Kershaw was scratched and placed on the injured list just hours before his opening day assignment against the San Francisco Giants. The 32-year-old left-hander had a flare-up of back issues that have plagued him over the last two seasons, but fortunately the situation didn’t prove to be serious.
Kershaw looked good when healthy in 2019. He posted a 3.03 ERA over 29 games last season. However, another rough postseason, coupled with another injury concern, will have people focusing on how he bounces back.
