Dodgers News: Clayton Kershaw Throws Successful Bullpen Session

The Dodgers have now been without Clayton Kershaw for almost a month. On July 23rd, Kershaw exited his start early after feeling tightness in his lower back.

The initial rumored timetable was 4-6 weeks so it’s making sense that Kershaw is already throwing bullpen sessions.

On Friday, Alanna Rizzo reported that he threw a bullpen session consisting of about 35 pitches and, according to Dave Roberts, it seems to have went well.

Also, the fact that Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to throw another bullpen session in just a few days shows just how much his injury has improved. Hopefully Kershaw can come back soon enough to have 4 or 5 starts before heading into the playoffs.

  1. He’s been sidelined about 17 or 18 days, not a month like the article incorrectly reports. Stop exaggerating please. More drama.
