Kershaw was placed on the 15-day disabled list (IL) with left shoulder soreness,, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), reported on Thursday. The Dodgers also designated left-handed pitcher Victor Gonzalez for assignment (DFA) and called up right-handed pitchers Michael Grove and Gavin Stone to fill the roster spots.

After playing catch for the second straight day, Kershaw’s shoulder felt better than before, according to, but the IL stint was inevitable. Kershaw suffered shoulder inflammation and received an injection after his start against the Colorado Rockies on 28 March (six innings of one-hit ball). “If there was ever a time to give him a little bit of a reset, this would be it,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Kershaw was coming off his best pitching performance of the season. He was 10-4 with a 2.55 ERA in 16 starts before the injury. He was tied for the National League lead in wins with Zack Greinke (Arizona Diamondbacks, 10-3, 3.15 ERA) and third in ERA with Spencer Strider (Atlanta Braves, 10-2, 3.66 ERA). His Cy Young Award pace has drawn attention, but he’s been sidelined by back pain. Kershaw was recently confirmed for his 10th career All-Star Game.

Kershaw, who made his big league debut in 2008, is a top-notch pitcher. In his 16-year career, he has a 207-91 record with a 2.48 ERA. He has played exclusively for the Dodgers, winning three Cy Young Awards and five ERA titles.
