Clayton Kershaw to throw three-inning, 45-pitch simulated game Monday

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Clayton Kershaw will throw a three-inning, 45-pitch simulated game in Pittsburgh on Monday.

The ace left-hander is continuing his rehab from a back issue that has sidelined him since July 23.

The three-time Cy Young winner, in the midst of another stellar season before the injury, had a 38-pitch simulated game Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. He was 15-2 with a baseball-best 2.04 ERA before the injury.

Roberts said he is expected to pitch a rehab game next weekend with either Double-A Tulsa or Triple-A Oklahoma City.
