Los Angeles Dodgers shut down Matt Kemp - ESPN Los Angeles

Not a shocking revelation.

Just days before their first playoff appearance in four seasons, the Los Angeles Dodgers learned Sunday they’ll be without center fielder Matt Kemp throughout the postseason.

A Sunday morning MRI to Kemp’s injured left ankle showed significant swelling and weakening in the bone, according to Dodgers team doctor Neal ElAttrache, and the team decided that Kemp could do further damage by playing on the injury. He left the Dodgers clubhouse on crutches.
