Matt Kemp headed to disabled list with hamstring injury
Matt Kemp's consecutive game streak ended at 399 games on Monday night when he didn't play in the team's victory over the Diamondbacks and then he was placed on the disabled list after the game.
The Dodgers placed Matt Kemp on the disabled list following Monday's game against Diamondbacks and the team called up Jerry Sands from Triple-A.
Before Monday's game, the Dodgers said Kemp was day to day with a strained left hamstring after undergoing an MRI earlier on Monday.
Kemp first suffered the hamstring injury on May 5 in Chicago, and since then he's hit just .200/.304/.250 and hasn't had a hit in his last four games. Sunday he left the game in the third inning after aggravating the injury while running to first.
The Dodgers' center fielder had played in 399 consecutive games, the longest active streak in baseball. That streak was broken on Monday.
