Matt Kemp re-injured his hamstring during his rehab stint and his return timetable has been pushed back, with some reporting that he’s out indefinitely.
The planned comeback of Matt Kemp has taken a turn for the worse, as the Dodgers center fielder felt tightness in his right hamstring, the team announced Friday. While the Dodgers announced Kemp’s rehab would be slowed down, manager Don Mattingly said Kemp would be shut down “indefinitely,” per Dodger Talk co-host David Vassesgh.
Kemp has been sidelined since July 21 with a sprained left ankle, but also missed 24 games on a separate disabled list stint in May and June with a right hamstring strain.
“I’m not ready to concede anything, but at some point we run out of time,” manager Don Mattingly told reporters before Friday’s game against the Reds in Cincinnati, per Vassegh.
The Dodgers have had outfielders Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Kemp healthy and active for a total of two games and 10 innings this season.

When the Dodgers traded for Ricky Nolasco, I wasn't particularly a fan of the move. They didn't give up a lot of value and talent for him, but I just didn't see the fit.
I'm happy to say I was completely wrong (not the first time, certainly not the last).

I recently landed one of the most aesthetically-pleasing cards I own. From 2013 Bowman Platinum, it's a Cutting Edge Stars bat slice from The Bison, #'d 04/50.My newest Mattycakes was had via eBay for just $8.14 delivered, a surprisingly low sum. I really dig the die-cut design and the fact that Topps went with a piece of bat rather than a simple jersey swatch.
