From Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times comes word that the Dodgers have placed outfielder Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list (for the third time this season) because of a sprained left ankle.

Kemp suffered the injury Sunday on an awkward slide into home plate. It was his first game since returning from a shoulder strain, and he also missed time earlier this year with a right hamstring injury.

Kemp, 28, has hit .263/.319/.382 with five homers and 69 strikeouts in 251 plate appearances this season and he’s appeared in just 62 of a possible 100 games so far. He is making $21 million this year and is owed another $128 million through 2019.

Ted Lilly was activated in a corresponding roster move and will pitch out of the Dodgers’ bullpen.

    Not surprising… What a diva

      Yes, what divas do is injure themselves. What?

        Yep, saw a diva sing real loud and stuff, just plain blew up into a million pieces… Just like that bird on Shrek. Damnedest thing I ever saw…
        Divas – livin’ on the edge…

        historio,
        I don’t often come to HBT in the evenings – is it normal for it to get overrun by the overflow from PBT and PFT? Sheesh…

        I think the night and weekend crews are often – how shall we say – the lesser literati. It’s really awful on holidays when some are home to drink & surf the net all day. But, I’d say we’re getting an uptick of PFT types the last few days due to the steroids stories generally. The day crowd restores your faith in humanity.

        Very true…
        In the words of the immortal philosoper Shag-gy – “Zoinks!”

    He’s baseball’s answer to Andrew Bynum

      Nah, Rafael Furcal is a better comparison. Raffy’s annual injury when he was in LA (and he has continued that tradition in St. Louis) was a high time for fun and excitement, since you could never predict what weird injury would cause him to miss 2 months.

    he’s a douchebag. Needs to shut his fat f****** mouth!!!

    • lanflfan - Jul 25, 2013 at 4:19 PM

      Please explain why you feel Kemp is a douche.

      Because he is one of the billions that have called out Lyin Fraud for his PED use? Because he one dated Rihanna?
      Because he makes millions?
      Because he lives and works in Los Angeles?
      Because he is actually good at baseball (when he is not acquiring stupid injuries) while you just browse baseball websites?

      • muskyhunter2542 - Jul 26, 2013 at 9:45 AM

        Ha your funny!!! LA the Smog capitol if the world. And he dated Rihanna whom I have seen naked probably more then he has. Come on man…

        While the Los Angeles Basin (encompassing a very large area) may be the smog capital of the US, it pales in comparison to other cites around the world. Mexico City is usually crowned the worst in the world, but they have been improving over the last few years. Multiple cities in Iran (including Tehran), Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Greece and Egypt and have significantly worse air than Los Angeles (per the World Health Organization).

        As for seeing Rihanna naked, it’s your business where you surf on the Internet. I hope you have good anti-virus protection.

        And you still did not answer my question: why do you feel Matt Kemp is a
        douche?
