LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw played catch for the second straight day Saturday, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers another positive sign that he’s closer to pitching again than they originally speculated.

The 10-minute session came after Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw’s activities would depend on how he felt after Friday night’s throwing session. How many days in a row will Kershaw be allowed to throw?

“That’s in the hands of the medical staff,” Roberts said. “He said he felt good today and they gave him the green light to go play catch.”

Kershaw left his start last Sunday because of lower back stiffness. The Dodgers originally put a four-to-six-week time frame on Kershaw’s return, but allowed him to resume throwing Friday after he reported no symptoms.
