Dodgers Provide Update on Clayton Kershaw's Injury Status

Los Angeles Dodgers living legend Clayton Kershaw isn't quite ready to return to the mound, according to the latest report from manager Dave Roberts. 

Roberts said the 34-year-old ace is likely "a couple weeks away" from throwing a bullpen session. When he first went down a week ago, it was originally hoped that he could return from his IL stint in minimal time, but he is still sore while playing catch at this point, so things will have to get pushed back.

Kershaw suffered a pelvic injury known as "right SI joint inflammation."

The 3-time Cy Young Award winner and former NL MVP was off to one of the best starts of his illustrious career, with a 4-0 record through his first five starts, with a 1.80 ERA, a 0.73 WHIP, and a stunning 32:3 K:BB ratio.

He has career marks that look like something from a bygone era: A record of 189 wins vs. only 84 losses, a 2.48 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 15 complete game shutouts, and 2,702 strikeouts.
