Clayton Kershaw is on the right track in his recovery from the injury to his throwing shoulder and is set to work a bullpen session on Monday.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts shared this latest update on Sunday morning, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.



The lefty has already thrown off the mound a bit since being shut down for the better part of a week following a setback a couple weeks ago. He’s made steady recovery since that point, and this is obviously another positive step.

Roberts recently said it’s possible that Kershaw won’t be ready for Opening Day, but at this rate the ace is clearly aiming to make that start against the Arizona Diamondbacks on March 28.
