Clayton Kershaw hasn’t been as sharp so far this season. The reigning NL Cy Young and MVP has been getting knocked around and haven’t been the same dominant pitcher we’ve seen for the last few seasons. Currently Kershaw is pitching a 4.25 ERA with batters hitting .263 off of him. Many fans are concerned about this mainly because Kershaw normally on his game and he’ll tell you that he hasn’t been on his game is sounds very frustrated by it. I’ll admit it’s something else to see him struggle right now but it’s nothing to be worried about. While Kershaw’s numbers and command hasn’t been there, Let’s remember that we are two months into the MLB season so this doesn’t warrant for a panic attack from the fan base at all.

Still early in the season and all it’ll take for Clayton is a solid start and a clear mind to get things going in the right direction. Kershaw command hasn’t been there in his last few starts and not to mention he hasn’t been getting the wins either (1-2 record in 7 games pitched this season). Despite the early struggles from Kershaw the Dodgers are still winning and playing good baseball. Yes Kershaw is lacking the run support from the team but again the Dodgers are facing the other teams Ace so there’s that. It’s still a long season and if anyone can figure out its Clayton Kershaw. He’s a competitor who will bring his A game no matter what and a slow start is something I believe he can overcome. Fan should relax as the team is playing some good baseball and currently sit in first place in the division. There’s time for Clayton Kershaw to get his pitching together for a stretch. Once he does get it together then it’s watch out National League.
