Not worth the risk imo. You lose tomorrow with him on short rest and that game 5 in Atlanta gets alot more difficult.
If the dodgers lose tomorrow I'm very confident Kershaw will have a big game in a big game situation on full rest. If he has to pitch a potential game 5 he wouldn't be ready to pitch again til a potential game 3 of the NLCS.
If he pitches game 4 tomorrow he won't be available on full rest again til game 2 of the NLCS if they get there.
Ideal situation Nolasco gives 6 solid innings and the bats put some runs up and Kershaw is good to go for a potential game 1 of the NLCS.
Starting him tomorrow for game 4 on short rest just isn't worth the risk to me though.
