Clayton Kershaw was dominant once again, tossing seven scoreless innings allowing five hit sand two walks while striking out 13 batters in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
Kershaw has been outstanding since making his return to the mound last month, with his best production coming over his last three starts. He has now fanned 36 batters over his last 24.0 shutout innings pitched while allowing just 11 hits and three walks. Anyone who doubted his first-round status entering drafts this past off-season are certainly singing a different tune as we reach the All-Star break. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Rockies on Friday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
