There was a time this season when the Los Angeles Dodgers were averaging more than one error per game. While that average has since decreased, the Dodgers remain hampered by their own mistakes.

Matt Kemp is tied for third on the team with four errors, a total that has him first among center fielders in MLB. Following Thursday’s loss to the New York Mets, manager Don Mattingly and Kemp discussed the errors with each acknowledging the need to improve.

Kemp was subsequently left out of Friday’s lineup and Mattingly stated center field is a position the team continues to monitor and again reiterated the necessity to receive better play. Mattingly openly questioned Kemp’s speed, which the center fielder down played, but did admit to needing to get better reads on balls hit his way.
