On the bench for the last five days, Matt Kemp will return to the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds.
Kemp will start in left field, a position he last played as a rookie in 2006.
“I think I’m still a pretty good athlete,” Kemp said. “I think I’ll be OK.”
Kemp won Gold Gloves as a center fielder in 2009 and 2011.
He worked out in left field before games on Monday and Tuesday.
“A little different,” Kemp said.
The Dodgers' lineup:
Dee Gordon 2B
Andre Ethier CF
