LOS ANGELES — Pitcher Clayton Kershaw will head to the Dodgers’ Camelback Ranch facility in Arizona while the team flies to Atlanta to kick off an East Coast trip. Kershaw, on the 10-day disabled list with a right lower back strain, played catch for the third straight day Sunday.

“It was more the back,” Roberts said, “where you’re flying cross country and sitting, versus an hour flight (from Los Angeles to Phoenix). To get him on a plane to New York didn’t make sense.”

Brandon McCarthy threw off the bullpen mound at Dodger Stadium as he continues his recovery from a finger blister. Roberts said that another bullpen session would follow, and the team has not determined whether or not a minor league rehabilitation assignment would follow that.

McCarthy last pitched July 20. He’s attempting to build up a callous on the finger before he returns.

Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier faced live pitching Sunday afternoon. Ethier also stood in with a bat during Brock Stewart’s bullpen session. For Ethier, who hasn’t played this season because of a herniated disc in his back, it was his first chance to hit live pitching since spring training.

For Gonzalez, it was a last look before the veteran first baseman begins a minor league rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
