LOS ANGELES (AP) -- All-Star center fielder Matt Kemp has been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday after missing 13 games because of a left hamstring strain.
Kemp, the runner-up to Milwaukee's Ryan Braun in last year's NL MVP voting, was leading the league with 12 home runs when he aggravated his troublesome hamstring running out a grounder on May 13 against Colorado -- ending his consecutive game streak at 399. He entered Tuesday batting .359 in 34 games with 28 RBIs, and was the first NL player to be named player of the week during the first two weeks of a season.
He played in two rehab games with Triple-A Albuquerque, going 5 for 7 with two homers.
Outfielder Jerry Sands was optioned to Triple-A.

The Los Angeles Dodgers
have been doing just fine, thank you very much, without MVP candidate
Matt Kemp. So far. The Milwaukee Brewers, on the other hand,
apparently miss Prince Fielder very much.
So it's two teams headed
in opposite directions at the moment and with very
tight MLB odds as LA hosts Milwaukee for a four-game series...
