Clayton Kershaw missed over two months with a back injury earlier this season, but in his two starts since returning from the disabled list he’s seemingly picked up right where he left off.
The Dodgers put Kershaw on a limited pitch count, but in two starts since returning, he’s pitched eight total innings, allowing just two earned runs with 10 strikeouts. In his last start against the New York Yankees, he was working on a perfect game before multiple rain delays ended his outing after just five innings. That’s enough evidence to convince NESN’s Tom Caron to put Kershaw in his DraftKings lineup Monday.
