Mandatory Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsSince Matt Kemp sprained his left ankle, he’s been trying to work his way back into the Los Angeles Dodgers rotation.

However, Don Mattingly said that Kemp won’t be back in the lineup until he is 100 percent. Unfortunately, that may not for until after the regular season.

While playing in Arizona last week, as a part of his rehab, Kemp’s right hamstring tightened up.

Mattingly said:

"When the hamstring kind of jumps back in there and becomes involved, that means we have more issues.  at some point we run out of time... I haven't talked to [Kemp] directly. But the trainers say he is frustrated.”

This may be a blessing in disguise because while playing in Rancho Cucamonga, Kemp wasn’t hitting very well.
