Kershaw Named Best Prospect By Midwest League

Clayton Kershaw is with Jacksonville these days, having left the Midwest League behind. However, the impression left was considerable as pointed out by the fact that the low A league has handed him two distinct post-season honors.

Kershaw, who pitched for Great Lakes before making his move up to AA, has been named to the Midwest League All-Star team. What's more, that league named him the Best Prospect who played there in 2007.

While with Great Lakes, the 19-year-old lefthander was 7-5 with a 2.77 ERA. he struck out 134 batters in the 97.1 innings he worked while holding opposing hitters to a .203 average.

In player moves within the organization, the Dodgers stocked Inland Empire for the coming California League playoffs by moving three players up to them. Infielder Adolfo Gonzalez and lefthander Garrett White were promoted from Great Lakes while shortstop Jaime Pedroza was pulled up from Ogden.
