MLB Notebook: Dodgers hope Kershaw can start Game 4
CEO Dave Roberts said on Wednesday that Clayton Kershaw will likely start the fourth game of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ National Leagues series if the left-hand back continues to improve.
Kershaw has been scratched since the start of the second game due to back spasms, and Roberts decided to stick with Julio Urias, left-handed, in the third game against Atlanta on Wednesday evening. The fourth game of the Neutral Venue Series will be held in Texas Thursday night.
“Every day has been better,” said Roberts, on the back of Kershaw. “I can’t sit here now and say it will start tomorrow. I think if it progresses the way it did, it probably will be. But then again, that’s making sure that Clayton feels good tomorrow when he wakes up and that the coaching staff gives us our blessings too.”
After the Dodgers lost their first two games, NL Cy Young was thrown three-time award winner on the field before Match 3.
White socks: A person familiar with the situation said the Los Angeles Angels granted Chicago White Sox permission to interview Hall of Famer Tony La Russa for her managerial position.
The person who confirmed the USA Today report spoke on the condition of anonymity because angels do not usually comment on personnel matters.
The 76-year-old, three-time World Championship winner, La Russa joined the Angels before this season as a senior advisor for baseball operations.
The White Sox decided not to keep Rick Renteria after losing in the first round of the playoffs, after a breakthrough season in which he made the post-season for the first time since 2008.
La Rossa, who started his managerial career with the White Sox during the 1979 season, has not been successful since 2011, when he led St. Louis past Texas in the World Series. He also won championships with Oakland in 1989 and the Cardinals in 2006.
If appointed, he would be the oldest manager in the major tournaments by five years. Astros Manager Dusty Baker is 71 years old.
La Russa is 2728-2365 with six logos over the course of 33 seasons with Chicago, Oakland and St. Louis and was consecrated at Cooperstown in 2014. Only Hall of Famers Connie Mac (3731) and John McGraw (2763) scored more victories.
