Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp played in a simulated game against injured starter Ted Lilly today, hitting two home runs. Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times says Kemp, recovering from irritation of the AC joint in his left shoulder, is on track to be activated tomorrow. After returning from the disabled list on June 25, Kemp only lasted a week and a half before needing another stint on the DL.

Kemp has posted a .666 OPS on the season in 246 trips to the plate. He is in the second year of an eight-year, $160 million contract extension.

    He’ll be back alright! Then we he struggles to hit he’ll get another “Injury” like always.

      Like always? From 2008-2011, Kemp played 155, 159, 162, and 161 games.

      I await your comeback filled with “facts” and stuff.

    I’m wondering if he’ll ever be the same since the shoulder injury.

      I do too, irishdodger. Reminds me of the troubles Scott Rolen had once he had shoulder surgery.

    He had a great game today before jamming his heel into home plate at the end of a blowout win. Had he not been loafing home on what he assumed would be the 3rd out he would have easily scored.
