MLB Rumors: Matt Kemp says he is 100 percent ready to return

Los Angeles Dodgers’ center fielder Matt Kemp is eligible to return to the team from the disabled list on Friday, April 4th. If Kemp has his way, he will be back that day and not a moment later.

According to Scott Miller.

Perhaps no player stands to have such a huge impact one way or another on their team’s season than Kemp. The Dodgers are already a favorite to reach the playoffs and possibly the World Series thanks to their loaded rotation. If Kemp joins a lineup that already boasts Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez, and Yasiel Puig and looks anything like his old self, it probably vaults the Dodgers up to World Series favorites.

That said, there will still be hurdles for Kemp given the severity of his injuries. No matter how much he claims to be 100 percent, it will take some game action coming off shoulder and ankle operations to prove he is fully healthy and ready to make an impact.
