Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick lands on DL with hamstring strain


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2015) What was anticipated is now official: Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring strain sustained Sunday night, per the Los Angeles Times.

Kendrick has been shelved with the same problem three other times in his career, but not since 2011. His absences have ranged from 15 days to six weeks.

The loss of one of the most consistently productive middle infielders in the game is a significant one. Kendrick has hit safely in 10 of the last 11 games and has eight multi-hit games during that stretch to strengthen his slash line to .296/.341/.418. He has scored 12 runs over the last 10 games.
