SAN FRANCISCO -- Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, currently on the disabled list, came out of his bullpen session Tuesday well enough to play catch from 100 feet Wednesday and flip breaking balls on flat ground.

Manager Don Mattingly said Kershaw will throw another bullpen session Thursday as he continues his recovery from a strained teres major muscle in his upper back.

"He's moving forward and feeling better about it," Mattingly said.

Mattingly, however, said there still is no timetable on Kershaw's return and the medical department is still calling the shots.

"Stan [Conte, athletic trainer] decides how far and how fast," Mattingly said. "It's not in Clayton's hands."
