"He's moving forward and feeling better about it," Mattingly said.

Mattingly, however, said there still is no timetable on Kershaw's return and the medical department is still calling the shots.

"Stan [Conte, athletic trainer] decides how far and how fast," Mattingly said. "It's not in Clayton's hands."
