Clayton Kershaw allows one run in return from biceps injury, but now his back is acting up

Kershaw’s fastball averaged 91.9 mph in his seven starts prior to the biceps injury, so his velocity was down considerably in his return Thursday. The good news is, even with reduced velocity, Kershaw was rather effective, and his secondary pitches were still missing bats. He generated a whopping 15 swings and misses among his 62 pitches, which is ridiculous.

Perhaps in an effort to compensate for the lack of velocity, Kershaw relied on his slider heavily against the Phillies, throwing the pitch 31 times. He usually throws it around 35 percent of the time. Thursday is was exactly half the time.
