NEW YORK (AP) Clayton Kershaw is set to make a surprise return from the disabled list Saturday night, starting for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a marquee matchup against New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom.

Kershaw has been sidelined since June 1 with a lower back strain. The three-time Cy Young Award winner and 2014 NL MVP originally was scheduled to make a rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Oklahoma City at Omaha, but heavy rain in the forecast caused the Dodgers to change plans.

"It's probably the best thing for him and for us," manager Dave Roberts said Friday. "We don't know how much he's going to pitch. I don't want to put a limit on him. Obviously, there is a limitation with Clayton, and I'll make that decision."
