PHOENIX -- It is more of the same for Howie Kendrick and Alex Guerrero, who were held out of the Dodgers' lineup against the Athletics on Thursday at Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, still dealing with their injuries.
There is still no MRI scheduled for Kendrick, who is dealing with a sore right groin, and Guerrero is still nursing a sore left knee. On Wednesday, both showed progress.
Howie Kendrick (right groin soreness) going thru light workout today. BP, taking grounders, no running. Better but still day to day #Dodgers— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) March 9, 2016
Alex Guerrero (knee) is improved enough to do fielding drills.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) March 9, 2016
Kendrick last played on Saturday, Guerrero on Friday.

Kenta Maeda makes his second start for the Dodgers.
Hyun-jin Ryu, who played catch on Tuesday and Wednesday, said he felt good and would likely throw a bullpen session next week per his running diary on naver.com (thanks to Joseph Kim for the note).
Ron Cey and Cesar Izturis were in Dodgers camp on Wednesday morning as guest instructors.
The Dodgers' 13-13 tie with the Angels on Wednesday was their second of the spring. Just six more to go to catch last year's franchise record of eight ties during spring training.
Cody Bellinger was 3-for-3 Wednesday and is 6-for-9 this spring.
No local TV or radio for Thursday's game, but there will be a free audio webcast on Athletics.com.
