As first reported by beat writer Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp has officially been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is back in LA’s starting lineup on Sunday afternoon against the Nationals. It’ll be his first appearance in an MLB game since July 5.

Kemp wound up missing a little over two weeks due to painful irritation of the AC joint in his left shoulder.

The 28-year-old also spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with a right hamstring strain. He’s batting just .254/.309/.357 with four home runs and nine stolen bases through his first 61 games played this year.

Kemp had 23 homers and nine steals in 106 games last summer and 39 homers and 40 steals in 2011.

    Had a great game where he went 3-4 w/ a HR & 3 RBI but after walking in his last at-bat, got caught loafing home on what should have been a routine third out. The 1st baseman realized he couldn’t get to the bag in time to get Crawford out so he throws home for the force b/c Kemp is loafing. Kemp then speeds up and tries to beat the throw but is called out while jamming his heel into the plate. He’ll be back on the DL tomorrow most likely.
