Kershaw needs more dental work, is OK for opener
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Kershaw had one tooth extracted and another one repaired.
Kershaw was struck by a soft liner off the bat off Oakland's Andy Parrino on Friday. The NL MVP and Cy Young Award fell in front of the mound, was examined by a trainer, threw a warmup pitch and stayed in the game.
Kershaw had dental work done Friday night.
The NL West champion Dodgers start the regular season on April 6 when they host San Diego.
