The Dodgers do rely heavily on analytics but they seemed more willing to


adapt than the Rays. The use of all their other pitchers, Gonsolin and May as openers in particular, is very analytics-based. As far as Kershaw goes, yes he's laid some stinkers in the postseason and he's prone to TTO regression like every starting pitcher, but he pitched an 8 inning 13k shutout masterpiece in game 1 against the Brewers this very year. 2018, 8 innings of shutout ball against the Braves. In fact 19 of his 30 postseason starts, he's completed at least 6 innings, 13 times he's pitched into the 7th and later. A shorter season and a lighter workload leading up to the playoffs certainly factored in their decisions on his usage this postseason.
