Clayton Kershaw’s long road to recovery is in its final days as the left-hander is expected to take the mound Tuesday when the Los Angeles Dodgers face the Washington Nationals. While Kershaw set to return is a positive turn of events for the Dodgers, the team announced Friday Hyun-Jin Ryu was placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his shoulder. Ryu said it’s similar to an injury he suffered in 2011, which he recovered from by resting for 10 days.

The Dodgers were actively adjusting their roster on multiple days throughout out the week. Red Patterson was called up from Triple-A to pitch in the nightcap of Thursday’s doubleheader, then was sent back down on Friday as the Dodgers recalled Jose Dominguez and Chone Figgins.
