From MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick comes word that center fielder Matt Kemp and shortstop Hanley Ramirez are back in the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks.

This will be Kemp’s first start since he suffered a severe left ankle sprain on July 21. He has appeared in only 63 games this season and has registered a wretched .262/.317/.380 slash line, but the Dodgers are hoping he’ll be able to contribute something positive down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Hanley had been out since last Thursday because of an irritated nerve in his lower back. The 29-year-old is batting .342/.390/.634 with 18 home runs and 53 RBI in 79 games played this season for National League West-leading Los Angeles.

    Got a feeling that before the end of the season one of these guys is going to get hurt again. Probably Kemp. Dude’s been body slammed by the injury bug lately.

    They are a better team when Kemp is on the DL.
