It’s not the end of the world, yet. Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace is suffering from back inflammation and, as was reported on OPSN yesterday by Andrew Vigliotti, has been scratched from the Dodgers’ Sunday U.S. opener against the San Diego Padres. An MRI showed no structural damage in Kershaw’s back which is excellent news. It was also reported by Fansided.com‘s Stacie Wheeler that Kershaw reported no discomfort after playing catch on Tuesday.
