The Los Angeles Dodgers Clayton Kershaw- the best pitcher in baseball turns 29 today. Kershaw has a career record of 126-60 with an ERA of 2.37. He has won three National League Cy Young Awards. He was on his way to a fourth Cy Young last year until he missed a couple months with a back injury. Clayton Kershaw became the only pitcher to lead Major League Baseball in lowest ERA for four consecutive seasons 2011-14. My favorite player to watch in baseball today.
