Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to have a root canal on Monday.

Kershaw, 27, is slated to start on Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The root canal is to take care of a tooth that he lost during the middle of spring training after taking a liner off the jaw.

In his first start of the season Kershaw went six innings allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine members of the San Diego Padres.
