Dodgers Nation: Clayton Kershaw Won’t Pitch in 2017 ASG

It was announced yesterday afternoon that due to a scheduling conflict, Clayton Kershaw will not be participating in the 2017 All-Star Game in Miami.

Clayton Kershaw is set to take the mound on Sunday against the Kansas City Royals. That would leave a one-day rest between that start and an All-Star Game appearance, basically eliminating the entire rest part of an All-Star break. However, this would potentially put Dodgers’ second ace Alex Wood as his replacement.

Alex Wood, who should’ve already been a first round all-star selection, is now 10-0 with an ERA well under two. After his remarkable start against the D-Backs, throwing seven shutout innings, he truly makes his case to be Kershaw’s replacement.

The Dodgers’ look to sweep the D-Backs and extend their lead in the NL West to 5.5 games by the end of today. We will see Rich Hill go up against the very good Robbie Ray. First pitch is at 7:10 PM PT.
