Dodgers Ace Returning Sooner Than Expected; Will Not Require Rehab Assignment

Los Angeles Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw is not expected to require a minor league rehab assignment before he returns to the Dodgers' rotation. 

Manager Dave Roberts said that, if there are no setbacks, Kershaw will throw a bullpen session on Monday and a 3/4 inning sim game later in the week, and then he'll be activated. 

The thirty-four-year-old is, of course, having another fantastic season, throwing a 2.64 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 88 strikeouts over 85 innings. He has a 7-3 record.
