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.

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.
