The club with baseball’s best record just got a little strong: the Dodgers activated Matt Kemp from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday.
Kemp, the NL MVP runner-up in 2011, was off to a torrid start this season before suffering a strained left hamstring. Fortunately, he missed the minimum 15 days, and he’ll now have a chance to get back to work on his incredible .359/.446/.727 line. He’s homered 12 times in 117 at-bats this season.
Going back to Triple-A to make room for Kemp on the roster is 24-year-old Jerry Sands. Given five starts against lefties during Kemp’s absence, he went 4-for-20 with two doubles and an 8/1 K/BB ratio.
