Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Dodgers transferred LHP Clayton Kershaw from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list. The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster as the Dodgers made a couple of waiver claims on Monday. It doesn't really impact Kershaw's timetable, as he's had to slow things down working his way back from a forearm injury. The earliest he can return is September 5.
