Some early-morning notes from the Dodgers’ camp:

Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of the spring Friday. The session was originally scheduled for Wednesday but pushed back because of mild back stiffness Kershaw was experiencing. Kershaw is expected to start his first exhibition game March 9.

Mike MacDougal’s bullpen session Thursday was pushed back. MacDougal felt something in his back when fielding a groundball Wednesday during a drill.


Right-hander Jose Ascanio failed a physical and left the Dodgers’ camp.
