LOS ANGELES -- Clayton Kershaw wants to pitch again right away. John Wensink Jersey . He knows his doctors will have a more patient plan.The Los Angeles Dodgers three-time Cy Young winner received an epidural for lower back pain Thursday and was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a disc herniation the following day. He rejoined the ballclub on Saturday, already eager to find out when hell get back on the mound.I feel a little better now, Kershaw said when asked how his body responded to the epidural. I think its still pretty early to tell. It usually takes 3-to-5 days, but todays the third day. Im starting to get a little relief.Unbeaten in his 10 previous starts, Kershaw (11-2, 1.79) was tagged for four runs and nine hits over six innings in a 4-3 loss to the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday.I definitely didnt do it on one pitch or anything like that, he said. I think it was probably just a progression.In the game Sunday I felt fine, and then on Monday it started getting a little bit worse. It was probably time at that point to get it checked out.Kershaw returned to Los Angeles from Milwaukee on Wednesday for an examination with Dr. Robert Watkins. His follow-up exam was scheduled for Saturday night, but he wasnt thrilled with the wait.Yeah, I have a plan, but I havent seen Dr. Watkins for a follow-up, Kershaw said. Ill see him around gametime (Saturday), and talk about a process, a program, and what he thinks, and go from there.Until Monday, Kershaw had chalked up his lower back stiffness to the rigors of playing major league baseball.It didnt really affect me pitching, he said. It was just kind of a little bit of a grind at times to get to that point, but once the game started it didnt really affect me pitching.When asked how long his back has been a bother, Kershaw said: Its tough to say. I feel like if you ask anybody in the clubhouse and theyll say, `Oh, my lower back is a little stiff today. So I think everybody goes through that, and I didnt think mine was any different.Kershaw said the pain was not sharp but difficult to describe, saying, Its just in my back. No pain down my legs or anything like that, which is a good sign.Kershaws spent almost six weeks on the disabled list to start the 2014 season, an experience hes not eager to go through again.Im going to be very impatient, he said. Im going to try and pitch tomorrow.The DL sucks. Theres no getting around it. Its awful. ... You just feel like, whether you do or not, you just feel like youre letting the team down by not pitching. Its just the way it is. Youve just got to get through it. Nail Yakupov Jersey . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh.
