The good news about Clayton Kershaw's foot injury is that it doesn't affect his pitching mechanics.

The bad news is the plantar fasciitis he's developed on his left foot likely won't go away anytime soon.

That's according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, who said the reigning Cy Young award winner has modified his workouts to avoid exacerbating the injury, but that there's not much else he can do.

"(Plantar fasciitis) doesn't just go away, so it's something that he has to stay on top of, but he's going to keep feeling it," Mattingly said.
