Clayton Kershaw threw what looks to be his final simulated game on Monday, at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.

Kershaw was scheduled to throw three simulated innings on Monday morning, pitching to Chase Utley, Kiké Hernandez and a surprise batter, hitting coach Turner Ward.

All reports from the media surrounding the simulated game came out positive. He even struck out hitting coach Turner Ward to end the first inning on his three-inning simulated game. (Was somewhat hoping to see Turner Ward do something amazing).

After accomplishing his three innings, Clayton Kershaw looked as though he was healthy and ready for the next step in his return to the mound in Los Angeles… What fans have all been waiting so see, a healthy Clayton Kershaw. BUT, in classic Clayton Kershaw fashion, he decided he wanted more and went out for a fourth inning on the mound.

Clayton Kershaw announced that he feels healthy and ready for the next step to get him back on the mound in Los Angeles. According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, Kershaw said that he felt healthy enough to return ten days ago, but it was obvious that the team wanted to give him as much time off as they possibly could.

According to David Vassegh of AM 570 Sports, Clayton Kershaw will be pitching in a minor league rehab game on Saturday. Expected to throw four innings. That will probably Clayton Kershaw’s lone rehab start before returning to Los Angeles.
