Kershaw sent back down to Triple-A
Clayton Kershaw, SP LA
News: The Dodgers optioned struggling rookie SP Clayton Kershaw to Triple-A Las Vegas after the left-hander allowed five runs -- including a pair of homers -- in 2 1/3 innings at Washington on Thursday. He gave up five hits and three walks, striking out two in the loss. He was 2-5 with a 4.56 ERA with the Dodgers, but 0-2 in his last four starts.
Analysis: Kershaw has ace potential and has flashed it at times this season, but the Dodgers can't afford to develop him at the major-league level. They have a playoff push to make. He might return to the majors before season's end, but you obviously can't trust him even if he does. Aside from NL-only leagues, go ahead and cut him in seasonal formats.
