TORONTO  - With his left ankle still swollen Wednesday, Matt Kemp was placed on the disabled list for the third time this season. "We were hoping that over 48 hours, it would get better," Manager Don Mattingly said. "It hasn't. " The move is retroactive to Monday, meaning Kemp could be activated Aug. 6, when the Dodgers play the second game of a four-game series in St. Louis. But Mattingly acknowledged he didn't know whether Kemp would be ready to play by then.

TORONTO - Matt Kemp could soon be placed on the disabled list for the third time this season. Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp, who sprained his left ankle Sunday, probably will miss the Dodgers' three-game series in Toronto against the Blue Jays. Mattingly also sounded less confident than he was a day earlier that Kemp would avoid the DL. “I probably don't feel as good about it today as I did yesterday,” Mattingly said. “It could go the wrong direction.” The decision of whether to place Kemp on the DL could be made in the next 48 hours, during which the team's medical staff will see if the swelling in his ankle subsides.

TORONTO - Matt Kemp soon could be back on the disabled list. Over the next day or two, the Dodgers' medical staff will determine whether a sprained left ankle will require that Kemp be put on the disabled list for the third time this season. Kemp's ankle was still considerably swollen Monday. "I don't know if we really know how bad it is," Manager Don Mattingly said. Mattingly backtracked from comments he made the previous day, when he said he was confident Kemp would avoid the DL. Kemp rolled his ankle in a home-plate collision Sunday in his first game back from his latest DL stint.

WASHINGTON - His left ankle wrapped in blue tape, Matt Kemp grunted as he limped to his locker. "It's not bad," Kemp said. "I hope it's not bad. " Kemp made a spectacular return from the disabled list Sunday, coming within a triple of the cycle to lead the Dodgers to their 20th victory in 25 games, a 9-2 win over the Washington Nationals that completed their three-game sweep. But whatever excitement Kemp felt about how he hit in his first game in just over two weeks was tempered by the pain he felt in his ankle, which he rolled in a ninth-inning play at home plate.

WASHINGTON - As the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline approaches, the Dodgers' targets are far more modest than they were a year ago. Last season, the Dodgers were determined to add star players, and they did. They acquired Hanley Ramirez from the Miami Marlins in July. They didn't stop there, adding Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett in an August waiver deal with the Boston Red Sox. General Manager Ned Colletti doesn't anticipate his team making such franchise-altering deals this year.

Albert Pujols has a .334 career average after the All-Star break, the best mark of any active player and fifth-best in major league history. The Angels would appreciate it if that trend continued this summer. The designated hitter began Friday with a .249 average, .324 on-base percentage and .429 slugging percentage, steep drops from his career slashline of .325/.414/.608 going into 2013 and last season's .285/.343/.516 marks. Pujols, slowed all season by plantar fasciitis in his left foot and a sore right knee, ranks second on the team with 57 runs batted in and is tied for second with 15 home runs, decent production considering his average and American League-leading 18 double-play grounders.

WASHINGTON  - Yasiel Puig is being sued for $12 million by a man in Cuba who claims Puig knowingly made false statements that resulted in his receiving a seven-year prison sentence. The complaint was filed in a federal district court in Florida. Puig declined to comment on the situation. Puig's agent, Jaime Torres , said his client has retained a lawyer who is in the process of filing an "aggressive" response. Plaintiff Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot is in Cuba, but his Miami-based lawyers argue that United States courts have jurisdiction over this case under the Torture Victim Protection Act of 1991.

WASHINGTON - The Dodgers have a simple explanation for how they turned around their season: They became healthy. The team's blueprint for reaching the playoffs is equally simple. "One of the biggest keys is having our guys out there," first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. As the Dodgers return from the All-Star break Friday here against the Nationals, they are only 2 1/2 games behind the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League West. And they are as close to full strength as they have been this season.

Andre Ethier, model teammate. Imagine that. Ethier has done everything the Dodgers have asked of him this season without uttering a single complaint publicly. He has sat several times when they faced left-handed hitters. When Matt Kemp went down with a hamstring injury, he moved from right field to center. When Kemp returned, he went to left. When Kemp landed on the disabled list again, he moved back to center. "His flexibility has really allowed us to do a lot of things," Manager Don Mattingly said.

PHOENIX - Matt Kemp is back on the disabled list, this time because of irritation in the AC joint of his left shoulder. The Dodgers also placed Stephen Fife on the disabled list with inflammation in his throwing shoulder Kemp hurt his shoulder on a swing-and-miss Friday night in San Francisco and sat out the remaining two games of the series against the Giants. He tested his shoulder in early batting practice Monday and still felt pain. “It's going to take more than a couple days, I would think,” Kemp said.
