Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw placed on injured list with SI joint inflammation

The Los Angeles Dodgers star Clayton Kershaw will go on the injured list with right SI joint inflammation, the team announced Friday. The SI, or sacroiliac joints, are located in one’s lower back.

Kershaw, 34, has been dominant this season, with a 4-0 record, 1.80 ERA and 32 strikeouts over 30 innings. He’s walked only two batters and is allowing hits at a lower rate than at any time in his career. He pitched seven perfect innings in his first start and passed Don Sutton to set the franchise record for strikeouts on April 30.
