Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw Proved He’s Not Done Yet Despite Injuries

Throughout a 162-game season, you’re going to have injuries. Some are going to be some nicks and bruises, and others are going to be season-ending. Unfortunately for the Dodgers, they suffered both of those types of injuries, and to some key players. 

One of the main players who missed some time in 2022 was Dodgers veteran Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw missed some time due to a sacroiliac joint issue located in the pelvis and a back injury that caused him to miss less than a month. Even with those two injuries, Kershaw still pitched in 22 games. The 34-year-old went 12-3 with a 2.28 ERA in 126.1 innings thrown. 

Although the season didn’t end the way we all envisioned, it was great to see Kershaw pitch in the postseason and get out of it injury free.

Last season, Kershaw injured his foreman in his last start of the season and missed the entire postseason. 

The 15-year veteran left Dodger faithful with uncertainty after the last off-season, not only with his free agency but with his health. He has missed a handful of games in the past couple of seasons, and people were unsure if he could still manage the workload required to be a starting pitcher. 

Kershaw answered all questions and didn’t leave anyone doubting his abilities after this season, regardless of how he looked in his last appearance. 

Whether Kershaw is still going to be a Dodger or not, it’s great to see that from a talent perspective, he still has a lot left in the tank.

  1. I know everyone wants the feel good options. But if you want to win you need evaluate recent historical performance and probable upside or downside going forward for each player. You start with returning players with light contracts, team options, and free agents. Evaluate minor league players in your system and others plus your files on other mlb players. All of which should already be done. Draw your circles around people to retain, promote, or acquire and proceed with getting the roster built. This team needs starting pitching, late inning relief pitching, back half of order pitching. If you want to be sentimental there is a price that you will pay in performance.

  2. Enjoy playing for the Texas Rangers. We appreciate everything that you have done as a Dodger, but it’s time to move on.
