LOS ANGELES – Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw returned to the injured list just days before the start of the post-season defense at the World Series Championships in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The three-time Tsai Young Award winner has discomfort in front of his hand, the same injury that kept him away for 5 games from Aug. August to September 1st.
Kershaw gave up his start against Milwaukee on Friday night after 1 2/3 innings. He dropped three runs with a strikeout. He is 10-8 with a 3.38 ERA, his highest mark since the 4.26 ERA as a rookie in 2008.
“Chances are, it doesn’t look great for October right now,” said Gloom Kershaw. “I just wanted to be a part of this team for the month of October. This team is special. ”
The Dodgers went two games behind San Francisco to win the NL West title on Saturday but were assured of hosting an NL wild-card game if they couldn’t catch the Giants with two games left.
The team has withdrawn right-hander Mitch White.
