Kershaw recovering from flu, eyes home opener
SAN DIEGO -- With Clayton Kershaw improved but not 100 percent recovered from the flu that cut short his Opening Day start after three innings, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he's expecting Kershaw to make his next start in Tuesday's home opener against Pittsburgh.

"I'm thinking about him starting the game, that's the way I look at it," Mattingly said. "We'll have to pay attention to him strengthwise, how long he goes."

Mattingly said he isn't convinced Kershaw has eaten enough solid foods to be fully recovered.

"He's still not eating the way he'd like to," he said. "I'd like to see him get more calories. He's definitely better, he's expecting to go, but we'll pay attention to him. He's been eating bland foods. Haven't seen him at any Mexican grills yet."
