Phillies @ Dodgers – May 13, 2022: Kersh’s back broke again, Buehler starts on regular rest

Well folks, here comes the baseball season, as things have become rather messy already for the Dodgers. Before their game with the Phillies tonight, it was announced that Clayton Kershaw would be heading to the IL with SI joint inflammation, which is basically lower back pain.

Kershaw is dealing with right SI joint inflammation. The sacroiliac joints are situated where the lower spine and pelvic connect and can cause lower back pain, according to the Mayo Clinic. “I don’t feel great right now, but hopefully I’ll feel good and be back out there soon,” Kershaw said. Kershaw didn’t go into detail about the injury, which required an epidural shot Thursday, but he expressed confidence that he’ll be better by the time his required 15 days on the injured list are up.

They hope he’ll be back soon but they said that about Blake Treinen as well, so who knows?

No I don’t know why I’m doing Game Threads on back-to-back days either.

Game starts … well, now.
