It was reported earlier Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw would return from his lengthy stay on the injured list for Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.
Kershaw has been sidelined with an injury to his throwing shoulder. Getting the former Cy Young winner back will be big for the Dodgers, who were just swept in a four-game series in St. Louis.
In announcing his return, the Dodgers posted this tribute-like video of Kershaw to its Twitter account. Dodgers fans will get a chill or two.

Needless to say, getting their ace back will be a boost for the two-time defending NL champs.
Kershaw, 31, has a 153-69 career record with a 2.39 ERA. He’s a difference-maker in every sense of the term.
