Clayton Kershaw exited his begin on Friday night time early after struggling a left forearm harm because the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Milwaukee Brewers.

He left within the second inning after solely throwing 42 pitches. It’s the identical harm that stored him on the harm listing from July 4 to Sept. 12 earlier this season and will preserve him off the Dodgers’ postseason roster.

“It’s a tough blow. Just felt something there in my elbow, I don’t know what it is. Kind of the same thing I’ve been dealing with. It got bad enough to where I couldn’t keep going,” he mentioned.

“Chances are, it’s not looking good for October right now. I know we’re going to do something special this year and I wanted to be part of that.”

Kershaw was 10-8 this season with a 3.55 ERA and 144 strikeouts in 22 begins. He’s been probably the greatest pitchers to ever play for the Dodgers with three National League Cy Young awards and a National League MVP award in his trophy case.

Kershaw was set to be an integral part of the Dodgers' run in the postseason.

Los Angeles will certainly be dealt a blow if Kershaw can not go for the postseason. The Dodgers try to keep away from taking part in within the wild-card playoff recreation. The group must win the rest of the video games on their schedule and hope the San Francisco Giants falter.
