Matt Kemp injury: Dodgers OF shut down indefinitely with hamstring tightness
Kemp has dealt with injuries all season long and has played in just 11 of the Dodgers' last 88 games. The 28-year-old outfielder has not appeared in the big leagues since July 21 after spraining his left ankle. Kemp also missed 24 games in May and June after straining his right hamstring, as True Blue LA notes.
Fortunately for the Dodgers and manager Don Mattingly, the club has no shortage of capable outfielders on the roster. Andre Ethier has done a solid job handling center field in Kemp's absence, while Carl Crawford and rookie sensation Yasiel Puig can cover a lot of ground in the corner positions.
