Kershaw resumes normal activity after scare

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly delivered a lengthy update on his injured pitchers Sunday, beginning with Opening Day starter Clayton Kershaw.

The MVP resumed normal workouts after a light day Saturday in the wake of the line drive to his jaw that required treatment on two teeth.

Kershaw starts again Thursday.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was sent to Los Angeles for further exams on his left shoulder after discomfort returned during a game of catch.

Erik Bedard, who left Friday's start after one inning, will have an MRI for a strained lat Monday. Bedard said he had a similar injury earlier in his career and missed three weeks. It is in roughly the same spot as the injury suffered in last year's Australian opener by Kershaw, who missed five weeks.

Chad Gaudin, who came out of his Saturday start after feeling a tweak in his biceps, resumed throwing and is scheduled for a bullpen session Monday.

Reliever Brandon League said he felt healthy during a 15-pitch bullpen session, his first since a cortisone injection for shoulder stiffness. He plans to have another bullpen session Tuesday and could pitch in a game as early as Thursday.
