The Dodgers lost their best player on Monday night as Matt Kemp was placed on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. The news was pretty much expected since before the game, when manager Don Mattingly, Kemp, and the training staff had a lengthy meeting with Dr. Neal ElAttrache about Kemp's MRI results, which confirmed a left hamstring strain.
"It's a mild strain, but the doctor said if you do it again, it can go from a grade one to a grade two, and then you're talking four weeks," Mattingly said. "Now he has a chance to get healthy, and make sure he doesn't have any long-term effects from this thing."

Gwynn Jr should get most of the playing time in CF. Ethier could see a couple games there. Sounds like LF will be mostly a mix of Abreu, Van Slyke & Sands with Sands also seeing a couple of starts at 1B vs LHP.
