Kershaw put on DL with biceps tendinitis

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was put on the 10-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis.

The 30-year-old left-hander is 1-4 with a 2.68 ERA this season with 48 strikeouts and 10 walks in 44 innings. He allowed two runs and six hits over six innings on Tuesday against Arizona.

A three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw is on the disabled list for the fourth time. He was sidelined from March 23 to May 5, 2014, with a major muscle strain in his back, from June 27 to Sept. 9, 2016, with a herniated disk in his lower back and from July 24 to Sept. 1 last year with a lower back strain.

Kershaw is earning $30.4 million this year in the fifth season of a $215 million, seven-year contract.

Los Angeles recalled right-hander Brock Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
