Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will make his first major league start of 2019 at home Monday against the Cincinnati Reds, the Dodgers announced Thursday.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner, working his way back after dealing with left shoulder inflammation during spring training, threw six innings on Tuesday night for Double-A Tulsa. He gave up five hits and two runs — both on home runs — in six innings. He struck out six and walked none.

His first rehab start came on April 4 with Triple-A Oklahoma City, when he tossed 4 1/3 innings and allowed two runs on four hits, including a home run, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Last season, Kershaw finished with a 9-5 record and a 2.73 ERA in 26 starts. In his 11-year career, the left-hander is 153-69 with a 2.39 ERA.
