Kershaw to toss two frames in camp game

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers abandoned plans to schedule a "B" game against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday for the benefit of Opening Day starter Clayton Kershaw and instead hope to give the lefty two innings in a camp game.

The outing will put Kershaw on schedule for a March 9 exhibition season debut. Kershaw is behind schedule because his opening bullpen session last week was pushed back two days due to mild back tightness.

"He feels better, but there's still a little twinge," manager Don Mattingly said of Kershaw, who had a 40-pitch bullpen session Sunday.
