SAN DIEGO (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez has gone on the disabled list for the first time in his 14-year big league career, with right elbow soreness.

Gonzalez had played 1,774 games without a DL trip, the most among active players.

The move was made Friday before the opener of a three-game series against the San Diego Padres.

To take Gonzalez’s roster spot, the Dodgers reinstated outfielder Joc Pederson, who had been sidelined with a right groin strain.

Manager Dave Roberts said left-hander Clayton Kershaw will start Saturday instead of Sunday. The switch was made because right-hander Brandon McCarthy, now scheduled to start Sunday, tweaked his left shoulder in the weight room.
