MILWAUKEE (AP) Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is returning to Los Angeles for tests on a sore back that's been bothering him for a few weeks.
Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that he was still hopeful Kershaw could make his next scheduled start Friday night at Dodger Stadium against Colorado.
The three-time NL Cy Young winner is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA this season. He lost his last start on Sunday in Pittsburgh, giving up four runs and nine hits in six innings.
