The Los Angeles Dodgers made a couple roster moves today as they have placed Matt Kemp on the disabled list and activated Ted Lilly.
Kemp suffered an ankle injury on Sunday in a 9-2 win over the Washington Nationals. The injury took place after Kemp made an awkward slide into home plate. It was his first game back after he injured his shoulder earlier this month against the San Francisco Giants.
So you would have to imagine how frustrated the Dodgers center fielder is. He is likely to return when he is first eligible.
In the 2nd move the Dodgers made, they have activated veteran left handed pitcher Ted Lilly. This was Lilly’s 3rd stint on this disabled list this season and has asked the Dodgers before to try him as a reliever.
Lilly, 37 years old hasn’t made a relief appearance since the 2003 season. He has started in 5 games this season, completing 23 innings of work, giving up 27 hits, 13 earned runs, 4 home runs, 10 walked batters and 18 strike outs with a record of 0-2 and an ERA of 5.09.
