As first reported by Los Angeles Times beat writer Dylan Hernandez, Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday night with the High-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League.

Kershaw will throw 50-55 pitches in his first rehab outing, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, and will make at least one more minor league start after that. There is no official timetable yet for his return to the Dodgers’ rotation.

The left-hander has been on the disabled list since March 29 with a teres major muscle strain. His lone start so far this season was at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia on March 22, in which he tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball versus the Diamondbacks.

    Out on the edge of the empty highway, I’m sure Kershaw will be pride of Cucamonga.

    No one in the NL West took advantage of ClaYton’s absence! Still in first place. Let’s Go Dodgers!
