Kershaw will make a rehab start this weekend
At Thursday’s Dodgers All-Access event at Dodger Stadium, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman announced that Clayton Kershaw will return to action this weekend and pitch a rehab game with the High-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
“We’ll get through that one, then we’ll see where we’re at,” Friedman said. “He wants to be out there yesterday. We want him out there yesterday. It’s just about making sure when we get him back he’s back to stay back.”
Kershaw, who last pitched in a game on June 26 due to a mild herniated disc in his back, threw a simulated game on Tuesday. Friedman didn’t specify which day Kershaw will pitch. Ranch Cucamonga is hosting the Colorado Rockies’ High-A affiliate the Modesto Nuts this weekend.
