|Dodgers | Shift hurting Clayton Kershaw?|
Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:54:06 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw was hurt by defensive shifts early in his loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks last weekend. "A lot of people do a lot of research and a lot of homework to put guys where they're supposed to be," Kershaw said. "You execute the game plan, the theory is they'll hit it where they are. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, it doesn't." Manager Don Mattingly does not believe hitters have the ability to hit the ball where they desire to foil defensive shifts. However, Mattingly also said the team may need to alter their defensive approach to certain hitters if they prove that they are adept at beating the shift.
Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) remains one of the best pitchers in baseball, if not the best, despite his slow start to the 2015 season (0-1, 5.84 ERA in 12 1/3 innings). You shouldn't hesitate at all to use him in his next start at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) allowed 10 hits, one walk and one home run while striking out five batters. Owners can feel free to ignore this stat line, and continue to pay the premium price for Kershaw every time he takes the mound.

Fantasy Tip: This is unlikely to affect Kershaw's ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) availability for his second start of 2015. Kershaw is currently the highest-priced player at FantasyScore, and for a reason. He's a strong starting pitching option for daily gamers whenever he toes the rubber.

|Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw sharp in spring start|
Thu, 26 Mar 2015 16:50:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) is the consensus top pitcher in baseball, and his quick return to sharp form in his first start since getting hit in the mouth with a line drive is excellent for his fantasy outlook. Continue to draft him in the first round, but a matchup with the San Diego Padres in the season opener isn't as juicy as it would have been last year. Still, he's capable of carrying FantasyScore teams and worthy of consideration on opening day.

|Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw to get more dental work|
Sun, 22 Mar 2015 11:25:45 -0700
Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (tooth) will require more dental work after being hit in the face by a line drive Friday, March 20, but he is still slated to start Opening Day. Kershaw had one tooth extracted and another one repaired, according to manager Don Mattingly.
Fantasy Tip: This development will not affect Kershaw's status as the top pitcher in fantasy baseball. He is likely to be drafted in the middle of the first round in universal fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to view Kershaw ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) as the top pitcher in fantasy baseball, and expect him to be drafted in the middle of Round 1. Kershaw and the Dodgers host the San Diego Padres in their first game, and Kershaw is worth considering as your No. 1 starter for FantasyScore contests.

|Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw avoids scare|
Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:01:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kershaw is the No. 1 pitcher in baseball, and he projects to go in the middle of Round 1 in the majority of drafts. Over the past five seasons, Kershaw has averaged 17 wins, a 2.26 ERA, a 0.99 WHIP and 232 strikeouts over 220 innings pitched. He has been even better the past two years, too, and at just 27, there is no reason to expect a drop off.
