The Los Angeles Dodgers’ playoff push just got a lot harder.

The team announced Wednesday it has placed ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw on the 60-day disabled list. The left-hander won’t be eligible to return to the mound until August 27.

Bad news for Dodgers fans, but good news for the Boston Red Sox — the team is set to face L.A. in a three-game road series on Friday.

Check out the video above for more on Kershaw’s injury.
