Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has told Mike Matheny that Clayton Kershaw can throw two innings at the All-Star game.
Kershaw is fresh off a 41 2/3 scoreless inning streak that was snapped by a Chase Headley solo homer Thursday night. He'll be on regular rest for the All-Star game which Mattingly likely sees as a tune-up before the second half. Kershaw is neck-and-neck with Adam Wainwright at the half for Cy-Young honors. ANALYST:
Kyle Schwarber was reassigned to minor league camp.
A top pick in the 2014 draft, Schwarber is a great hitter who's biggest question mark is what position he will play. The stick is ahead of the glove, so the Cubs may chose to speed up his ETA and stick him in the outfield. In that case, he could be MLB ready in 2016 and fantasy relevant soon after that.
