Dodgers’ Ker­shaw keep­ing return date to him­self

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

SAN DIEGO — Clay­ton Ker­shaw has a tar­get in mind for when he ex­pects to pitch again for the Dodgers. But he’s keep­ing it to him­self.

“I do,” he said. “It just doesn’t make sense to share it. If I beat it, ‘Oh, you’re rush­ing back.’ And if I don’t, then it’s ‘Why not?’ “

Ker­shaw will be el­i­gi­ble to come off the DL when the Dodgers return from the all-star break. But Dodgers man­ager Dave Roberts has said he ex­pects his ace to “need some time af­ter that.”

Ker­shaw has been in San Diego the past two days, par­tic­i­pat­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties sur­round­ing the All-Star Game. He joined Tues­day’s “red car­pet pa­rade” through down­town and, af­ter ar­riv­ing at Petco Park, im­me­di­ately headed to the weight room to go through his re­hab work.

Dodgers soft tis­sue spe­cial­ist Yo­suke Naka­jima was with him to su­per­vise.
