Matt Kemp still doesn’t have a timetable

There’s a reason the Dodgers didn’t trade one of their four outfielders this winter. They don’t know when they’ll actually have four healthy outfielders. To wit: yesterday Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he still doesn’t have a timetable for Matt Kemp in his return from ankle surgery.

“I wish I could give you a timetable but I don’t know it,” Mattingly said. “I read the reports of him doing a little bit more, a higher speed on the ultra-g (treadmill). But as far as getting out here and running, what’s the date? I don’t have that. That’s kind of depending on what the doctors say.”
Kemp has had multiple MRIs, but his status is still unclear. At this point, it’s hard to see Kemp being ready for the opener.

    I drafted him for my Fantasy team last year. Thought I got a steal. I won’t make that mistake this year.

      Love the guy. He’s a class act. But it’s just like the big leagues. He doesn’t perform; he gets cut. I have a feeling he will still be there for a bargain in the free agents after we finish the draft. We’re a tough, mean group.

        I wonder what a predominately Oklahoma team would get you…

      Ever since MK signed for the $100+ million he became a BUM! I bet if he was a free agent he would be healthy & ready to put up career numbers, MLB should only give out 1 yr contracts.

    It’s hard to be rehabbing when you spend your time in the club!

    This guy was so healthy and productive before Biogenesis closed.

    Could he be on the same path that Grady Sizemore took?
