Dodgers News: Matt Kemp To Continue Rehab At Camelback Ranch

Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp didn’t have the best experience with Class A Rancho Cucamonga as he went hitless in five games and struck out seven times.

Kemp has been sidelined due to a severely sprained ankle in mid-July as this was his third significant injury that caused him to miss a significant portion of the season.

With Rancho Cucamonga advancing to the playoffs, there was some thought that Kemp would stay there, but it sounds like he’s headed to Arizona according to Tony Jackson of Dodgerscribe.com:

While it’s been concerning for Dodger fans that Kemp hasn’t had a hit during his rehab assignment, Don Mattingly and hitting coach Mark McGwire don’t seem to be too worried.

In 62 games this season, Kemp is hitting .263 with five home runs and 27 RBIs and when he returns, Mattingly will have a tough decision as to who to sit on a daily basis. With 25 games left to go, the Dodgers have a 12.5 game lead and have seen their magic number drop to 14, so it’s wise to not rush Kemp back.

Even though it was speculated that Kemp might get activated, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reported the Dodgers plan for him:

Without him in the lineup, the Dodgers have gone on a historic run, but it’s safe to say that his addition to the team will help them reach their ultimate goal.
