Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN
Tommy Kahnle (elbow) tossed a scoreless inning Thursday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Oklahoma City. Kahnle has allowed one run over 1 2/3 innings across a pair of relief appearances since moving his rehab assignment to the Triple-A level earlier this week. The 32-year-old veteran righty is working his way back from Tommy John elbow reconstructive surgery and appears to be close to rejoining the Dodgers' bullpen at some point in the near future.
San Diego Padres DFS Spin
Mike Clevinger (knee) will make another minor league rehab start on Tuesday at Triple-A El Paso. The right-hander went three innings in his last start at Triple-A on Tuesday, and the Padres want to get him stretched out to five innings before rejoining the big league rotation. That means at least one -- and probably two -- additional rehab starts before he's ready to return. Look for MacKenzie Gore to continue to hold down the fort in the Padres rotation for the time being.
