I think he's atleast a year or 2 years away from being a very fantasy relevant



I remember hearing that a year or two ago about some guy named Tim who pitches for the giants.. Glad I didn't listen back then..........

Kershaw is 21...

Lincecum/Liriano became studs at 23. Billingsley became fantasy relevant at 22. Prior became fantasy relevant at 21. Hamels at 23. You can't base development off just age, especially when Kershaw has absolutely dominated R, A and AA, and has shown he's a capable MLB starter. I think Kershaw will be fantasy relevant this season and will develop into a top 8-12 SP in a year or two...

He'll probably will be fantasy relevant but people shouldn't be thinking he's going to take big strides like ervin santana, billingsley and lincecum

He'll finish with decent overall stats, but I imagine him being up and down throughout the year. Some dominant starts, and then others will drive you crazy when he walks half the team in the first.

A WHIP in the 1.28-1.32 range with an ERA 3.8-4.1 about a K an inning is his ceiling for this season IMO. Certainly great value for where he's going in a redraft.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
