Clayton Kershaw (back) will make rehab start Saturday

Clayton Kershaw (back) will make a rehab start on Saturday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fantasy Impact

Los Angeles is playing it safe here by giving Kershaw a rehab outing before coming back. There was originally speculation that he could start this weekend, but that's no longer the case. The 30-year-old could return by the end of next week if all goes well on Saturday.

Clayton Kershaw potentially will start against Mets this weekend

Clayton Kershaw threw a successful simulated game on Monday and Dave Roberts is undecided whether he will pitch against the Mets or in a rehab start for his next step.

Fantasy Impact

Kershaw said he felt good, but the Dodgers may want to be cautious with their ace and give him a rehab start before activating him. Given the Mets' struggles on offense, however, the Dodgers may risk it. If you're in a weekly league and need to make a choice by the time lineups lock, it's probably better to be cautious and keep Kershaw in your DL slot, as he may be on a pitch count even if he does start against the Mets.

Clayton Kershaw to throw simulated game

Clayton Kershaw is slated to throw a simulated game early this week, either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

He's expected to go three or four innings during the simulated game, and then he'll require a rehab start. He could be ready for activation at that point, which would put him back in late June or early July. He's been sidelined by a back injury, but he's pitched well when he's been healthy this season.

Clayton Kershaw (back) throws from 60 feet

Clayton Kershaw (back) threw with "good intensity" from 60 feet on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It's another small step in the rehab process for the three time Cy Young winner and former MVP. Kershaw has spent time on the DL with back issues in each of the past three years. He's expected to be out until early July this time around.

Clayton Kershaw resumes playing catch

Clayton Kershaw was able to resume playing catch on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

While this is a step in the right direction, Kershaw remains several weeks away from returning to the Dodgers. While Kershaw is likely to be effective when he returns, the cloudy timeframe for return makes it hard to value him in redraft leagues.
