As the Los Angeles Dodgers resumed their regular season schedule on Sunday, Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw found themselves on the disabled list and on Tuesday it became evident they’re in different situations.

Seemingly fully recovered from off-season ankle surgery, Kemp remains a possibility to be activated in time for the home opener on April 4, while it was announced Kershaw would be placed on a limited throwing regimen for two to three weeks as he continues to deal with the inflammation in his back.

Following the rehab, Kershaw will be re-evaluated to determine when he can re-join the Dodgers. However, even if Kershaw makes enough progress to be deemed healthy by the date of his evaluation, manager Don Mattingly said he would need to make a rehab start, whereas Kemp would not.
