Clayton Kershaw starts strong

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Clayton Kershaw isn’t really an ease-into-things kind of pitcher. He is the kind of guy who relentlessly attacks the strike zone until either the game ends or Don Mattingly visits him and insists on having the ball. So, Kershaw wasn’t surprised to hear he had touched 94 mph in his first inning of spring training. He was clocked by scouts behind home plate. For him the spring isn’t so much about building arm strength so he can throw harder, it’s about building endurance so he can maintain it.

Uribe connects off Kershaw

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Clayton Kershaw got through one of his least-favorite spring training rituals Saturday morning. He threw batting practice to Dodgers hitters. One of those hitters, Juan Uribe, swung at a hanging slider and sent it over the left-center field fence to rattle around among the rocks. “I’m going to have to hear about Uribe hitting a homer off me all season, so I’m just glad I gave him some confidence for the year,” Kershaw joked.

Dodgers set spring rotation

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Los Angeles Dodgers open their Cactus League schedule Wednesday against the Chicago White Sox at Camelback Ranch. Erik Bedard, who is trying to revive his career in camp on a minor-league deal, will be the starting pitcher. Clayton Kershaw will start Thursday, also against the White Sox. Bedard, 36, hasn’t made as many as 30 starts in a season since 2006. The lefty pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays last year, but the Rays released him after a series of bad starts in August.

Clayton Kershaw, who finished a morning workout across town in Los Angeles Dodgers camp, arrived at about 1:45 p.m. and was on site for about five hours, then went to meet his wife Ellen and newborn daughter, Cali Ann, who flew in that evening from Dallas.

Kershaw not thrilled with first bullpen of 2015

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Clayton Kershaw is notoriously tough on himself, even in spring training, so take the following self-assessment with a grain of salt. After getting on a dirt mound for the first time since last October -- the high-school field where Kershaw works out in Dallas has an artificial surface -- and throwing his first bullpen session of the spring, Kershaw declared it a disappointment. “I feel good, but it was a pretty bad bullpen,” Kershaw said.
