Matt Kemp will sit out the remainder of the Blue Jays series

Matt Kemp used to be the iron man of the MLB, but 1 1/2 years later is considered injury prone.

The Dodgers injury bug won't go away, and Matt Kemp continues to be the centerpiece of the issue.

"I'm probably not feeling as good about it as I did yesterday," manager Don Mattingly said regarding Kemp. "Either this thing's going to get better and we'll know pretty quickly or it's to be a little more severe." Kemp will not play in the final two games of the series against the Blue Jays, per USA Today.

The results of Kemp's X-rays were negative, but the DL could still be an option, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

Because of the DH spot in American League ball parks, the loss of Kemp isn't as bad, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

Around the MLB, the negative spotlight shines over Ryan Braun after finally admitting to using steroids. Most of the Dodgers declined to comment, but Skip Schumaker couldn't resist, per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.

Assessing the Dodgers level of play is comprised of excellent reviews, per Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com.

With the trade deadline approaching, the Dodgers should bolster their bullpen, per Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com.
