Kershaw on rehab start: ‘Good first step’

Clayton Kershaw was upbeat Thursday night despite producing a mediocre pitching line during a minor league rehab start.

The Los Angeles Dodgers ace, on the injured list due to left shoulder inflammation, tossed 4 1/3 innings while pitching for the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers. He allowed two runs on four hits, including a home run, and two walks while striking out six.

“I feel good,” Kershaw said postgame. “It was a good first step. Got through everything I needed to, got up to that fifth inning, got some guys on base, worked out of the stretch, did multiple different things. So it was a good day.”

Helped by a solo home run from Tyrone Taylor off Kershaw, the visiting San Antonio Missions spoiled Oklahoma City’s season opener by emerging with a 5-3 win.

It is unclear if Kershaw’s next start will be in the minors or if he will return to the Dodgers’ major league rotation.
