That is not good, not good at all.

Matt Kemp, the Dodgers’ most heralded position player, appears to have aggravated his left hamstring again.

[Updated at 8:26: The Dodgers confirmed Kemp aggravated his previous hamstring injury and said he was scheduled for an MRI on Thursday.]

Kemp walked with two outs in the first inning Wednesday night and scored from first base on an Andre Ethier double.

Kemp scored standing up and without a play at the plate, but seemed to let up coming down the third base line.

Kemp walked into the dugout, snapped a bat over his knee and disappeared into the clubhouse.

Tony Gwynn Jr.replaced Kemp in center field to start the second inning.

Kemp was in his second game since coming off the disabled list Tuesday.
