Clayton Kershaw Now Out Indefinitely with Back Injury

July 19th, 2016

The Los Angeles Dodgers were hoping to get Clayton Kershaw back into the rotation on Thursday. That possibility was thrown out the window over the weekend when he experienced some pain after pitching a simulated game. 

The three-time Cy Young winner has been out since late June with a herniated disc in his back. And now, it appears that he's going to be on the shelf until further notice. 

As McCullough points out, Kershaw will be shut down indefinitely until his back pain goes away. That could mean a long-term stint on the DL for a pitcher that was putting up a historic season prior to said injury. We'll have an in-depth fantasy article up on this late-breaking news here shortly.
