LA Times Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp may not return from a sprained left ankle until September, reports MLB.com. “By the time we have the four all ready to play, we’ll be a few weeks from the end [of the season],” general manager Ned Colletti said of Kemp joining outfielders Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier and Yasiel Puig on the active roster. Since injuring his ankle during an awkward slide at the plate July 21 against the Nationals, Kemp has only been able to hit off a tee and play catch. “We were hoping this was going to be a simple ankle sprain, but it’s a lot more serious than that,” Mattingly said. “He’s been able to do some things, but is having soreness with that. We’re still not where we need to be.” Kemp has been on the disabled list three times this season. Former All-Star closer for the San Francisco Giants, Brian Wilson, reported to the  Dodgers’ Spring Training facility at Camelback Ranch-Glendale in Arizona.  He will pitch to hitters on Thursday. “He’s going to earn whatever he gets,” Mattingly said. “We want to put him in a position to have success. Kenley [Jansen] is going to get the ball in the ninth and everyone else is going to get the ball to him.” Wilson had 48 saves and a 1.81 ERA with the Giants in 2010, when he closed out the World Series.
