Clayton Kershaw makes first rehab start

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw made his first rehab start as he works to rejoin the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting rotation.

Kershaw is currently on the 10-day injured list due to inflammation in his left shoulder. On Thursday, he took the next step in his rehab process with a start at Triple-A in which he pitched into the fifth inning.

Kershaw’s velocity was reported to be consistently in the upper 80s during his outing.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated earlier this week Kershaw would likely make two rehab start before returning to Los Angeles.

In 26 starts last season, Kershaw went 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA and 155 strikeouts in 161.1 innings. Prior to this season, Kershaw had made eight consecutive Opening Day starts for the Dodgers.
