Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp missed his second straight game on Sunday because of a frayed shoulder labrum, but he's hoping he can return to action on Tuesday. "He played catch, but didn't hit today," trainer Sue Falsone said Sunday, according to MLB.com. "Mostly just rest, and we'll let the off-day work for us." Kemp, who received a cortisone shot Saturday, was injured when he ran into the outfield fence at Coors Field in Denver on Aug. 28. He missed the final two games of the weekend series against the Giants. Asked whether he'll play Tuesday, Kemp said, "I hope so. That's the plan. I pray to God I can. With the off-day tomorrow, I'm sure that will help."
