Line of the Day: May 29th, 2011

SP Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers allowed two hits and walked one while striking out 10 in an 8-0 victory over the Florida Marlins. It was Kershaw's second career complete game, both of which were shutouts.

Line: 9 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K; W, QS, CG, SHO

My fantasy perspective: Kershaw leads the majors with 87 strikeouts in 79 innings pitched for a career-best 9.91 K/9 ratio. He also has a career-low 2.73 BB/9 ratio. With nine quality starts in 12 games, Kershaw could easily have a better than 6-3 record on the season. Add in his 2.62 ERA and 1.10 WHIP and you can expect to see his name mentioned in the NL Cy Young Award conversation this offseason.
