Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw has solidified himself as one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.
Going into Tuesday’s start against the Washington Nationals, Kershaw had a 16-3 record with a 1.73 ERA. Not only is he a National League Cy Young Award candidate, Kershaw has NL MVP potential.
In an interview with ESPN’s Buster Olney as a part of Sunday’s SportsCenter, Kershaw expressed how he didn’t want to be compared to Dodger-great Sandy Koufax. The left-hander added that he does not feel that he is in the same category as Koufax yet.
Kershaw is a four-time All-Star and has had an ERA under 3.00 for six out of his seven big league seasons. His win Tuesday gave him an MLB-best 17 on the season.
