3 Days Rest

Clayton Kershaw takes the mound today for the LA Dodgers in game 4 of the National League Division Series in St Louis. The Dodgers are facing elimination and are turning to the ace to extend the season a little longer. Clayton Kershaw will be throwing on 3 days rest.

A back and forth with a friend ensued last night wondering what the stats are for pitchers starting on short rest.

I began googling and came across this article. Its a little long but definitely worth the read.
