Dodgers news...

Clayton Kershaw made his first rehab start in Oklahoma City. With the Dodgers major league team having an off day, all the media attention was on No. 22.

Oklahoma City mobile journalist Lee Benson gathered clips of Kershaw’s Opening Day start:

Kershaw said his next step will likely be another start in the minors before heading back with the Dodgers. You can read more on Kershaw’s start from The Oklahoman’s Jacob Unruh.

Los Angeles Times writer Jorge Castillo writes about the Dodgers bullpen.

“Help is on the way. Once Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill come off the injured list and join the starting rotation, Urias and Ross Stripling will shift to the bullpen. Urias will make the move first. His scheduled start Sunday against the Colorado Rockies could be his last before Kershaw is activated.” - Jorge Castillo, Los Angeles Times

Around the league...

The Indians pitchers threw a combined no-hitter through eight innings, but lost the bid in the ninth. Insert sad face here.

I’m not pointing fingers, but look who didn’t follow the “don’t talk about it” rule.

Mike Trout hits his first dinger of the season.

The staff over at ESPN wrote a “hot takes” story. In it, they say Joc Pederson will finish in the top 10 of the National League MVP vote. What do you think about that?
