Clayton Kershaw, given Thursday off to reset, is back at Dodgers camp today, but will stay away from throwing for at least the next couple day. Dave Roberts said Kershaw "didn't feel right" with his Monday live BP session and Wednesday bullpen, but emphasized that Kershaw's back is not an issue and said he is "not alarmed."
