Report: Los Angeles Dodgers Place Superstar Starter On Injured List


The MLB All-Star Game is fast approaching, and while many were taking the time to debate who the starting pitcher in the NL should be (Spencer Strider or Clayton Kershaw), the latter will now unfortunately head to the Injured List, and won't be available for the game.

The latest stint on the IL for the legendary pitcher comes due to a shoulder injury, and while it's not considered serious, LA will need to be taking their precautions, as Kershaw will play a pivotal part in any playoff success this team may be lucky to have in 2023.

According to a report, the Dodgers are expecting him back in the week or two following the All-Star break, and after another incredible start to 2023 with a 10-4 record and a 2.55 ERA, and if he can get healthy for the playoffs, expect some more big performances from the veteran star.
