07:18 AM ET 08.26 | On the upside, by Don Mattingly's account, Matt Kemp continues to improve and progress, but the manager isn't sure when Kemp will return. It's possible Kemp could begin a rehab assignment next week and be back with the team in September, but Mattingly hasn't been very good this season when it comes to guessing the return of players on the disabled list so he sidestepped giving a timeline on the return of his two-time All-Star outfielder and simply said he won't play him until he's 100 percent. "What I don't want to do is just throw him back in and put him in the middle of this thing when everything is going pretty good and he's not sharp," Mattingly said. "I really want him to be sharp when he plays. That's the biggest thing."
