• Report: Dodgers to give Kershaw extra rest

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Sep 17, 2013
    The Dodgers say it is only a precautionary measure and that Kershaw is healthy. The move gives Kershaw, who leads the majors with 223 innings pitched, an extra three days off. The move means Kershaw, who leads the majors with 223 innings pitched 10 short of his career high will now make two more regular-season starts instead of three. Right-hander Stephen Fife will start for the Dodgers in Arizona on Wednesday. Had he pitched Wednesday and stayed on four days' rest the remainder of the season, he would have lined up to pitch Game 1 of a playoff series, which starts Oct. 3. "I know [general manager] Ned [Colletti] is concerned and the whole organization is concerned with how are we going to keep his innings down."
