LOS ANGELES -- Matt Kemp continues to do more work each day while rehabbing his injured left hamstring, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly isn't committing to a return date for the injured outfielder. "We're just moving forward with him, doing more activities and running," Mattingly said. As for injured starter Ted Lilly, Mattingly said everything is "status quo" and that he hasn't heard anything about shoulder surgery being an option.
Mattingly said infielder Mark Ellis, on the DL with a knee injury, has been doing "quite good," noting that he has been throwing and that he'd possibly hit off a tee on Monday. He said Ellis could hit in a group and be on the field by the end of the homestand. Mattingly added Javy Guerra is also doing good six days after knee surgery, walking around and playing catch. Mattingly said Guerra could be on the field at the end of the homestand, as well.
