Friedman: No back surgery expected for Clayton Kershaw

LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw is unlikely to need back surgery for the herniated disk that sidelined the Dodgers ace for 2 + months during the season, according to president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman.

Kershaw returned in early September, but never publicly went into detail about his back injury. In his absence, the team went 38-24 and overtook the rival Giants for first place in the NL West, eventually winning their fourth straight division title.

"Like all of our guys, we have exit physicals and conversations with trainers and doctors," Friedman said Monday. "I'm sure that will take place and I don't expect it to be anything that's newsworthy."
