MLB Report: Kershaw lands again on IL

The Los Angeles Dodgers put left-hander Clayton Kershaw on their injury list Friday, a day after he left the start with lower back pain.

This is 34-year-old Kershaw’s second trip to the injury list this season. Previously sidelined by inflammation in the pelvic joint.

Kershaw underwent an X-ray and MRI on Friday, but manager Dave Roberts didn’t know the results before the Los Angeles-versus-San Diego game.

“I hope it’s shorter than taller,” Roberts said.

Roberts said he’s reluctant to give a timeline until the MRI results come in.

Kershaw’s previous back injury was on the right side, and this injury is more on the left side, according to Roberts.

The three-time NL Cy Young winner was on hand before the fifth inning of the 5-3 win over San Francisco on Thursday when he winced and pointed at the Dodgers dug. In the end he walked off the field with a coach.

Kershaw, a nine-time All-Star, is 7-3 with a 2.64 ERA and 88 strokes in 85 1/3 inning.

Also on Friday, the Dodgers activated companion man Chris Taylor, who had missed a month with a broken left foot. He hits .238 with six eyebrows and 27 RBI in 74 games.

The Dodgers also called up right-hander Reyes Moronta and selected defensive player James Ottman.

Dustin May, who had Tommy John surgery last year, is heading back soon and could be a candidate to fill Kershaw’s place in the rotation. Another rehab may begin Tuesday in Triple-A Oklahoma City.

“The world would look different then,” Roberts said. “Then we’ll make a decision on whether he should make another decision, which is more likely, so now you’re looking at someone in our system to do that (next start). (Ryan) Pepiot definitely makes sense.”

Astros: Manager Dusty Baker tested positive for COVID-19 prior to Friday night’s game against the Cleveland Guardians.

Becker maintained his usual pre-match availability with the media approximately two hours before the 7:10 p.m. game. The announcement of the positive test came after the start of the match.

the Red: Rising right Hunter Greene was put on the casualty list for 15 days due to a strain in his right shoulder.

Green, who turns 23 on Saturday, appears to have turned the corner in his young career over the past month, posting 2.70 ERAs over his last four games with 29 strikes and eight walks over the course of 23 1/3 runs. He handed a gem one last time to him, holding the Marlins with a one-stroke while hitting an eight without going over six goalless runs.

Friday games

Cubes 2, Marlins 1: Wilson Contreras hit Homer by two in the eighth inning, Justin Steele hit a career high with 10 hits, and Chicago a home win.

The Cubs looked like they were heading for a sixth straight loss before Contreras led 0-1 on the field from Dylan Floro (0-1) to leave in eighth for the 16th hometown, waking the sleepy fans.

Chicago’s only hits up to that point were Nick Madrigal’s singles, moving up to number six and eight. Hap also doubled in eight.

Steele went 4 2/3 runs, allowed four hits and one walk while throwing 93 shots. Rowan Wake (3-5) got all four finals.

The race that Contreras runs at home was punctuated by an emotional stretch that included standing ovations during the previous home game on July 26.

“That was amazing,” Contreras said. “I was looking forward to doing something special there.”

Contreras, set to become a free agent, and Ian Hap got warm receptions when they hit in the first half. Fans who thought both stars would be traded didn’t have much to cheer until the big race on their turf.

Contreras released him as he circled the bases and made his way to the bunker. Could he have imagined a moment like this at Wrigley Field a few days ago?

“After I haven’t been traded, for sure,” he said.

Contreras said he was having a hard time focusing as the trade deadline approached. She slipped poorly in July averaging .149, one homer and four RBI in 19 games.

“I just wanted it to be over, even if I traded or not,” he said. “I wanted to be in a place where I could play baseball. It didn’t happen. It’s over. I’m still here, and now, I feel good.”

Miami’s Edward Cabrera threw five rounds uninjured on his first start since June 12.

And Joe Wendell singled out in the seventh round for the Marlins, who lost for the sixth time in seven games.

“You couldn’t write it better, could you,” Steele said of Contreras’s home run. “That is it. He is a special player. It is really great to keep him as a member of the team.”
