Found May 01, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Dodgers recently placed left-handed starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw on the bereavement list following the death of his father. While Kershaw has been apart from the club as a result of the loss, LA didn't expect him to miss Friday's regularly scheduled start when they made the transaction. Kershaw indeed will not miss Friday's matchup against the San Francisco Giants, as manager Don Mattingly told reporters -- including Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles -- that the southpaw is "a go." "Clayton is a 'go' for San Francisco right now," manager Don Mattingly said. "We're pretty sure of that." Kershaw left the Dodgers immediately after his last start -- during which he logged eight shutout innings against the Milwaukee Brewers. Los Angeles placed him on the bereavement list the next day, and his father's passing has since been reported. Prior to hitting the bereavement list, Kershaw had been spectacular for the Dodgers. The 25-year-old posted a 1.73 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 41 2/3 innings in his first six starts of the new campaign. LA is hoping Kershaw will be able to pick up right where he left off.

Sandy Koufax's scouting report surfaces

Many argue Sandy Koufax as one of the greatest pitchers of all-time. He dominated the National League as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Oh, his final two seasons, he pitched in 335.2 and 320 innings. He didn’t show any signs of...

The Stockton Ports scored their only two runs of the night in the first inning, aided by a Darnell Sweeney error -- his 13th in 24 games. Addison...
