And for today’s scare, the Dodgers bring you Matt Kemp.
Kemp was a late scratch Friday night, the Dodgers said he was removed for precautionary reasons because of left ankle soreness.
This is the same ankle that earlier caused Kemp to sit out 53 games. He came off the disabled list Sept. 16 and had started every game but one since.
Kemp has been on the DL three times this season because of a hamstring strain, soreness from off-season shoulder surgery and the ankle issue. While rehabbing the ankle, he also irritated the hamstring again.
