Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw will make one more rehab start before rejoining the Dodgers. He’ll likely start on Wednesday with Double-A Chattanooga. Plunkett adds that Kershaw is “not happy” about it.

In his first rehab start on Friday, Kershaw held the Lancaster JetHawks to one run over five innings, striking out six and walking one in the process.

Kershaw, the defending NL Cy Young winner, had been dealing with back inflammation after returning back to the U.S. following the start of the regular season against the Diamondbacks in Australia.

    The next time a star player says he’s happy about spending additional time on a rehab assignment will be the first.

    It would be interesting to know what the team sees that Kershaw did not or did not want to acknowledge. Could it be that the Dodgers really want to give Maholm another start? Surely not that despite how good he’s been.

      I’ve got it! The Dodgers ownership financially over-extended themselves and are trying to cut down on paying performance incentives, like another Cy Young award.
      No?
      Okay, somebody else give it a shot.
