Dodgers manager provides update on Clayton Kershaw’s progress

Clayton Kershaw

The Los Angeles Dodgers still have not set a target date for when Clayton Kershaw will return to the starting rotation, but it sounds like the left-hander continues to trend in the right direction.

Kershaw made a rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday night, and the velocity on his fastball hovered around 90 mph. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts described that on Friday as a “tick up” from where Kershaw was in his bullpen sessions during spring training.

Kershaw might make another rehab start, but it sounds like he is not all that far from returning to the major league club.

The Dodgers are obviously playing things safe with their ace, as all of the recent updates we have heard about him lately have been positive. It would be a surprise if he was not back in LA by the end of the month.
