UTK On Clayton Kershaw

From today's UTK:
Clayton Kershaw (0 DXL)
I hope I don't have to write about Kershaw much during his career. I'd say that about any young pitcher, but Kershaw could be special. The Dodgers look to be backing off bringing him up later this week, but I'm much more worried about how he's being used—or not used. Kershaw threw just 3 1/3 innings in his last outing, a reflection of the new limit they're putting on him to keep him from getting overworked. While I'll be accused of trying to have it both ways, the Dodgers might just be stunting his development by underutilizing him. Sure, I'm glad that they're not pushing him, but it seems these kinds of hard limits are being used in place of logic. Since they have one of the best medical staffs in the business, I can only hope that the front office is consulting with it on these decisions. I'd love for Ned Colletti to explain why he thinks this will work.
This is kind of ridiculous, considering that a brief look at the line score would tell you everything you need to know — he stank that day (five earned runs in 3.1 innings).
