Rosenthal: Dodgers' Kershaw could be scratched from Wednesday start
Los Angeles Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw might be scratched from his start Wednesday night against the Oakland Athletics, FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal first reported.
And, no, Kershaw isn't about to be traded.
Apparently, Kershaw is dealing with a sore hip/glute.

Kershaw will bring a 29-inning scoreless streak into his next start. In his past three outings, he has two complete-game shutouts and has fanned 38 batters while walking none.
Overall this season, the reigning NL MVP and CY Young Award winner is 8-6 with a 2.51 ERA in 20 starts. He has struck out a major-league-leading 185 batters in 140 innings.
