Kemp will begin rehabbing in a little over a week, and is
expected to be full-go for the start of the 2013 season. The 28-year-old hit
.303/.367/.538 with 22 doubles and 23 home runs over 403 at-bats this season.

While Kemp’s shoulder required surgery, the Dodgers announced this week that left-hander Clayton Kershaw won’t need to go under the
knife for his hip ailment. If Kershaw would have undergone the procedure, he
would have likely missed the first month of the 2013 regular season.

Kershaw led the majors in ERA and WHIP this year, finishing
second in the National League to only New York Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey in
innings-pitched and strikeouts. Over 33 starts spanning 227 2/3 innings the
24-year-old maintained an ERA and WHIP of 2.53 and 1.023 with 229 strikeouts.
