Kershaw MIGHT be on the way

Here’s what’s going on, based on the information I have been able to cull from several sources: Clayton Kershaw was pulled after one inning last night because the Dodgers are CONSIDERING calling him up, and that’s a decision they aren’t necessarily going to make today. As it was put to me, if he had thrown 90-100 pitches, six or seven innings last night, bringing him up wouldn’t even be an option. I’m not sure why, as he still would have been perfectly lined up to start on Tuesday at Chicago, the next time the Dodgers need a fifth starter, but it probably has something to do with that 170-inning limit they have Kershaw on for the season. … Below is the lineup, which doesn’t have Rafael Furcal in it. That’s the next thing I have to run down, is why he isn’t being activated, and if he is, why he isn’t in the lineup.
