After swinging and missing at a pitch during his second-inning plate appearance, Kemp grimaced, dropped his bat, and immediately reached for his left shoulder.
He finished the at-bat, and the inning, but was then replaced by Carl Crawford.
Kemp was examined by Dr. Ken Akizuki of the Giants, and after consultation with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the Dodgers' team physician, the outfielder was diagnosed with an “irritated A-C joint.”
The discomfort was not in the area of Kemp’s previous surgery on the same shoulder.
Kemp received an injection in the area and was listed as day-to-day.
