​​​​​​​​​​LEFTHANDED BASEBALL

The Best Lefthanded Batters and Lefthanded Pitchers in Baseball

Current Best Lefthanded Starting Pitchers

Clayton Kershaw has pitched 11 years in the major leagues, all with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  He has 153 wins and only 69 losses, for a .689 winning percentage (5th all-time).  He has a 2.39 Earned Run Average (27th all time) in  316 starts, 2096 innings, and has given up only 1570 hits, and only 536 walks with 2275 strikeouts. 

Kershaw has made the all-star team 7 times, won the Cy Young Award 3 times (2011. 2013. 2014) and won the National League MVP award in 2014.  He has lead the National League in ERA 5 times, Games Started and Strikeout 3 times each, Wins, Shutouts, and Complete Games 2 times each, and Innings Pitched once.  He has battled back injuries for the past couple of seasons, but when healthy he is the best lefthander in the game and should be a lock for the Hall of Fame when his time comes.
