Dodgers to work Derby into Kemp's rehab plan
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers are expected to get Mark Ellis and Andre Ethier back in the next week, and they are hopeful to get Matt Kemp back soon after the All-Star break to join them in the lineup.

Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp has another round of testing on his strained left hamstring until he starts a rehab stint, but he said the center fielder will still be able to compete in the State Farm Home Run Derby.

"The plan right now is that it would be part of what he's doing," said Mattingly, who added Kemp should be ready for rehab games before the All-Star break. "We're going to try to build it into the program."

The Home Run Derby can be seen on ESPN at 5 p.m. PT on July 9. The All-Star Game is on FOX at 5 p.m. on July 10.
