Clayton Kershaw came out of Sunday night’s start without making his bum hip any worse, so the reigning Cy Young winner is scheduled to take his next turn in the rotation Friday versus the Rockies.
Kershaw prepared for the outing by throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, reporting no problems two days after tossing five innings of one-run ball against the Reds.
It wasn’t his sharpest start, as Kershaw walked five batters and needed 92 pitches to record 15 outs, but considering the possibility that he’ll need surgery to repair a torn labrum his performance was plenty encouraging.
“I have no medical reasoning for why it feels good and it didn’t before,” Kershaw said, via Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. “I’m not complaining. I feel good now.”
