Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that he remains on schedule to begin his minor league rehab assignment today.

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.
