SAN DIEGO – Reporting no discomfort in his troublesome right hip, Clayton Kershaw threw a full-length bullpen session on Tuesday.
The session put Kershaw in line to pitch on Friday against the Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium.
“That would be his day,” Manager Don Mattingly said.
Kershaw was more guarded about his plans.
“I don’t know,” he said. “We’ll see what they let me do.”
But if he had a vote?
“As soon as possible,” he said. “Tomorrow.”
Kershaw’s bullpen session came two days after a start in Cincinnati.
After his previous start, in Arizona on Sept. 11, he wasn’t able to throw off the mound until 11 days later.
