Clayton Kershaw made a great start in 2022 after returning to the Los Angeles Dodgers on a one-year, $ 17 million contract.

However, he will not start his original scheduled tonight as the Dodgers will host the Philadelphia Phillies.

Instead, he will be on the injured list with inflammation of the right SI joint.

Walker Bueller will be moved upstairs from his start on Saturday and will start at Kershor tonight.

Again, with Kershaw down, Buehler will step up to pick the slack.

Buhler started the 2022 season with a 4-1 record and 1.96 ERA in his first six starts.

Buehler achieves survival status

Buehler again speculated the role of the Dodgers’ starting rotation ace.

He had been that guy for several years since Kershaw struggled with his health.

Again, he’ll step into that role and see if he can give the Dodgers some innings coverage tonight against the Phillies.

This time, it’s official that Bueller has stepped forward and taken on the role.

Kershaw successfully delivered the torch to him and helped turn him into what he is today: one of the best pitchers in baseball, including the Sai Young-caliber staff.

He will be tested again tonight, but at the moment, Dodgers feels confident in what they have with Bueller.

He and she will do something tonight to take on the role of Tekka that he is not unfamiliar with.

He will be called upon to provide a stopgap for the Dodgers and to assist the ship properly after the Kershore injury.

Kyle Gibson will oppose Bueller.
