Clayton Kershaw lasted just 1.2 innings surrendering seven runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three batters in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.
Kershaw's struggles at Chase Field continued on Saturday night after taking losing his fifth straight start in the desert. He is now sitting 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after this debacle, but fantasy owners should not be overly concerned by this performance, considering he is arguably the best pitcher in the game so a bounce back should be expected next time around. The Dodgers ace will look to get back to his winning ways when he takes on the Phillies on Friday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
