Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts told the Chicago and national media on Monday that former Cy Young winner and ace Clayton Kershaw (back) is a candidate to start against the Mets over the weekend. In addition Kershaw returned to the mound today for work in a simulated game. Odds to Win 2018 Cy Young Awards (June 18).
Kershaw told the Los Angeles media today that everything went well during his three-inning simulated outing Monday. The Dodgers southpaw was quoted as saying “he will pitch somewhere in 4 or 5 days.” While the future Hall of Famer didn’t rule out returning to the big-league rotation against the Mets over the weekend the chances are good that Oklahoma City could well have the honor of watching Kershaw in Triple-A action before returning to the parent club rotation.
Kershaw tossed three-innings of work in the sim game. If the lefty comes out of the sim game without any Tuesday issues there is a chance he could in fact be pitching at new Shea this weekend. Worst case scenario is that Kershaw will be a part of the Dodgers rotation before the All-Star break, rather the end of June.
