Dodgers play it safe with Clayton Kershaw's back stiffness

February 22, 2012 |  6:35 pm

Clayton Kershaw pushed back his first bullpen session of the spring Wednesday as a precaution because of  mild stiffness in his back.

The reigning National League Cy Young winner first felt discomfort a few days earlier, but isn't expected to undergo any exams.

Kershaw's first start in the exhibition is scheduled for March 9.
