Last Friday, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw had to be placed on a 15-day injured list with inflammation of the right SI joint.

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is located in the pelvic area.

At the time, we didn’t know how long Kersho would be out of action.

On Tuesday afternoon, we still don’t know for sure, but at least we have some news.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says it’s “impossible” left-handed and future Hall of Famer will throw a bullpen tomorrow.

He says it’s still a possibility, but since he’s still feeling some discomfort after the epidural, that scene isn’t particularly possible.

The callus is still throwing, so it’s a positive.

“Clayton Kershaw is still throwing and has not stopped. “I think we’re all frustrated with this, but we have to deal with where he is,” said Dave Roberts.

Will it be a matter of pain tolerance for Kershaw?

Kershaw told reporters over the weekend that he had an MRI in the area that showed no structural damage.

This is seen as a pain-management situation that Kershaw will deal with for a long time, unless there is an extended absence.

It’s possible that he can pitch through it, though.

However, the silver lining is that the illness is not related to the arm problems that drove him away for most of the 2021 campaign.

Kershaw was enjoying a great start to the 2022 season, with 1.80 ERA and 0.73 WHIP in 30 innings.

He has a record of 4-0 goals.

He also struck out 32 hitters.

It’s too bad he’ll be out of action for some more time.

The whole league misses him, especially the fans.
