GLENDALE, Ariz. — Clayton Kershaw felt more soreness in his left shoulder playing catch Monday, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says the three-time Cy Young Award winner “didn’t feel so great.”
The ace left-hander was shut down late last week with discomfort in the shoulder, and it didn’t feel better when he tested it Monday.

“Right now I think it is safe to say, he didn’t feel great coming out of it, so where that has us, we don’t know. But I know, probably, we’ll take a step back until he starts feeling better.” — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts
“Where he is right now, it might be another day or two until he picks it up again,” Roberts said. “So, right now I think it is safe to say, he didn’t feel great coming out of it, so where that has us, we don’t know. But I know, probably, we’ll take a step back until he starts feeling better.”
Kershaw was not scheduled for an MRI when Roberts spoke to reporters, but the manager said he would be in touch with the medical staff to determine a course of action Monday evening.
The 30-year-old Kershaw signed a $93 million, three-year extension on Nov. 3. The seven-time All-Star has been slowed by injuries the past two seasons, including a lower back strain that sidelined him for five weeks in 2017, biceps tendinitis in May 2018 and a lower back strain in June 2018.
During the recent offseason, Kershaw worked with Dodgers’ strength and conditioning coach Brandon McDaniel and felt physically fit when he reported to camp two weeks ago.
