Dodgers place OF Kemp on DL

By Associated Press

TORONTO >> The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sprained left ankle and activated left-hander Ted Lilly.

Out of the lineup for 11 games with a sore left shoulder, Kemp came off the DL before Sunday's 9-2 win over the Washington Nationals. He went 3 for 4 with a home run, but limped off the field after sliding into home plate on a force play in the ninth inning and has not played since. It's the third time he's been on the DL this season.

Kemp's DL stint is backdated to July 22, meaning he'd be eligible to return August 6, but manager Don Mattingly said Kemp might need more time.

Kemp is batting .263 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 62 games.

Lilly, 0-2 with a 5.09 ERA in five starts this season, has missed the past 42 games with a sore neck. He will pitch out of the bullpen.
