Player Notes
Clayton Kershaw (back) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Tuesday.

Advice: It'll be the first time he has faced live hitters since being shut down with the back ailment. If all goes well, he could then be cleared for a minor league rehab start.

Clayton Kershaw (back) made it through Friday's bullpen session without any issues and will progress to facing live hitters next week.

Advice: It's another positive step toward a return to the Dodgers rotation this season for the star southpaw. If all goes well with his next session, he could be cleared for a minor league rehab start. Barring any setbacks, a return in early September doesn't look so outrageous any longer.

Clayton Kershaw (back) is expected to throw a 60-pitch bullpen session Thursday or Friday.

Advice: Kershaw made it through a 50-pitch bullpen session Tuesday in Los Angeles without experiencing any sort of abnormal discomfort in his back. He'll take the next few days off before trying a more intensive workout. Kershaw said Tuesday that he expects to rejoin the Dodgers after just one minor league rehab start, but it's not exactly clear when that start will happen. He's been on the disabled list since late June because of a herniated disc in his lower back.

Clayton Kershaw (back) threw around 50 pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Advice: "I felt good again today," he told reporters after the workout, before adding that he's not sure what the next step will be. Kershaw has two successful bullpen sessions under his belt and could be ready to face live hitters in a batting practice or simulated setting. The ace left-hander has been sidelined since late June because a herniated disc in his lower back.

Clayton Kershaw (back) will throw approximately 40 pitches in another bullpen session Tuesday.

Advice: He got through a 22-pitch bullpen session Saturday with no issues in what was his first time throwing off a mound since going down with a herniated disc in his lower back nearly two months ago. It's unclear what the next step is after Tuesday's 'pen session, but Kershaw might be ready to face hitters after that.

Clayton Kershaw (back) said he felt "100 percent" during Saturday's bullpen session.

Advice: Kershaw has missed almost two months with a herniated disc in his lower back but has begun to make big strides in his progress. With the way he's progressing, it would be an upset if he isn't back in the Dodgers' rotation early next month. The Dodgers could sure use him with Hyun-Jin Ryu (elbow) and Brandon McCarthy (hip) on the shelf.

Clayton Kershaw (back) said Friday that the Dodgers have a "good plan" in place that has him returning before the end of the regular season.

Advice: Kershaw declined to reveal any particulars of the plan. He's throwing a bullpen session Saturday after getting through a handful of flat ground sessions with no issues. Obviously, he still has some hurdles to clear before he rejoins the Dodgers' rotation.
