LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw resumed baseball activities Sunday with a game of catch as he continued his attempt to return to the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season.

“Clayton played catch today, first day. I haven’t heard how he came out of it, but today was that first day,” Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts said. “I’m sure there was some soreness, but it was good to see him with a baseball in his hand.”

Sidelined since his last start on June 26, Kershaw (mild herniated disc) was moved to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday and is not eligible to return until Aug. 27.

“I think that all along we’ve expected, and a little bit of it is being hopeful, for him to make starts for us this year in September,” said Roberts.

The next step for Kershaw will be another session of catch “just a little further out,” with team doctors hoping to “just continue to get his intensity up and stretch him out,” Roberts said.

ATHLETICS: Oakland placed right-hander Sonny Gray on the disabled list because of a strained right forearm, a day after he was pulled from his latest start.

It’s Gray’s second stint on the DL this season. He strained his right trapezius muscle and was out from May 21-June 4.

Gray allowed two runs in five innings against the Chicago Cubs on Saturday before leaving the game.

Nationals: Right fielder Bryce Harper didn’t play in Washington’s 1-0 win over San Francisco, a day after leaving a game because of neck stiffness.

METS: Shortstop Jose Reyes (left oblique strain) is scheduled to play in a simulated game Monday in Florida.

RANGERS: Outfielder Carlos Beltran was out of the lineup after leaving Saturday’s game because of a left quad contusion.

He pinch-hit in the 10th and flied out to leave the bases loaded in the Rangers’ 5-3 loss to Houston.

Astros: Outfielder Colby Rasmus was put on the 15-day disabled list because of a cyst in his right ear.
