MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed center fielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a sprained left ankle. It was the third time Kemp has been on the disabled list this season.
As reported by Ken Gurnick of MLB.com,
" Kemp sprained his left ankle on an awkward slide into home on Sunday
against the Nationals. The swelling and discomfort showed little
improvement over the past three days, leaving the club uncertain how
long Kemp will be sidelined."
"On Sunday, only hours after Kemp was activated after a DL stint because
of shoulder pain, Mattingly guessed that the ankle injury wasn't severe
enough to put Kemp back on the disabled list."
Kemp said he was unprepared for a plate at the plate when he jogged home on a ground ball hit by Carl Crawford.
So far this season, Kemp has missed 38 of the Dodgers' first 99 games. Kemp has 156 home runs and a .293 average in 955 career games. This season, he is batting .263 with 5 home runs and 27 runs batted in.
BEST OF MAXIM
To say Matt Kemp is having a horrific statement would be a massive understatement. The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder has spent the better part of the season on the disabled list and the few times he’s played, he has been pretty brutal.
Kemp made his return to the surging Dodgers on Sunday, then proceeded to injure his ankle in that very game, which has led to this.
The suspended and disgraced Ryan Braun was, of course, the 2011 National League MVP. In the balloting, he won a tight race over Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp (I join my colleague Matt Snyder in thinking that Kemp should've won in the first place), and in the wake of Braun's temporary banishment, Kemp's teammate Skip Schumaker called for the award to be handed over to Kemp...

Ryan Braun has been lying to our faces for the past 2+ years. We now know that he is a cheat who should pack up that MVP award and ship it to its rightful owner, Matt Kemp. Personally, I don’t hate on any athlete who gets caught cheating, mans up, and comes clean. But liars? People who look directly into the camera and proclaim their innocence time and...
