He also stole two perfect games in the eighth inning this year. Although making his season debut for the first time, he was pulled out in the seventh inning by manager Dave Roberts due to strict pitch counting to prevent injuries.

Kershaw was named an All-Star for the ninth time this summer and started the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium. It was his first first nod at Midsummer Classic.
