Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw (forearm) is expected to rejoin the starting rotation early next week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The veteran left-hander came through Tuesday's rehab start with no issues after throwing 49 pitches over three innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City, clearing the way for his return from the injured list. Given that workload, Kershaw is slated to be limited to about four innings or 60 pitches in his first major-league start since early July. Per Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times, the 33-year-old will throw a bullpen session Friday and is tentatively penciled in to start Monday against the Diamondbacks.
