Clayton Kershaw Will Miss Sunday Start, See Hip Specialist In New York Tuesday

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be without Clayton Kershaw this Sunday, as the Dodgers ace will miss his scheduled start with hip pain. Kershaw had an earlier start pushed back due to the same issue. He will see a hip specialist in New York while the team travels to Washington for a series against the Nationals.

Stephen File will take his place on Sunday, according to David Vassegh of KLAC-570.

Kershaw missed his start at San Francisco last Sunday, but after a cortisone shot he was able to pitch two days later at the Arizona Diamondbacks. He made a strong showing there but took the loss despite only giving up one run over seven innings.

Kershaw has been key for the Dodgers this season, and he leads the league in strikeouts (206), WHIP (1.016), innings (206 2/3) and has the second lowest ERA (2.70).
