Kershaw (15-2) gave up seven hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings Tuesday in a 1-0 win over the White Sox. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

He's now won eight straight starts and 11 straight decisions, and Kershaw's seven whiffs Tuesday was actually his lowest total in his last six outings. He looked almost mortal at times earlier in the year, but the future Hall of Famer now has a 2.07 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 166:28 K:BB through 139.1 innings in 2017. The lefty will next take the mound Sunday at home against the Braves.

Kershaw was in fine form Sunday, tossing a complete game that included no walks and 13 strikeouts in a 5-2 win over the Royals. He allowed two runs on six hits.

EDGE Analysis

What a way to end the first half of the season. The Dodgers' ace continued his impressive run of strong pitching, earning his seventh straight victory while recording double-digit strikeouts for the fourth time in his last five starts. Kershaw now has a near-perfect 14-2 record to go with a sparking 2.18 ERA and stingy 0.88 WHIP -- both of which are slightly better than his career marks of 2.35 and 1.00. Now 29 years old, it might be hard to fathom, but the best may still be ahead for the Texan.

Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw likely won't start the first game back from the All-Star break, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kershaw is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Royals, and while that would potentially line him up to pitch the first game after the All-Star break, the Dodgers will apparently opt to give their ace some extra rest before calling upon his services again. The 29-year-old owns an impressive 2.19 ERA and 146:22 K:BB through 123.1 innings this season, so he'll likely return to the rotation for the second or third game after the break.

Kershaw (13-2) tossed seven innings of shutout baseball in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out 11.

EDGE Analysis

Kershaw carried a no-hitter through the first six innings but was undone by a Chris Owings infield single in the top of the seventh inning. He exited the game after throwing 117 pitches, which marks his second highest pitch count of the season. The former MVP ran into some trouble against the Mets on June 19 (6 ER over 6.1 innings) but has been masterful ever since, as he has not allowed an earned run in 20 consecutive innings and counting. He'll look to extend that streak during his upcoming scheduled start Sunday against the Royals.

Kershaw (12-2) allowed one run (unearned) on three hits and two walks while striking out 12 over seven innings in Thursday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers' ace was at it again, as he worked around an unearned run to grab his league-leading 12th win of the season. Aside from a rough outing against the Mets, Kershaw has been stellar in June; he's notched six quality starts in seven tries and has a 2.23 ERA and 57:10 K:BB ratio over 40.1 innings. He's set to make his next start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, which could line him up for another start before the Sunday before the All-Star break.

Kershaw is lined up to start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was moved up in the rotation to start Thursday's game against the Angels, which opens the possibility of Kershaw making two more starts before the All-Star break if manager Dave Roberts chooses to go that route. The Dodgers are dealing with some injuries in the rotation with Brandon McCarthy (knee) on the disabled list and Hyun-Jin Ryu nursing a sore foot. Further confirmation on Kershaw's next start should be available in the coming days, but as it stands, he figures to take the hill for the Dodgers' upcoming series opener against the Diamondbacks.

Kershaw will have his next start moved up to Thursday against the Angels, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers are rearranging their rotation in the wake of yet another injury, this time to Brandon McCarthy. Kershaw will be moved up to face the Angels instead of the Padres, and Alex Wood will be moved back from Thursday to Friday.

Kershaw (11-2) earned the win Saturday against the Rockies. He pitched six shutout innings, allowing four hits, while striking out eight and walking one.

EDGE Analysis

After somewhat scuffling his last time out, this was pretty close to vintage Kershaw. The left-hander kept the Rockies at bay for the entirety of his outing, but still ran up a high pitch count (103 pitches) that forced him from the game after six.

Kershaw (10-2) picked up the win Monday against the Mets despite allowing six runs on six hits in 6.1 innings pitched. He also walked one and struck out 10.

EDGE Analysis

Although he garnered the win, the Dodgers' ace was less than stellar, serving up four home runs on the evening. It's a bit concerning that his HR/9 is now all the way up to 1.5 (the first time it's ever been above 1.0 in his career), but his 2.61 ERA and 115:17 K:BB on the season keep him in the elite ranks of starting pitchers even when he's not at the top of his game. Kershaw's next assignment comes Saturday against the division-leading Rockies.

Kershaw will make his next scheduled start Monday against the Mets, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kershaw was originally scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the Reds, but manager Dave Roberts will instead insert Kenta Maeda into the rotation there in an attempt to give his starting pitchers an extra day of rest. Kershaw and his NL-best 2.23 ERA will now start his next contest home, lining him up for two starts next week.
