Report: Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw Done for the Season

The Los Angeles Dodgers were dealt a major blow on Friday night as starter Clayton Kershaw went down with a forearm injury and his manager Dave Roberts thinks the news is not going to be good.

The Dodgers were playing the Milwaukee Brewers, and in the second inning the Dodgers great felt something wrong in his forearm. Roberts met with the media after the game and had this to say:

We're going to do some more tests tomorrow, but obviously when Clayton has to come out of a game, it doesn't bode well. What that means, we just don't know enough right now. Where we are, what's left in the season, just not too optimistic right now.

The worst part of it all is this has been a nagging injury that appears to have run its course. Kershaw's forearm has limited him this season as he's only made four starts since July.  Here's what the three-time Cy Young Award had to say after the game:

It's a tough blow, obviously. Just felt something in my elbow in the second inning. Forearm, elbow, I don't know what it is. Kind of the same thing I've been dealing with, and it just got bad enough to where I couldn't keep going tonight. The biggest thing is I just wanted to be part of this team going through October. ... That's the hardest part for me right now, is that chances are it's not looking great for October right now

Good thing the Dodgers traded for Max Scherzer...
