Can confirm Kershaw won't pitch tonight. #Dodgers hoping he will pitch Sat or Sun. Mike Bolsinger will get the start tonight.

More on Kershaw: Told hip/glute is sore. #Dodgers deciding whether to start Bolsinger today and push Kershaw to Friday or stay as is.

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.
