MLB notebook: Dodgers hopeful Kershaw can start Game 4


ARLINGTON, Texas — Clayton Kershaw is a likely possibility to start Game 4 of the National League Championship Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers if the left-hander’s back continues to improve, Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday.


But again, this is making sure Clayton feels good tomorrow when he wakes up and the training staff gives us our blessing as well.”


The person, confirming a USA Today report, spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Angels typically do not comment on personnel matters.


A three-time World Series-winning manager, the 76-year-old La Russa joined the Angels prior to this season as senior advisor of baseball operations.


The White Sox decided not to keep Rick Renteria after losing in the first round of the playoffs, following a breakthrough season in which they made the postseason for the first time since 2008.


La Russa is 2,728-2,365 with six pennants over 33 seasons with Chicago, Oakland and St. Louis and was enshrined in Cooperstown in 2014.
