Dodgers' Matt Kemp has rehab assignment extended

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is having a tough go at it in his current rehabilitation assignment. He's 0 for 11 at Class A Rancho Cucamonga in his first three games. Kemp has only hit one ball out of hte infield.

Manager Don Mattingly said that Kemp will not be returning to the Dodgers on Monday.

"He doesn't feel good yet at the plate," Manager Don Mattingly said Sunday. "He's not pushing us to say, 'I want to be there tomorrow.'"

The Dodgers have been rolling and it would help to have a healthy and productive Kemp in the lineup to increase their chances of winning the World Series. They have a good chance right now, but if Kemp is there playing like vintage Kemp it'll help the team dramatically.
