The Los Angeles Dodgers have decided to shut down SP Clayton Kershaw for the season due to a high innings count. Kershaw put together another fantastic season with a 2.91 ERA with a 1.18 whip and 212 K’s.
Analysis: Kershaw is flat out one of the best starters in all of fantasy baseball. After a concerning April when walks got the better of him, Kershaw finished in dominating fashion. The power repertoire is top notch and if he can curtail the walks some more, he will easily be a top 5 starter in the game. Right now he is worth drafting as soon as the third round during next year’s fantasy baseball drafts.
