    Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Reports soreness during bullpen
    6m ago

    Kershaw (shoulder) reported soreness during Saturday's bullpen session and could have his rehab outing scheduled for Tuesday pushed back, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Kershaw completed three innings in a rehab outing at Single-A Ranchero Cucamonga on Wednesday and was expected to jump up to Triple-A Oklahoma City for Tuesday's outing. However, he may need more time between rehab appearances after feeling soreness in his shoulder during a bullpen session Saturday. Even if Kershaw does have to push back his next outing, he's still not expected back until near the All-Star break.

    The Angels recalled Zuniga from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

    With Patrick Sandoval (elbow) hitting the 15-day IL, Zuniga will join the Angels active roster for the first time since suffering a pectoral strain in early April. In four appearances with Los Angeles, Zuniga logged a 7.20 ERA and wasn't much better at Salt Lake, posting a 7.36 ERA in 7.1 innings. Still, he figures to be an option in the back end of the Angels bullpen.

    Bednar missed out on a save chance Saturday as Aroldis Chapman stepped up in the ninth to close out the win. Bednar's absence was planned after feeling the tightness during his pregame throwing program but the injury isn't considered to be serious at this point. If he ends up missing more than just Saturday's game, expect Chapman to continue to see save chances.

    The first baseman took Carlos Carrasco deep in the fourth inning, but it was all the offense the Blue Jays could muster in a 7-1 loss. Guerrero hadn't gone yard since June 6, and while he continues to scald the ball -- he's in the 99th percentile in average exit velocity and hard-hit rate -- a 5.9 degree average launch angle is costing him power.
