The three-time Cy Young winner, rehabbing from a lower back strain, threw five innings in his first rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He allowed one run and two hits, did not walk a batter and struck out eight.
Of Kershaw's 64 pitches, 43 were strikes.
"Good, it was fun to get back out there," Kershaw said. "Fun to pitch again. It's been a long time.
"So I was glad to get back out there, and everything felt healthy and good to go, so I'm excited about the next one."
Kershaw, who is 15-2 with a 2.04 ERA this season, has been sidelined since July 24.
