Clayton Kershaw unlikely to be ready for Opening Day

Kershaw is slowly making progress and successfully got through a bullpen session on Thursday. The good news is it doesn’t sound like Kershaw will miss much time at the start of the season, but the Dodgers have every reason to be cautious with their ace left-hander given the injury issues he’s had over the last few years. Someone else will get the honor of the Opening Day nod.
