The Los Angeles Dodgers have shut down outfielder Matt Kemp indefinitely after feeling tightness in his right hamstring, CBS Sports’ Mike Axisa reports. Kemp is currently on the disabled list in an attempt to rehab a sprained ankle.

Kemp, 28, was expected to rejoin the Dodgers last week but had his rehab stint extended after going 0-18 with seven strikeouts with High Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Kemp is in the second year of an eight-year, $180 million contract. He has played in just 62 games this season with the Dodgers where he has hit five home runs and stolen nine bases to go along with a .263 batting average.

This guy is made out of the finest crystal produced. Good thing for the Dodgers that they don't need him.

Are you sure this guy is 28 and not 38?
