    Kemp has four K's, but runs well in rehab game SAN DIEGO While cautioning not to overreact to Matt Kemp's four strikeouts Saturday night in the first game of his rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly also said Sunday that Kemp will be eased back into action upon his return. Mattingly said the carry and loft of Kemp's blasts Thursday were the best Kemp had shown in a while. Kemp struck out four times and Van Slyke three times on Saturday night. Scott Van Slyke, on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque along with Matt Kemp, is expected to return to the Dodgers and not the Isotopes when he's healthy, manager Don Mattingly indicated Sunday. "The rehab is to make sure the leg is good and he doesn't come back, hit the ball and reinjure it," he said. "I think there's room for him," Mattingly said of Van Slyke, who hit only .221 in 24 games, but provided needed right-handed power with six homers and a .559 slugging percentage.
