Dodgers News: MLB Beat Writer Looks Back At Best Development From 2022 Season

There’s a lot that can be said about the Dodgers during the 2022 season with most of the talks being negative. The regular season success didn’t automatically translate to postseason success and the Dodgers season was defined during the seventh inning of game four, but one positive takeaway according to MLB Beat Writer Juan Toribio was the health of Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw entered his 15th season with the Dodgers after finishing with a 10-8 record in 2021 and being limited to just 10 games in 2020. Kershaw battled a back injury that kept him out over a month but still remained at the top of his game as he was apart of his ninth All-Star team for his career. 

There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding Kershaw last offseason. Nobody really knew whether he would be able to handle a full workload, but the likely Hall of Famer answered all those questions, going 12-3 with a 2.28 ERA. Kershaw is an unrestricted free agent and has expressed interest in coming back. But it’s good to see Kershaw heading into the winter fully healthy this time around (via MLB).

With Kershaw’s future remaining uncertain, yet Andrew Friedman publicly saying he would love to have Kershaw back, the Dodgers may need him more than ever. If the 2022 season wasn’t evident enough, the Dodgers pitching unit falling apart at the end of the season was one of the glaring issues for their downfall. 

There’s still plenty of time for the Dodgers to make moves that will keep the team from another disappointing season and Kershaw’s health may be a key factor in bringing him back.
