The Los Angeles Dodgers are the owners of the best record in baseball and hope that their MVP candidate can return quickly to help them maintain that record.

Matt Kemp, who is currently on the 15-day DL, was given a platelet-rich injection on Tuesday according to the LA Times Dodgers beat writer Dylan Hernandez.

The platelet rich injection is intended to speed up recovery. It is described by the Orthohealing Center as a "cocktail of many proteins that collectively stimulate repair and regeneration"

Hernandez also shed light on manager Don Mattingly's plan for Kemp when he is ready to return to the lineup.

 

 

One game will allow the Dodgers to see Kemp playing in a real game situation and allow them to evaluate his progress. If all goes well, one game will be more than enough.

Hernandez also reported that Kemp will take another step in his progress on Thursday when he is likely to hit off a tee.

All signs point to Kemp being ready to come off the DL very close to when he is eligible.
