Matt Kemp

The Dodgers outfielder is expected to miss at least two weeks recovering from a right hamstring strain. A MRI on the injured muscle revealed a minor strain, meaning there was no tearing of true muscle fibers. However it is important to remember that damaged still occurred to the microfibers that make up the larger components of the muscle and the strain should be taken seriously.

Luckily this is not the hamstring that previously been an issue for Kemp. He spent nearly two months on the disabled list last year with a left hamstring strain, the first significant injury of his career. The fact that the injury occurred in a different leg bodes well for the short-term as he managed to avoid damaging the remodel tissue from last season's injury. However it could be problematic on a grander scale, particularly during rehabilitation.
