(TSX / STATS) -- Los Angeles Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw will throw a three-inning, 45-pitch simulated game in Pittsburgh on Monday.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Sunday that the 29-year-old Kershaw is expected to pitch a rehab game next weekend with either Double-A Tulsa or Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Umpires unite against verbal abuse

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Two of the four umpires working Saturday's Los Angeles-Detroit Major League Baseball game wore white wristbands in support of the umpire association's stand against what it feels is increasing verbal abuse of its members.

Granderson debuts with run, Dodgers win

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- How a popup was handled -- mishandled if you will -- was a graphic illustration in Los Angeles' 3-0 victory on Saturday of why the Dodgers are going strong and the Detroit Tigers are struggling.
