Kemp eyeing return to lineup on Tuesday
SAN FRANCISCO -- Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp remains hopeful for a return to the lineup Tuesday after missing his second start Sunday with a frayed shoulder labrum.

"He played catch, but didn't hit today," trainer Sue Falsone said. "Mostly just rest, and we'll let the off-day work for us."

Kemp received a cortisone shot Saturday in the shoulder, which was injured when he ran into the outfield fence at Coors Field in Denver. He gave no indication whether he'll be ready for the opener in Arizona Tuesday night.

"I hope so. That's the plan," he said. "I pray to God I can. With the off-day tomorrow, I'm sure that will help."
