Clayton Kershaw

All eyes are on the Dodgers’ ace, as he has yet to make an appearance this spring due to his shoulder. Manager Dave Roberts said that Kershaw didn’t feel good while playing catch yesterday. He’ll test out the shoulder again on Thursday.

As of now, no MRI is currently scheduled. According to Roberts, the training staff doesn’t believe he needs one.

“I think right now the main thought for us is just see how it feels Thursday and we can kind of set out a schedule at that point,” Roberts said. “Right now, we feel good about what we’re doing as a staff, as an organization, and we’ll go from there.”

Corey Seager

Easing his way back into the fold of the things, Seager took his first swings against live pitching yesterday. He faced Pedro Baez and came out of it ‘feeling fine’. He could get into a minor league “B” game next week.

Roberts spoke about what he’s seen so far from Seager in his recovery process. “Corey’s in a really good place,” Roberts said. “Obviously, you see the body. This is as good as I’ve seen him look. Even yesterday watching him run the bases, his gait looks really good. Building him out — as far as his arm strength — he’s in a really good place. He’s going to spend a lot more time on the backfields this spring as far as taking at-bats, playing defensive innings, with the goal in mind to have him ready for Opening Day.”
