MONTERREY, Mexico – Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was put on the 10-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis and returned to Los Angeles on Sunday for tests.

Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said the left-hander got hurt before Saturday*s game against San Diego.

“It*s little bit head-scratching, but we have to keep moving forward,” Roberts said. “I know he*s frustrated, because he wants to carry the load.”

Kershaw is 1-4 with a 2.68 ERA this season with 48 strikeouts and 10 walks in 44 innings.

“I got word from the training staff yesterday when he was trying to play catch that it just was not feeling right,” Roberts said. “He said that during his last start he felt it just a little bit, and we gave him a couple of extra days.”

Kershaw allowed two runs and six hits over six innings on Tuesday against Arizona. Roberts hopes the injury is limited to the biceps.

“If it was more of a other part of the arm, it would be more concerning, but being the biceps we are more hopeful,” Roberts said.

Kershaw will be examined by head team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

A three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw is on the disabled list for the fourth time.
