    In news that is perhaps even more encouraging for Dodgers fans, Clayton Kershaw pitched a bullpen session today and reported that he felt “100 percent” (via Plunkett on Twitter). Kershaw, of course, was in the midst of an historically dominant season (with a 1.79 ERA, 10.8 K/9 and an amazing 0.7 BB/9 in 121 innings) before he came down with a herniated disc and headed to the DL in late June. Unlike with Hill, the timeline of Kershaw’s return remains unclear, and he probably still has significant work to do before he’s ready to start a big-league game. If in fact he’s able to pitch a successful bullpen right now, though, it seems reasonable to hope he can contribute by the end of the season and in the playoffs.

    We need him now. The rotation is completely imploding. When can he realistically pitch again? The last 3 weeks won't work. We need him now.

    I called September, maybe even mid Sept.

    Nothing I've read makes me think otherwise.

    But yes, we desperately need him now.

    I like the timing of that except of course for the timing

    All in all he's had two great BP sessions and another is set for this weekend
    Then a rehab start in OKC, where he'll show Puig what it takes to leave the buses and return to airplane travel.

    Let Puig rattle the buses awhile longer to teach him what he's missing
