Clayton Kershaw is unlikely to require back surgery for the herniated disk that sidelined him for more than two months during the season.

"Like all of our guys, we have exit physicals and conversations with trainers and doctors," Andrew Friedman said. "I'm sure that will take place, and I don't expect it to be anything that's newsworthy."

Kershaw returned in early September, but never publicly went into detail about his back injury.
