Smyly returns from bereavement list for Saturday start originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Cubs left-hander Drew Smyly returns from the bereavement list Saturday to start the 12:05 p.m. doubleheader opener against the Dodgers.

He'll face three-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw (3-0, 2.35 ERA).

Smyly was scratched from Tuesday's start against the White Sox. He's 1-2 with a 2.79 ERA in four starts this season.

Lefty reliever Daniel Norris is scheduled to start Saturday's 6:40 p.m. nightcap as the Cubs' opener, his first start since his first apperance in 2020, for Detroit.

Norris faces Dodgers left-hander Tyler Anderson (2-0, 2.55), who originally was scheduled to start Friday.

The nightcap is the makeup game from Friday's postponement of the series opener.
