Kemp Set for Opening Day after Surgery

Beast Mode, as we all know, underwent shoulder surgery today. Word is that it was more than just cleanup that was needed, but Kemp should be ready for Opening Day on April 1.
Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp had surgery on his left shoulder on Friday and should be ready for Opening Day.

During the 60-minute procedure at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, Dr. Neal ElAttrache repaired a tear of the labrum in Kemp's shoulder and some minor damage to the rotator cuff, the team said.

Kemp will begin physical therapy in seven to 10 days and is expected to start swinging a bat in early January.
