Dodgers star Matt Kemp breaks bat over knee after re-injuring hamstring [video]

Dodgers stud Matt Kemp reaggravated a hamstring injury on Wednesday night and went ham on a bat in frustration. Kemp spent 15 days on the DL with a left hamstring strain suffered on May 13 against the Colorado Rockies. He appeared to be ready to take the field again and started out with a  two-game rehabilitation stint with Triple-A Albuquerque team and played his first game with the Dodgers on Tuesday night against the Brewers.

“I don’t know what happened,” Kemp said. “It’s just kind of gave out. It’s definitely frustrating, having just come back, and now I will be sitting out a while. … I tried to hide it, but there really was no hiding this.”

Kemp is scheduled to have an MRI on Thursday but it’s a safe bet that he ends up back on DL. The Dodgers have managed to hold it together in his absence.
