  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Can't hold early lead

    Kershaw allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six batters over five innings in a no-decision against Tampa Bay on Saturday.

    Kershaw looked good through three scoreless frames and carried a 3-0 lead into the fourth. However, the Rays converted a walk and two hits into two runs in that inning before taking the lead on a Harold Ramirez two-run homer in the fifth. Kershaw's outing ended after five frames and 83 pitches, marking the third straight outing during which he's had a relatively early exit. The veteran southpaw has allowed 10 runs over 12.2 innings over that span, pushing his season ERA up to 3.32. Kershaw is still piling up strikeouts -- he has 34 across his past 24.1 frames -- but he's uncharacteristically issued 11 free passes during that span after walking just five batters across his first 38 innings this season.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Activated from bereavement list

    Kershaw was activated from the bereavement list Friday.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Goes on bereavement

    Kershaw was placed on the bereavement list by the Dodgers on Monday, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Kershaw's mother recently passed, so he'll have some time for mourning. He is not expected to miss a start, putting the lefty in line to take the ball this weekend in Tampa Bay.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: In line to make next start

    Manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Kershaw will be placed on the bereavement list in the coming days but will make his next start, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Kershaw will spend the next few days with his family following the recent passing of his mother, but he isn't expected to miss any starts. The southpaw started Sunday against the Cardinals and allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six in 3.2 innings. Assuming he rejoins the team when expected, his next start lines up for next weekend in Tampa Bay.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Preparing to start Sunday

    Kershaw said he plans to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Cardinals, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Kershaw is expected to be placed on the bereavement list following the recent death of his mother, but he will be back with the club this weekend in time for his next scheduled start. The future Hall of Famer covered a season-low four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strikes out seven in loss

    Kershaw (6-3) took the loss Tuesday versus the Twins, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven in four innings.

    It's understandable if Kershaw wasn't feeling 100 percent after his mother's death Saturday, and it remains possible he could go on the bereavement list this week. Tuesday's start was his shortest outing of the season, though he was still able to put in a reasonable effort. He has a 2.52 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 63:11 K:BB over 53.2 innings through nine starts. Should he step away from the team, Kershaw would be absent for 3-7 days, so there's no guarantee he'd be available to pitch on normal rest this weekend versus the Cardinals.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Still starting Tuesday

    Kershaw will start Tuesday against the Twins despite the recent death of his mother, but he could head to the bereavement list after the outing, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Kershaw won't immediately step away from the team after his mother passed away Saturday, but he could understandably still take some time after starting Tuesday's contest. The veteran left-hander wouldn't necessarily have to miss a start if placed on the bereavement list, though the Dodgers are likely to provide him as much time as he needs.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Stifles Brewers in win

    Kershaw (6-2) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings in an 8-1 victory over the Brewers. He struck out eight without walking a batter.

    Aside from a William Contreras solo shot in the fourth inning, Kershaw was dominant, generating 18 swinging strikes among his 92 pitches. The 35-year-old southpaw is showing he still has plenty left in the tank, posting a 2.36 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 56:10 K:BB through his first 49.2 innings of 2023 with six quality starts in eight outings. He'll look to keep rolling when he next takes the mound, likely at home against the Twins early next week.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Will get start Wednesday

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Friday that Kershaw will start Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Matthew Moreno of reports.

    Kershaw, who is also starting Friday, will start Wednesday's contest after Gavin Stone was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after a disappointing MLB debut against the Phillies. Kershaw has been excellent in 2023, and he'll be making that start against the Brewers on regular rest.

  • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Not great Friday

    Kershaw (5-2) took the loss Friday versus the Padres, allowing four runs on eight hits and five walks with seven strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Kershaw threw just 56 of 94 pitches for strikes, and he was tagged for a pair of home runs by Fernando Tatis. Kershaw was bumped up a day with the Dodgers opting to give Dustin May more time between outings, but this was still an appearance on regular rest for the veteran. It's the first time this season Kershaw's failed to complete six innings, and he now has a 2.53 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 48:10 K:BB across 42.2 innings over seven starts. Manager Dave Roberts confirmed Kershaw for a road start Wednesday versus the Brewers prior to Friday's game, per Matthew Moreno of
