Dodgers fans will get their first look at Clayton Kershaw in the Cactus League action this week. Dave Roberts confined that the southpaw did get out of his bullpen session clean, and will be ready to start Friday against the Royals.
Roberts confirmed that Kershaw would be going 2 innings on Friday. That game is at Surprise Stadium with first pitch coming at 12:05 p.m local time. The Dodgers will also follow up Kershaw with Trevor Bauer’s second appearance of the Spring on Saturday, also confirmed by Dave.
Roberts also said that David Price is on schedule despite not having any Spring appearances scheduled. He threw a live batting practice on Wednesday and is expected to throw a bullpen in the coming days. The Dodgers do not have a date for him to get into games.
