Matt Kemp played in his second rehab game for the Class A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Wednesday night, and the All-Star outfielder will continue to rehab through Sunday with the Quakes, including a trip to San Jose on Saturday and Sunday.
Kemp went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and three RBI on Wednesday for Rancho Cucamonga, and in two games with the Quakes is 4-for-7 (.571) with a walk, a double, two runs scored and three RBI. Kemp played five innings in center field on Wednesday night.
The plan for Kemp is to play four more games with Rancho Cucamonga, then travel to Kansas City on Monday, where he will compete in the Home Run Derby at Kaffuman Stadium in Kansas City as part of the All-Star festivities. Kemp was voted into the National League starting lineup but will not play in the game on Tuesday.
Kemp, who has missed 47 of the Dodgers' last 49 games through Wednesday, is expected to return to the Dodgers on July 13, when the Dodgers host the San Diego Padres in their first game after the All-Star break.
