Kershaw on target to return after strong start
ESPN 240+ SHARES
Two-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw cleared what the Los Angeles Dodgers said was his final hurdle, pitching five strong innings in his second minor league rehab start Wednesday night in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Kershaw appears to be on target to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation in Washington next week, perhaps as early as Monday.
Kershaw gave up six hits and had to work a bit harder because his team made three errors behind him.
In his first rehab start, for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday, Kershaw threw 56 pitches over five strong innings.
The day after, Kershaw fought the Dodgers on making the second rehab start but lost the argument.
