2022 Fantasy Outlook
First, the good news. Kershaw started 22 games and registered a 29.5% strikeout rate and 25.2% K-BB%, their highest since 2017. Now, the bad news. Kershaw was sidelined from early July to mid-September with a sore shoulder. Finally, the ominous news. Upon returning, Kershaw was shut down with forearm discomfort. Despite scans showing no ligament damage, Kershaw reported he received PRP injections, most often used in lieu of Tommy John surgery on a slight UCL tear. The extent of Kershaw's injury is unclear. The Dodgers declined his qualifying offer, but brought him back on a one-year $17 million contract after the lockout, which suggests he's not a lost cause from a health standpoint. Until Kershaw is on a mound and throwing pain free, he's a huge risk, but the Dodgers opting to bring him back is as good of an outcome in free agency as we could have hoped for. Read Past Outlooks
