LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers could get a pair of injured infielders back into the fold at some point next week. Justin Turner and Logan Forsythe could both be on a rehab assignment this weekend.
It has yet to be determined where the two will be sent but it will be together. “To see those guys return together wouldn’t be the craziest thing,” manager Dave Roberts said.
Turner has yet to play this season after a pitch hit his wrist in spring training, causing a small non-displaced fracture. There has been a big hole in the Dodgers lineup that Turner will fill whenever he comes back.
Forsythe has been on the shelf since April 14 with inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

Daily Kershaw Update
Clayton Kershaw played catch Wednesday and didn’t sound excited about the results. “He said it felt okay,” Roberts said. “He didn’t say it felt great, didn’t say it felt bad. I think fine might have been the word he used.”
Not exactly the most glowing of reports.
Roberts added that he wasn’t sure what the next step in the program was for Kershaw or when he would even pick up a ball again. But then Kershaw was on the field playing catch again not five minutes later.

Setback for Tolesy
For those who have been clamoring for Andrew Toles to make his return to the ball club, there is still not good news in that department. Toles had another setback last week trying to recover from a hamstring injury.
