DODGER ACE CLAYTON KERSHAW MAY BE SHUT DOWN FOR REST OF ’16

By Sam Bush

The L. A. Dodgers may have to go the rest of 2016 without Clayton Kershaw, their great starter.

Kershaw’s recovery from a herniated disc in his back is becoming more complicated and concerning with each passing day.

On Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced that Kershaw’s timetable for a return was now “uncertain” after he reportedly felt discomfort following a simulated game this weekend.

Yesterday, things got a little more ominous with Roberts admitting that season-ending surgery is now more likely based on how Kershaw’s back is reacting.

“With the way it flared up, it’s more of an indication that surgery is more of a possibility,” were Roberts’ exact words before the Dodgers took on the Nationals Wednesday night.

There’s no indication surgery is imminent or the only hope for a complete recovery. Roberts is basing his opinion and his concern on his own back issues, which did ultimately require surgery. In fact, there’s been some reassurance that surgery wouldn’t be a recommendation based on Kershaw’s condition.
