    • Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that the team expects Kershaw (back) to return this season, but Roberts also said that based on his personal experience, season-ending surgery is also a possibility, SportsNetLA's Alanna Rizzo reports. Season-ending surgery would be a death blow for the Dodgers and Kershaw's fantasy owners, and given Kershaw's work ethic it seems like he will exhaust all avenues of getting back on the mound this season. There is really nothing for Kershaw's owners to do other than hope for the best at this point. He has been temporarily shut down until his back pain subsides and is without a timetable to resume throwing.

    • Manager Dave Roberts indicated Sunday that Kershaw (back) won't be ready to throw Thursday but didn't rule out a return for the St. Louis series beginning Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Kershaw most recently threw a 60-pitch simulated game Saturday, and it appears nothing concerning surfaced following the session. The Dodgers certainly want to avoid any re-injury risk for their ace but it appears a return may be in sight. More on his timetable should arise as the week progresses.

    • Kershaw (back) threw approximately 60 pitches in a simulated game Saturday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. The three-time Cy Young winner cleared a significant hurdle on his road to recovery, repeating his workload from Wednesday's standard bullpen session, this time against live hitters. Manager Dave Roberts said the team will wait and see how Kershaw feels Sunday morning before determining whether the lefty will need a minor league rehab start. If not, Kershaw could theoretically return as soon as Thursday against the Nationals.

    • Kershaw (back) will face hitters Saturday, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports. It was reported earlier Thursday that Kershaw was going to face hitters Sunday, but he'll be bumped up a day to Saturday. The Dodgers have yet to announce how many innings he'll toss Saturday, but there is a growing sentiment that Kershaw will be able to come off the disabled list without going out on a rehab assignment. A further update on Kershaw's timetable figures to be made available after he throws Saturday.

    • Kershaw (back) will likely throw a simulated game Sunday, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports. Kershaw's recovery from a back injury continues to progress well and he'll take another step in the right direction by facing live hitters Sunday. He threw a 60-pitch bullpen Wednesday, according to McCullough, and the Dodgers are trying to determine whether Kershaw will need to go out on a rehab assignment before rejoining the rotation. More information on Kershaw's outlook figures to be made available after he throws Sunday.
