Kershaw's second time around...

Postby hett2333 » Mon Jul 21, 2008 9:28 pm

Jul 21 Tony Jackson, of the Los Angeles Daily News, reports the Los Angeles Dodgers will recall SP Clayton Kershaw from Double-A Jacksonville so he can start Tuesday, July 22.

Even though he was marginal at best his first time around, do you give him another shot?

If you have a marginal pitcher on your rotation, then why not? He's an elite talent regardless of his performance during his first call-up, and it's quite possible that he could "figure it out" this time.

Super prospects like Kershaw won't always uplift a team during a call-up--some need to adjust to the MLB-level. But when they do... oh boy. :-L

On a side note, I find it hilarious cbssportsline's fantasy site is always last to receive or post news. I think the pigeon's will arrive to their headquarters tomorrow to deliver them the message...

I'd pick up Kershaw but I wouldn't judge him based off tonight's start as there's a good chance he'll be more suspect than usual. If anything, I'd check his pitch efficiency and control.
