Manager Dave Roberts confirmed Kershaw (forearm) will return from the 60-day injured list to start Monday's series opener versus the Diamondbacks in Los Angeles, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

In what will mark his first outing with the Dodgers since July 3, Kershaw will take the hill on five days' rest after he completed a three-inning rehab start Sept. 7 for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He tossed 49 pitches in that outing, so the Dodgers are likely preparing for Kershaw to give them around four innings or 60 pitches in Monday's start. Kershaw is lined up to make his second start of the week Sunday in Cincinnati, where he'll likely be able to work deeper into the outing and have a better shot at factoring into any decision.
