DENVER Matt Kemp is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list this week, as he is scheduled to continue his rehabilitation at the Dodgers spring-training complex in Arizona.
Kemp will play in simulated games, which will allow him to take 10 to 12 at-bats per day.
In a four-day period, you can get 40-something at-bats, Manager Don Mattingly said. Thats a good way to get his timing.
Kemp opted to go to Arizona instead of remaining with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga for the California League playoffs. Kemp was 0 for 18 in a rehabilitation assignment with Rancho Cucamonga.
Mattingly didnt know how long Kemp would remain in Arizona, but said he wouldnt be activated until the outfielder felt ready to compete at the major league level.
As for Kemps left ankle, Mattingly reported no problems.
The ankle seems to be holding up fine, Mattingly said.

I have no doubt that when Matt Kemp comes back healthy - and granted, that may not be until 2014 - he'll be a great offensive force and a plus on the bases once again. Until then, I'll continue to take advantage of others doubting him and the corresponding drop in prices on his cardboard. My latest addition is one I've been after for quite some time.From 2012 Topps this...

'Like the beginning of Spring Training' is how Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly described Matt Kemp's condition to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick yesterday. Kemp has played in less than half of the Dodgers' games this season after struggling with a litany of injuries, the latest being a left ankle sprain sustained in July. With Kemp now moving his rehab to the...
Yasiel Puig is a bit of a diva. Heck, if you spent the majority of your life on a tiny communist island then to become a millionaire before the age of 25 you’d be one too.
But with that said, what in the blue hell is a music video entrance? Players are known to pick music to step up to bat to, usually a five to ten second sample of a song to get them in the zone.

During today's Dodgers game, outfielder Yasiel Puig awkwardly slid into first base and had to leave the game with a mild strain of his right knee. It turns out the injury isn't too serious, but it will cause him to miss some time.

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Nick Punto grabbed the hanger. He stuffed the shirts onto a nearby chair and moved the rest of the gear in the locker around. A few minutes later reliever J.P. Howell walked over and began to put his clothes up.
Out popped Skip Schumaker who was crouched behind the uniform gear like a ninja. Howell's reaction left teammates howling.
Yasiel Puig probably could have played last night in the Los Angeles Dodgers' win over the Colorado Rockies. However, he is not quite 100 percent. Rather than rush him back, the Dodgers gave him the night off and they will re-evaluate today. With a comfortable lead in the division race, Los Angeles has the luxury of trying to get their players as healthy as possible.
The Dodgers outfielder has played in 80 of 82 games since joining the Dodgers including 76 starts.
Yasiel Puig was removed from Monday's game against the Rockies in the sixth inning after the Dodgers outfielder appeared to have some sort of an issue with his knee. The Dodgers announced that Puig left the game with a mild right knee strain.

With the regular season ending for all affiliates aside from Ogden, Monday’s games are included in this week’s recap.
Also of note is that the Dodgers have shut down Julio Urias, who hit his strict innings limit, even though Great Lakes made the playoffs.
It’s a smart move, of course.

Jorge De La Rosa looked at his thumb and shook his head. It hurts. It has since June 17 when he violently spun a curveball in Toronto then had the bat ricochet off it while bunting. The pain has traveled with him through two countries eight states and 16 games.

DENVER (AP) -- Edinson Volquez lost to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night for the fifth time this season. But in his first start for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Volquez saw progress in the 7-5 loss as he tried to implement some recommendations from new pitching coach Rick Honeycutt.
