GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw has not resumed throwing since he stopped Monday while feeling shoulder discomfort.

Kershaw, who felt discomfort while playing catch, told manager Dave Roberts that his shoulder feels better.

Roberts said Friday that shortstop Corey Seager, coming off elbow and hip surgery, played in an intrasquad game on Friday and threw from 150 feet. Roberts said Seager is on track to play in the opener on March 28.

Roberts says 24-year-old right-hander Walker Buehler will have a couple of bullpen sessions, then pitch batting practice before appearing in an exhibition game. Buehler, who pitched a career-high 161 innings last year, including the postseason, is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
