Matt Kemp injury: Dodgers OF hurts shoulder, leaves game
Dodgers star center fielder Matt Kemp exited the team's game on Friday against the division-rival Giants in the third inning with what appeared to be an injury to his left shoulder.
Kemp grabbed his shoulder in pain during his at-bat in the second inning with the count at 1-2. After getting examined by trainers, Kemp returned to the box but did not swing the bat again, taking three straight balls for a walk. He returned to the field for the bottom of the second, but did not need to make any plays on defense.
Kemp was scheduled to bat in the third inning but was replaced by Carl Crawford, who did not start the game after being activated from the disabled list earlier on Friday.
