Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw strikes out 10

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:23:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw allowed one run on 10 hits in eight innings against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 21. He struck out 10 batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw has pitched at least seven innings in all four of his starts this season and has not allowed more than three runs in any game. Kershaw should be a starting option no matter which team he is facing.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw experimenting with changeup

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 17:04:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw threw two changeups during his victory over the San Diego Padres Monday, April 4. He had spent the preseason working on the pitch with retired RP Eric Gagne, who served as an instructor in spring training camp. Prior to this year, Kershaw had relied almost exclusively on a combination of fastballs, curveballs and sliders.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw allowed one hit and one walk over seven scoreless innings against the Friars, with nine strikeouts. He still considers the changeup to be his fourth-best pitch, so don't expect to see it very often for now. He is arguably the best pitcher in fantasy baseball and is a must-start option every time he takes the mound in daily fantasy contests.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw embarrasses Fathers

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 21:32:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw allowed just one hit and one walk over seven scoreless innings with nine strikeouts in a win Monday, April 4, against the San Diego Padres. He threw 61 of his 96 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw looked the part of fantasy ace in this one, as the Padres had very few answers. He was winless in three starts against San Diego last season, although he posted a 2.20 ERA in three outings with 27 strikeouts over 16 1/3 innings. It appears he is on track to dominate them again in 2016.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw sharp Sunday

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 18:10:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw struck out three over five scoreless innings in spring training Sunday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw has 10 strikeouts in 10 innings to go along with a 0.90 ERA this spring, and he should be the first pitcher off the board in all formats.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw starting opener

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 13:38:20 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw will start on Opening Day against the San Diego Padres Monday, April 4, according to manager Dave Roberts. Kershaw will also start the spring opener Thursday, March 4, against the Chicago White Sox. He's the first Dodgers starter to make six straight Opening Day starts since Don Sutton made seven.

Fantasy Tip: A real shocker here, folks.... not. Kershaw is head and shoulders the best pitching in baseball and is worth a top-five fantasy selection in the first round, typically after Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Paul Goldschmidt are taken.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw leads tentative rotation

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:41:45 -0800

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear to have set their starting rotation, with SP Clayton Kershaw leading the way. He would be followed by SP Scott Kazmir, SP Kenta Maeda, SP Brett Anderson and SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: The two K's, Kershaw and Kazmir, should go in the first half of most drafts. Kershaw will be among the top 10 selected in most drafts and could even be the first or second pitcher off the board.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw wins in Game 4

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 21:43:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw allowed one earned run, three hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win in Game 4 of the National League Division Series Tuesday, Oct. 13, against the New York Mets. He was working on short rest, too.

He is a must-start in FantasyScore, and you needn't worry about his struggles in the playoffs from the past.

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 14:21:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw will start Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the New York Mets Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: While the playoffs haven't been overly kind to Kershaw ($8,900, 17.8% of cap), he remains a high-end FantasyScore option and worthy of a long look for contests Tuesday. For his career, Kershaw owns a 4.99 ERA with a 1-6 record through his 12 playoff games.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw loses again

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 05:05:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw allowed three runs on four hits in 6 2/3 innings against the New York Mets in Game 1 of the National League Division Series Friday, Oct. 9. He struck out 11 batters and walked four in the game. Kershaw has lost each of his last five postseason starts.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) has been an outstanding regular season pitcher but has recently struggled during the postseason. He did not have a bad performance in Game 1 but struggled with some walks. Kershaw probably will start against the Mets again in the series if the Dodgers are not swept and could still be a starting option on FantasyScore.
