Clayton Kershaw hasn’t missed a start this season. That will change tonight, according to multiple reports Wednesday morning. Right-hander Mike Bolsinger is starting against the A’s instead:

Kershaw has dealt with hip problems in the past. It’s not yet clear whether this injury is related to those in the past. He is currently riding a streak of 29 consecutive scoreless innings.

Bolsinger is 5-3 with a 2.79 earned-run average in 15 starts this season. The 27-year-old right-hander has never faced the A’s in his career. His last start was seven days ago against the Atlanta Braves, in which he allowed only one unearned run in seven innings. Bolsinger was scheduled to pitch this weekend.

Update (5:30 p.m.): Bolsinger is indeed starting for the Dodgers tonight. Kershaw said he has a sore right hip and will start Friday against the Angels at Dodger Stadium.
