|Dodgers not expected to make change to OF alignment |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/9/14) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday he doesn't expect to change the outfield alignment as Carl Crawford (ankle) is set to return from the disabled list this week, per MLB.com.
"I'm not really planning on making any big changes right now," Mattingly said.
Mattingly added he's happy with Matt Kemp in left field, and the platoon of Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke in center field.
"I like what's going on in center," Mattingly said. "We're playing pretty well. We'll talk about it. But as long as we're playing well and continue to win, we'll have conversations with everybody."
|Matt Kemp snaps out of funk with four-hit game |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp snapped out of an 0-for-16 slump with a four-hit game Sunday afternoon against the Rockies in Colorado.
Kemp singled in a run in the fifth and eighth innings, respectively. He added another pair of singles and finished 4 for 5 with a run scored and two RBI in an 8-2 victory. He is hitting .268 with eight homers and 33 RBI in 287 at-bats.

(7/4/14) The loaded Dodgers outfield does not have room for Matt Kemp on Friday in Colorado. He is out of the lineup in favor of Scott Van Slyke.
Kemp hasn't earned a whole lot of playing time lately. He is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and has scored just one run since June 25.
|'Nothing going on' between Red Sox, Matt Kemp |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(6/23/14) Despite reports the Red Sox could be targeting Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, a source tells WEEI.com there is "nothing going on." Boston needs to upgrade its outfield; Kemp is hitting .410 over his last 10 games.
Kemp is not on the trade market, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti insisted to The Boston Globe.
|Red Sox scouting Matt Kemp |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) The Red Sox spent time scouting Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp last week, according to the Boston Globe.
It's unclear if Kemp will actually be moved. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti has said he's not going to move Kemp recently. Kemp has also started to heat up at the plate. Through 233 at-bats, Kemp is hitting .275/.335/.459.
|The 2013 season marked the second straight year Matt Kemp's campaign was filled with trips to the disabled list. Shoulder, hamstring and ankle injuries were the major culprits for Kemp being limited to 73 games and preventing him from appearing in the postseason. In fact, he had shoulder and ankle surgeries in October, which could threaten his availability for the start of spring training. But barring any setbacks, the Dodgers expect Kemp to be "competitive" by the start of the 2014 season. Even when he was healthy last season, Kemp did not perform up to expectations and his lingering shoulder problem, which has plagued him since 2012, was probably a major factor in why he struggled. We know what a healthy Kemp can do, but his shoulder problems have taken its toll and who knows what type of player Kemp will be when he returns to the diamond this spring. If you take Kemp in the early rounds in drafts, understand there is plenty of risk associated with the upside he might provide.
