DENVER -- The Los Angeles Dodgers moved staff ace?Clayton Kershaw to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, a move more procedural in nature than indicative of his recovery timetable. Discount Air Max 2018 Online .Kershaw had been on the 15-day disabled list since June 27, the day after a start at Pittsburgh when he came away with a lower back injury. He was diagnosed with a mild disk herniation but had a setback when he participated in a simulated game shortly after the All-Star break.Kershaws move to the 60-day DL is not an indication of a new setback. He is eligible to return Aug. 27, but the Dodgers did not expect him back before that date anyway.Its more of a logistical-type move in that he wasnt going to be ready before then, manager Dave Roberts said. To get him on the 60-day, hes still doing his exercises and his progressions. Hopefully hell be back sooner than later.Roberts did indicate, though, that Kershaw still hasnt resumed baseball activities after his mid-July setback. The Dodgers have 56 games remaining in the regular season.By moving Kershaw to the 60-day DL, the Dodgers were able to open a spot on the 40-man roster to add right-handed reliever Josh Fields, acquired from the Houston Astros at Mondays non-waiver trade deadline. Fields was also added to the active roster, along with pitchers Julio Urias and Brock Stewart.The Dodgers placed two players on the disabled list Wednesday: right-hander Luis Coleman (right shoulder fatigue) and left-hander Adam Liberatore (left elbow inflammation). Outfielder Andrew Toles was optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.Kershaw was 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA and in the midst of a historic season after his first 16 starts. He had 145 strikeouts at the time -- which is only now tied for first in the majors -- and only nine walks and still easily leads the Dodgers in strikeouts even though he hasnt pitched in more than a month.Last week, Kershaw said he was hopeful to make a return this season and have an impact down the stretch, but the Dodgers have no guarantees that he will return this season.Asked when Kershaw would have to resume baseball activities in order to be able to pitch again this season, Roberts said, I think were taking the approach of, hes going to get back as soon as he can.When hes able to pick up a baseball [to start playing catch], at that point and time well see where were at and if its even feasible, he said. But we expect it to work. Weve been reluctant with Clayton to give him a deadline or a timetable or anything like that. Cheap Air Max 90 2018 Purple .
