MIAMI -- One day after testing his sprained left ankle by making modest turns, outfielder Matt Kemp, who's on the 15-day disabled list, had a scheduled day of rest Tuesday, while Dodgers manager Don Mattingly conceded Kemp won't return until next month.

"September would be the best-case scenario for Matt," said Mattingly.

Kemp's injury, which the club originally believed wouldn't put him on the DL, instead has sidelined him a month.

With the Minor League season ending the first week of September, that also means it's less likely Kemp will play in an actual rehab assignment.
