KEMP UNDERGOING EXAMINATION BY SHOULDER AILMENT
Tue, 11 Sep 2012 06:54 AM EDT

L. A Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp received a cortisone injection in his inflamed left shoulder and hopes he’ll return quickly.

The Dodgers said before Saturday’s win at San Francisco that Kemp would miss at least the final 2 games key series because of his troublesome left shoulder.

”I hope it’s only a 2-day thing and I’m back out there the 3rd day,” he said. ”I wish this wasn’t going on at the moment but injuries are a part of the game. They’ve definitely been part of my game this whole year. I don’t say it’s something I’ve gotten used to, just something that I have had to handle. Try to figure out things.”

Kemp underwent an MRI exam using dye contrasting to give doctors a better notion of where he’s hurt. There was some fraying of the labrum but nothing significant in terms of structural damage, athletic coach Sue Falsone said.

His shoulder is still disturbing him from a crash into the outfield wall August 28 at Coors Field. The crash could have irritated the labrum.

Kemp did need some sedation to stay within the claustrophobic MRI tube for a prolonged period after going in head 1st.

”I’m cool, I am nice,” he announced with a grin, still a tiny bit out of it.

Executive Don Mattingly expects Kemp to return this season. The injury influences Kemp at the plate and the Dodgers wanted to discover exactly what was wrong. Odds

”We lost him at least momentarily, we all know that,” Mattingly asserted before the game. ”The shoulder with Matt has sort of gotten to the point where we want to find out exactly what it is.”

The Dodgers had made a plan to do further tests during Thursday’s off day but Kemp was concerned about missing a couple of days in a critical stretch, Mattingly announced. Thanks to the shot for the dye to be inserted, players sometimes need a day or two to recover.

”I think he’s come to the realization he should confirm what this is, and we’ll go from there,” Mattingly expounded. ”He had no wish to miss any days, which is excellent. But we still have to find out truly what’s going on with this. .”

Kemp, last season’s runner-up to Ryan Braun for the National League MVP, is batting .315 with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs in 85 games. In the game at Colorado, he ran into the wall trying to track down a treble by Josh Rutledge. Kemp turned into the padding while running full speed and slid backward onto the alert track. He stayed down for several minutes as team trainers checked him over. He got up, took a drink of water and initially stayed in the game.

Kemp went Nil for 5 with an RBI and a strikeout on Fri. night. He already had 2 stints on the DL this season before the All-Star break with a strained left hamstring. Kemp is hitting .290 (58 for 200) with 6 home runs and 28 RBIs in 49 games since coming off the disabled list.
