Los Angeles Dodgers centerfielder Matt Kemp is out of the lineup a day after he collided with the center field wall but tests showed no structural damage to his left knee and jaw.
Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp sat out a day after he collided with the wall, but tests showed no structural damage to his left knee and jaw.
Kemp was not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's 10-8 win over the Colorado Rockies and he was listed as day to day with a bone bruise around the left knee and intense body soreness overall.
He ran into the wall while chasing a fly ball.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says of Kemp, ''He feels like a truck hit him.''
In a separate move, the Dodgers placed left-handed reliever Scott Elbert on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Right-handed reliever Shawn Tolleson, who was optioned on Monday, was recalled from Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.
