Kershaw Returns
By Patrick Sullivan

Clayton Kershaw goes for the Dodgers tonight. Here is what he has done thus far in 2008:

                  IP   ERA   H   R   ER  BB  SO
MLB              38.7  4.42  39  19  19  24  33
MiLB (total)     61.1  1.91  39  19  13  19  59      
(Since demotion) 18.0  1.00   7   2   2   4  12

He was a tad unlucky on balls in play and he walked too many batters when he was up with the Big club. He seems to have straightened out the control issues back with Jacksonville but then, Jacksonville is not Coors Field, is it? One could reasonably question the decision to bring Kershaw back for his first start since his demotion in Denver but either way it appears he may be up for good. Stay tuned.
