Mark your calendars, Dodgers fans. It looks like Clayton Kershaw’s 2019 season debut is upon us.

Dave Roberts said Kershaw will be making his debut at Dodger Stadium on either Sunday or Monday, Alanna Rizzo reported.

Should he get the start on Sunday, he’d face the Brewers. If he starts on Monday, it will be against the Reds.

Kershaw threw 81 pitches in six innings last night in Tulsa. He allowed two runs and struck out six.

Russell Martin headed to the injured list

Earlier today, it was announced that Martin would be heading to the 10-day IL with lower back inflammation. The Dodgers called up catcher Rocky Gale from Oklahoma City to fill his place. Click here to read more about that move.

Updates on Rich Hill and Hyun-Jin Ryu

Hill is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Friday in Los Angeles. He’s expected to go three or four innings. If all goes well, the next step for him would be to make a rehab start.

As for Ryu, he threw on a flat ground today, simulating his motion. He will do that again on Friday.
