Kershaw unaffected by split fingernail

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Opening Day starter Clayton Kershaw, who has a split nail of the middle finger on his pitching hand, made his regular bullpen session Saturday and dismissed it as a non-issue.

"I get this all the time," said Kershaw, who threw all of his pitches in the session and impressed catcher Dioner Navarro. "It's nothing. Hiro [Hiroki Kuroda] has all the tools to take care of it."

Kershaw has made three spring starts and hasn't allowed an earned run in 11 1/3 innings. He is scheduled to start again Tuesday.
