LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was placed on the bereavement list on Monday, and on Tuesday it was revealed it was because of the death of his father in Texas.

Kershaw is expected to return to California in time to fly with the Dodgers to San Francisco on Thursday.

Kershaw, coming off a 12-strikeout win over Milwaukee, is scheduled to start Friday night against the Giants.

The Dodgers will need to make a roster move to activate Kershaw and might disable infielder Mark Ellis, who strained his right quad Friday night.
