LOS ANGELES — Dodgers starting pitcher Scott Kazmir has showed progress but still no timetable has been set for his return, according to J.P. Hoornstra of The Daily News. Kazmir is still being bothered by a lingering hip injury he suffered during spring training and has yet to make a major league start this season.

Kazmir had his first rehab start on Monday at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, in which he went three innings, while allowing one run on four hits and issuing zero strikeouts. His results were neither exciting nor disappointing. On the bright side it is progress.

It is still uncertain when or if Kazmir will return this season. With the emergence of lefty Alex Wood, who is 9-0 and sporting a stellar 1.86 ERA, it makes Kazmir’s spot in the rotation a little hazy.

Kazmir is scheduled to have his second rehab on Sunday, according to Ken Gurnick. The expectation is for Kazmir to either complete four full innings or throw 60 pitches.
