Matt Kemp had been left out of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup for the past five games as he seemingly lost his role as the team’s center fielder. Manager Don Mattingly informed Kemp he would no longer start on a daily basis in center and would begin taking work in left field.

Kemp has continued to express his desire to play and contribute to the Dodgers and his agent, Dave Stewart, proclaimed the outfielder as someone who is capable of playing every day. With Carl Crawford on the disabled list after spraining his ankle Tuesday night, Kemp returned to the lineup Wednesday night and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Dodgers’ 3-2 loss.
