'Quite likely' Kershaw starts NLDS Game 4 - Clayton Kershaw (S) Los Angeles Dodgers

Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that it appears quite likely the Dodgers would start Clayton Kershaw on short rest in a potential NLDS Game 4.

Looks like Kershaw would pitch on short rest

LOS ANGELES -- It appears quite likely that the Los Angeles Dodgers would bring Clayton Kershaw back on three days’ rest if their National League Division Series with the St. Louis Cardinals lasts four games. For one thing, there’s a precedent. Kershaw did just that with the Dodgers leading 2-1 over the Atlanta Braves last season, going six strong innings in their 4-3 win that sent them to the NLCS. For another, Kershaw threw a simulated game Sunday, four days after his final start of the regular season, a move seemingly intended to get his body used to short rest.

Start times announced for Games 1 and 2

LOS ANGELES – Shadows creep across the Dodger Stadium infield by the end of day games, which means they will be a factor for the first several innings of the National League Division series that gets underway Friday at 3:37 p.m. PT. The start time, announced Monday, could make it hard for hitters to pick up the spin on pitches and the two pitchers scheduled to start, Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals, happen to throw some of the best breaking balls in baseball.

Kershaw: 'The best in the game,' but good enough for MVP?

LOS ANGELES – It is looking increasingly likely Clayton Kershaw will become the first pitcher in 45 years to win the National League MVP award, and he is certainly deserving enough to be a rational choice. The Dodgers are 23-4 in games started by...

Stock Watch: Matt Kemp displaying old form

RISING Clayton Kershaw, LHP: He doesn’t like talking about the MVP award, so maybe it’s time we just stop asking him about it until after the season ends? Or, even better, until the results of voting are released in November. Ballots are due from members of the Baseball Writers Association of America as soon as the regular season ends, likely Sunday. Kershaw certainly didn’t do anything in the last week to hurt his chances, picking up victories No.

Just give Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw the NL MVP already

There’s been a great deal of discussion over whether Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw deserves to win both the Cy Young and the National MVP awards. On Wednesday night, as the Dodgers won the NL West with a 9-1 victory over San Francisco, he made a good case for taking home both awards by making a sterling, behind-the-back glove save in the third inning with runners at second and third and no one out and, with the Dodgers down 1-0, driving in a run — his third of the season — with a single in the fifth.

Dodgers, Kershaw beat SF Giants to clinch West title

By Henry Schulman Los Angeles – The inevitability of bad news makes it no more comforting, especially when one has to watch that news being made. The Dodgers fairly had the National League West title in hand for a while and figured to finish the deed behind Most Valuable Player candidate Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday night. And they did, beating the Giants 9-1 to set off that familiar piling-on of players in front of a full house at Dodger Stadium after clinching their second consecutive championship in a division the Giants once led by 9 1/2...
