Los Angeles Dodgersleft-handerClayton Kershaw is scheduled to pitch a rehab game Saturday night for Triple-A Oklahoma City, the team announced.

Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt told reporters that Kershaw would throw approximately 60 pitches Saturday when the Triple-A Dodgers host the Omaha Storm Chasers, theRoyals' Triple-A affiliate.

Kershaw pitched four innings in a simulated game in Pittsburgh on Monday.

The three-time Cy Young winner, rehabbing from a back issue, was scheduled to throw three innings, but when that was done he came back for a fourth.

After the outing, Kershaw told Spectrum SportsNet LAthat he could pitch in a major league game tomorrow, but that the team knows the next step. He said he's healthy and ready.

The Dodgers' ace has been sidelined since July 24.
