(LOS ANGELES) — According to reports, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will have his next scheduled start pushed back to Saturday.
Kershaw was originally supposed to start Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but will instead pitch Saturday against the San Diego Padres.
The 25-year-old Kershaw leads the majors with 223 innings pitched. The move gives him an extra three days of rest.
Kershaw is 14-9 with an MLB best 1.94 ERA this season. He leads the National League with 214 strikesouts.
Stephen File will pitch for the Dodgers in Arizona on Wednesday. The 26-year-old is 4-3 in nine starts this season.
