Kemp's recovery on track after light workout
ANAHEIM -- Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, sore from three rigorous rehab workouts, had a light day Saturday, manager Don Mattingly said.

Judging from Kemp's upbeat attitude, however, his recovery from a strained left hamstring remains on track. There still is no timetable for his return, although he's indicated he wants to participate in the State Farm Home Run Derby (he's captain of the National League team) even if he can't play in the All-Star Game.

Ted Lilly, who played soft-toss catch for the first time in three weeks on Friday, said he came out of it without aggravating the inflamed left shoulder that put him on the disabled list. Mattingly said he will throw every other day.

Reliever Javy Guerra also had no complaints after Friday's first bullpen session since right knee surgery.

Mattingly said pitcher Blake Hawksworth, who opened a rehab assignment at Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday night, will make another appearance Sunday. He's likely to take the entire 20-day window, after which the Dodgers will face a roster decision because Hawksworth is out of options.
