THE ANGELS – The Los Angeles Dodgers placed left-hander Clayton Kershaw on the disabled list Friday, a day after he left a start with lower back pain.
This is the 34-year-old Kershaw’s second trip to the disabled list this season. He was previously sidelined by inflammation in a pelvic joint.
The three-time National League Cy Young Award winner was warming up before the fifth inning of a 5-3 win over San Francisco on Thursday when he grimaced and pointed to the Dodgers dugout. He then walked off the field with a trainer.
Kershaw, a nine-time All-Star, is 7-3 with a 2.64 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 85 1/3 innings.
Also on Friday, the Dodgers activated utility man Chris Taylor, who had missed a month with a fractured left foot. He is hitting .238 with six home runs and 27 RBIs in 74 games.
The Dodgers also recalled righty Reyes Moronta and option outfielder James Outman.
Moronta is 0-0 with a 4.67 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings. Outman went 6-for-13 with a home run and three RBIs in four games with the Dodgers.
