1 on Thursday. Kershaw struck out three, including White Sox slugger Jose Abreu looking on a slow curve. ''It felt good. The first one is just good to get out there and make sure you feel good physically,'' Kershaw said. ''The results...

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw ready for redemption

The 2014 baseball season for Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw saw the highest of highs, but ended with the lowest of lows. The height was a regular season in which Kershaw posted a 21-3 record with a 1.77 ERA making him the only player in MLB history to lead the league in ERA four straight seasons.

Los Angeles Dodgers rumors: Cole Hamels edition

Just like every year: Clayton Kershaw, Cy Young winner

Like there was ever any question. Of course Clayton Kershaw was going to win the NL Cy Young award, and despite some worry that someone would foolishly toss a vote to Adam Wainwright or Johnny Cueto, of course he was going to win it unanimously. Like with Hanley Ramirez receiving and then declining the qualifying offer, it’s fun to have situations where it’s so clear what...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw and more

On Tuesday, Clayton Kershaw was rolling. He was wheeling and dealing. The breaking ball of the Los Angeles Dodger ace was fooling so many hitters in that St. Louis Cardinal lineup. Pitching on three days rest, the only hit he gave up within the first six innings was to right fielder Randal Grichuk. The Dodgers were up 2-0, and it looked like the National League Division Series was...

Los Angeles Dodgers win the biggest series of the season

That series went exactly as planned right? The Los Angeles Dodgers went into San Francisco and took two of three games, extending their NL West lead to three games over the Giants. The Dodgers won starts by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, and lost to Giants’ ace Madison Bumgarner. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
