MILWAUKEE (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw received an epidural injection for his sore lower back and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, manager Dave Roberts said before Thursday's game in Milwaukee.

"Clayton yesterday got an epidural, so at this point we're going to put him on the disabled list," Robert said. "And use the All-Star break, obviously, with the four days. And in the coming days, we should know more how that epidural . how he responds to that and that will give us some more direction."

Roberts did not know how long Kershaw is expected to be out, or who would make his scheduled start Friday at home against Colorado.
