Dodgers News: Update On Rich Hill’s Blister, Clayton Kershaw’s Leg

For the first time since hitting the disabled list again after his start on April 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Rich Hill has began throwing without any sort of protection on his left finger.

Multiple reports said that Rich Hill came out of his last throwing session without any sort of pain or interference from the blister on his left middle finger.

Rich Hill is eligible to come off of the disabled list as soon as the team feels that he is healthy enough to make an appearance. With Julio Urias officially entering the fray, someone would have to be sent down or moved to the bullpen, not including Alex Wood who will be moved back after his start against the San Francisco Giants.

In Tuesday night’s game, Clayton Kershaw suffered what seemed to be a minor leg injury. He was hit in the right calf thanks to a ground ball off the bat of Hunter Pence.

Clayton Kershaw revealed that he is not concerned about his leg injury that he suffered early on in his start against the San Francisco Giants, although his leg was wrapped to prevent any swelling.

Per’s Ken Gurnick, Kershaw was out performing his usual routine on days after he makes a start.

All in all, it was an afternoon of positive news for the Dodger pitching staff.
