Clayton Kershaw visited an orthopedic surgeon in New York on Tuesday, but he and the Dodgers didn't offer many details about what he was told about his ailing right hip.

After the Dodgers' series-opening game against the Washington Nationals was declared a rainout, the team released a vague and carefully worded 127-word statement that said Kershaw has an impingement in his hip and is soliciting the opinions of other specialists

Kershaw hasn't been shut down for the season, but he also hasn't been penciled back into the rotation or scheduled for a bullpen session. The Dodgers' statement made no mention of the possibility of surgery to repair the labrum in his right hip, which could cause him to miss the first month of next season.
