LOS ANGELES -- There was no change in Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw's status Thursday because he didn't do much over the past 24 hours.

"[Friday] he's allowed to play catch, so we'll see where he's at," manager Don Mattingly said. "He's really on hold."

Kershaw on Wednesday was scratched from starting Sunday night's domestic opener because of an inflamed teres major muscle, which stabilizes the upper arm near the upper back. The left-hander declined to comment before batting practice on Thursday, politely noting that it was time to go onto the field and stretch.
