Matt Kemp's regular season may not be over after all.  The Los Angeles Dodgers' outfielder has been battling a sprained ankle and was thought to be out for the rest of the regular season.  However, he may be able to return to the lineup for the team's final two weeks of the season. According to Austin Laymance of MLB.com, manager Don Mattingly is optimistic about Kemp's progress now.  He thinks there is a chance that Kemp could return for the final 10-12 games of the season.  After struggling with his recovery, it seems Kemp is finally making progress. "I'm starting to feel that way, yeah," Mattingly said Tuesday afternoon. "I think everybody is pretty positive that he's on a pretty good track." Kemp has battled injuries all throughout the year.  He did so last season as well, but he will play in less games this season than even last.  However, Kemp has still been able to find his swing at times.  He's having a down year, but he is still hitting .263/.319/.382. With the Dodgers on the verge of clinching the NL West, they do not need to rush Kemp back.  However, they would like to get him some action before the team heads into the playoffs.  If Kemp can get a few games in before then, he should be able to shake the rust off.
