Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp had just two hits and struck out six times during his three-game rehab stint with Triple-A Albuquerque. But that apparently doesn’t bother the Los Angeles decision-makers.
According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Kemp has been activated from the disabled list and is in the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the rival Giants. He’ll bat fifth and start in center. Yasiel Puig is playing left field and Andre Ethier is in right.
Kemp wound up missing a little over three weeks because of a right hamstring strain. He has batted just .251/.305/.335 with two home runs and 17 RBI in 51 games this season for the Dodgers, who are in last place in the NL West with a 33-42 record.
