Kershaw struck out seven, walked one and retired his last 15 batters in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Angels.
Analysis: Kershaw's previous start was a three-hit shutout on July 23 at New York in which he took a perfect game into the seventh inning. The three-time Cy Young Award winner hasn't given up a run since Wilmer Flores' RBI single for the Mets on July 3 at Dodger Stadium.
Conforto's minor league assignment lasted all of one day. The New York Mets recalled their top hitting prospect from Triple-A Las Vegas when fellow outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with discomfort in his neck and left shoulder.
Analysis: Conforto was optioned to Las Vegas on Saturday to make room for slugger Yoenis Cespedes, acquired Friday in a deadline deal with Detroit. But the rookie never even left New York, and he was back on the big league roster before Sunday night's series finale against Washington. The addition of Cespedes created a bit of a logjam in the outfield, where Gold Glove center fielder Juan Lagares (.280 on-base percentage) is being pushed to the bench as the Mets seek more offense.
Analysis: The Atlanta shortstop is expected to have an MRI on Monday and will likely miss a few days, the Braves' official website reported. "There is no timetable. We're on top of it. We'll get him some ice and treatment and see how quickly we can get him back on the field," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Atlanta is expected to use Daniel Castro as Simmons' replacement.
Bryant has left Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers following a headfirst slide at second base.
Analysis: Bryant singled home Kyle Schwarber in the top of the fifth to give the Cubs a 4-1 lead and he tried for second after the Brewers threw home. The play was cut off and the Brewers tried to get Bryant at second. Shortstop Jean Segura appeared to tag Bryant on his helmet, before Bryant's neck or upper back appeared to hit Segura's leg on the slide.
The New York Yankees have placed reliever Diego Moreno on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.
Analysis: Moreno allowed four runs and four hits in three innings in the Yankees' 8-2 loss to the White Sox on Saturday. Manager Joe Girardi says Moreno will be examined by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad on Monday.
The Tampa Bay Rays have demoted left-hander Matt Moore to the minors to continue his comeback from Tommy John surgery. He will go to Triple-A Durham and pitch on a regular schedule. Manager Kevin Cash said the Rays are shifting to a four-man rotation and they didn't want Moore to move to the bullpen.
Analysis: Moore (1-3) made his sixth start since returning from the April 2014 surgery on Saturday and gave up six runs on nine hits, walking one and striking out two in an 11-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox. He's failed to go past five innings in his comeback.
