And everyone thought the biggest arm the Dodgers *might* be getting back this season was Rich Hill when his gangrene blister heals.
Clayton Kershaw is feeling better after a recent throwing session, and has a plan in place for his return. He just won’t say what that plan entails.
“We’ve got a good plan in place to where I feel like I can contribute,” Kershaw said. “And, hopefully, if I’m pitching well enough, make a difference. Or, at least, help out.”
So after all the ambiguity and doubt; well, there’s more ambiguity of course. But it sounds like Kershaw is coming back this season. It’s good for baseball, and it makes the Dodgers a legitimate World Series threat. It sucks for fantasy owners that moved Kershaw because back surgery was oh so certain a short while ago.
But we’re glad Kershaw is feeling better and will have some say in this season. I still don’t recall a Kershaw postseason gem like the ones I remember Roy Halladay or others throwing, if there has been one. I need to go back and look.
Okay, I looked and there has been at least one.
