Clayton Kershaw returns to disabled list after just one start

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw returned from the disabled list to pitch Thursday for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things didn’t go well and he’s heading right back on the shelf.

Kershaw, who missed virtually all of May with biceps tendinitis, was placed on the disabled list Friday with what the Dodgers are calling a lower back strain.

Worryingly, Kershaw had the same injury last season, which cost him five weeks of action.

Kershaw didn’t pitch poorly on Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies, lasting five innings and allowing one run, but his fastball was barely touching 90. Dave Roberts said his back tightened up while pitching, and it was severe enough that he’ll be sidelined for at least another week and a half and possibly more.
