Matt Kemp said he remains on schedule to begin his minor league rehabilitation assignment tomorrow.— Dylan Hernandez (@dylanohernandez) July 2, 2012
Kemp has been sidelined since May 30 due to a hamstring injury. He is slated to begin his rehab assignment with the Dodgers’ High-A affiliate.
Kemp hit the Dodgers’ disabled list in the middle of May after initially injuring his hamstring. After being activated from the DL, the 27-year-old played in only two games before aggravating the strain and sustaining a new one.
The Dodgers owned an overall record of 32-18 when Kemp last appeared in a game for them, with a comfortable lead in the National League West. Now, just over a month later, LA has lost eight of their last 10 games, dropping the club to an overall record of 44-37 and 1 ½ games behind the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants.
On the season, Kemp has hit at a clip of .355/.444/.719 with 12 home runs, 30 runs scored and 28 RBIs.
Do you expect the Dodgers to rebound from their current slide?
