Kershaw to make season debut as Dodgers host Reds

Left-hander Clayton Kershaw is set to make his season debut when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Cincinnati Reds in the opener of a three-game series on Monday night.

The three-time National League Cy Young Award winner was shut down during spring training because of inflammation in his throwing shoulder and didn’t make the Opening-Day start for the Dodgers for the first time since 2010.

“He’s champing at the bit,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

Kershaw will likely face two former teammates in Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp.

Well, the Reds are as good a team as any for a start of this nature….

He gave up a home run to Puig. :(

Yes, but Joc saved the day. And despite the bad pitch, Kershaw's ERA is at 2.57. I'll take it.

In other news Kershaw appeared in a video at the Dallas Stars playoff game to cheer on his hometown hockey team.

They lost.
