Kershaw missed six weeks early this season with a strained shoulder, but he's still managed to put together some impressive numbers in his seven starts.
In his 43 1/3 innings this season, he's struck out 55 and walked only seven. That's fairly amazing. He's given up a few more hits than he'd probably like (40) and his 3.32 ERA is fine, though still above his 2.60 career mark.
Kershaw had one horrid start this season, allowing seven runs in 1 2/3 innings against the Diamondbacks on May 17. Eliminate that game and he has a 1.99 ERA in his other six starts.
