Los Angeles Dodgers Matt Kemp Running, To Be Activated From DL Next Week?

Finally a bit of good news for Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Matt Kemp.

Kemp, who suffered what was originally reported as a “minor” hamstring strain has been on the disabled list for just shy of a month after suffering a setback two weeks ago. But finally feeling healthy, Kemp was spotted running the bases in San Diego where the Dodgers are facing the Padres this weekend and it’s expected that Kemp will go on a rehab assignment as early as this weekend.

Per Ken Gurnick:

Matt Kemp is running the bases, the final hurdle before going out on a Minor League rehab assignment.

After suffering the setback, the Dodgers had hoped to get Kemp into a rehab this weekend where he could have been activated for their series with the San Francisco Giants, but it appears Kemp will be just a few days behind and will be removed from the disabled list next weekend when the Dodgers welcome the Philadelphia Phillies.

It wont be a minute too soon for the Dodgers who currently sit 8.5 games out in the National League West, good for last place.
