Dodgers OF Kemp to have shoulder surgery
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp will undergo a left shoulder surgery Tuesday, the team announced.
Kemp, who was ruled out of the postseason due to an ankle injury, is expected to be ready for spring training.
The surgery is a cleanup of his left A-C joint, the same shoulder he had major surgery on last offseason after injuring himself running into the outfield wall in Colorado.
He was already wearing a boot and using crutches because of swelling in a bone in his left ankle, leaving him a spectator during the Dodgers' victory over the Atlanta Braves in the NL Division Series. Kemp celebrated with the team after they completed a 3-1 series win Monday night.
Team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who will perform the surgery, said last week that Kemp has swelling in one of the major weight-bearing bones in his sprained ankle.
Kemp missed 52 games during the past two months while on the disabled list because of the ankle.
