Coronavirus: Dodgers ace Kershaw to make 9th Opening Day get started

Clayton Kershaw will start for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Opening Day against the San Francisco Giants.

The start of the MLB campaign has been on hold since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has wreaked havoc in the United States and across the globe.

But the abbreviated 60-game regular season will commence on July 23, with the Dodgers hosting rivals the Giants.

Dodgers ace Kershaw, 31, will take to the mound on Opening Day for the ninth time in his stellar career, the Los Angeles franchise announced on Tuesday.

The last Dodger other than 2014 National League MVP Kershaw to be named for an Opening Day start was Vicente Padilla in 2010.

In his previous eight Opening Day starts, three-time NL Cy Young award winner and eight-time All-Star Kershaw has compiled a 1.05 ERA with 59 strikeouts.

In 2019, Kershaw made 29 appearances and struck out 189 batters with a 16-5 win-loss record for the Dodgers – who reached the NL Division Series last season.
