34-year-old Kershaw has made an outstanding start to his 15th season with the Dodgers. Three-time NL winner Cy Young has 32 strikeouts and only three walks in his five starts since signing a one-year $ 17 million deal in March to return to his only pro club.

Kershaw also became the leader of the Dodgers franchise in strikeouts on April 30.

Kershaw has spent time on the injury list in each of the past seven seasons. He was bothered by pain in his left arm for the entire second half of last season and missed the Dodgers playoff run.

Buehler (4-1, 1.96 ERA) is making his fill start with normal rest because the Dodgers have had a day off since his last start. He also has a great start to the season with 32 strikeouts and 1.06 WHIP.

Cleavinger is returning for his third bout with the Dodgers after conceding an earned run over 1 2/3 innings in his previous three appearances for Los Angeles this season. The Dodgers acquired him from Philadelphia in a three-team exchange in December 2020.
