Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt told reporters that Kershaw would throw approximately 60 pitches Saturday when the Triple-A Dodgers host the Omaha Storm Chasers, the Royals' Triple-A affiliate.
Kershaw pitched four innings in a simulated game in Pittsburgh on Monday.
The three-time Cy Young winner, rehabbing from a back issue, was scheduled to throw three innings, but when that was done he came back for a fourth.
After the outing, Kershaw told Spectrum SportsNet LA that he could pitch in a major league game tomorrow, but that the team knows the next step. He said he's healthy and ready.
The Dodgers' ace has been sidelined since July 24.
Right-hander Yu Darvish also threw a bullpen session Monday. He was recently placed on the disabled list with back tightness after pitching through discomfort in two straight starts.
