Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says he hopes starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw (back) will not need surgery.

What It Means:

Kershaw was shut down after experiencing discomfort during his simulated game on Tuesday and Roberts says that Kershaw's setback likely increases the possibility of season-ending back surgery. Hopefully his recent soreness is just that and not a sign of further herniation of the disk. Julio Urias will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City -- where he had been pitching out of the bullpen -- to make a spot start against the Washington Nationals on Thursday.

This is devastating news for Kershaw and the Dodgers, as he was having a career year, boasting a 2.28 SIERA with a 32.88 percent strikeout rate and impressive 2.04 percent walk rate. Hopefully the rest will cure his discomfort and he can avoid surgery.
