Dodgers | Kershaw to begin pitching in relief to limit innings
Fri, 2 May 2008 08:39:52 -0700
The Press-Enterprise's Diamond Leung reports Los Angeles Dodgers prospect SP Clayton Kershaw will start pitching in the bullpen in the minors in order to limit his innings.
Colletti returned from his trip to the Dominican Republic and went straight to watch Class AA Jacksonville, where James McDonald started Thursday and top prospect Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to pitch today.
Kershaw, 20, who is expected to make his major league debut at some point this season after an impressive spring, will start pitching out of the bullpen in order to limit his innings, Manager Joe Torre said.
Kershaw is 0-3 in five starts but has a 1.40 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings.
With general manager Ned Colletti watching, 20-year-old phenom Clayton Kershaw allowed one unearned run over 6 2/3 innings Friday night for Double-A Jacksonville, but drew a no-decision and remains winless. He allowed six hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Kershaw is having his innings limited to 25 per month so he has something left to help the Major League club later in the year. His ERA is 1.11
Loaiza was charged with five runs in 2 1/3 innings. The Dodgers won't need a fifth starter again until May 17 and by that time, it could be Clayton Kershaw, for all the anticipation surrounding that 20-year-old.
