Electrofunk phenom GRiZ continues to turn heads with his energetic blend of saxophone and production, and today he’s returned with a brand new track. The new offering sees GRiZ partner with soul singer and pianist Leo Napier, who wrote the new original tune “Before I Go.” Though the song deals with the heavy subject of addiction, its an infectious groove that showcases the stripped down style of Napier with the hyped-up energy that only GRiZ can bring to the table.GRiZ describes the track in his social media post, saying: “This song is about addiction and letting go. Leo did an amazing job writing and I’m happy I was able to bring this to life. It really hits home to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as it has helped me.”Listen to the new jam below.
With Kershaw recovered from the shoulder inflammation that put a hole in his spring training, Roberts looked for the bright side in having the left-hander’s season start a little late.“I don’t think he’ll feel that way. But as an organization, it’s not the worst thing,” Roberts said. “As long as he comes back healthy, which he is … if you look at the entire season, to shorten his season just a tick, it’s not the worst thing.”ALSOLeft-hander Rich Hill is expected to throw off a mound again Tuesday, adding to his pitch count. Hill threw 20 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday, testing his injured left knee on the slope of the pitcher’s mound for the first time since injuring it during spring training. He hopes to extend that to 35-40 pitches Tuesday.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Ross Stripling, 0-0, 2.31 ERA) at Cardinals (RHP Dakota Hudson, 0-1, 5.40 ERA), Tuesday, 4:45 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AM Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ST. LOUIS — Clayton Kershaw’s final step before rejoining the Dodgers rotation will be taken in Tulsa, Okla.Kershaw is scheduled to make his second minor-league rehab start for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers on Tuesday night. The choice between Tulsa or another start with Triple-A Oklahoma City came down to a more favorable weather forecast and better facilities at home with the Drillers than on the road with OKC (which plays in Omaha).If everything goes well Tuesday, Kershaw could make his season debut with the Dodgers either Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers or Monday against the Cincinnati Reds (both are home games).“That’s the plan. … Sunday or Monday,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We’ll see. We’ll leave it open. “We’ll let him get through his start then we’ll plug him in where it makes the most sense.”Kershaw threw 61 pitches in 4-1/3 innings for OKC on Thursday. He is expected to extend that into a sixth inning and possibly as many as 90 pitches, including a simulated inning in the bullpen after he leaves the game.“With that, we expect when he does make his start with us for him to be a full go,” Roberts said.Kershaw’s insertion into the rotation means young left-hander Julio Urias will go to the bullpen after making his third start Friday against the Brewers.“That will strengthen our bullpen,” Roberts said.
