Countdown to Matt Kemp’s comeback

Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has continued to progress in rehabbing from his off season ankle surgery, that has kept him out of his action this Spring.

After positive test results that enable him to progress in more workouts that include tracking down fly balls and running on the field, manager Don Mattingly feels strongly that Kemp will return sooner. “I don’t put that kind of timetable on it,” Mattingly told MLB.com. “As long as he’s moving forward.

Kemp continues to eye his return this season, although he will not be available for the Australia trip on March 22-23 against Arizona. 
I’m out there running again, I am happy. I’m good,” Matt Kemp said regarding his progress. He could make a return during the first week of the season at Dodger Stadium.

He’s swinging the bat good. It won’t be long before he’s in a game,” said Mattingly.

The important factor is to get Kemp healthy and last throughout the season, unlike his previous two seasons where he played a total of 179 games.
