Dodgers place Matt Kemp on 15-day disabled list, activate Ted Lilly.

The Dodgers placed Matt Kemp on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left ankle and activated Ted Lilly.

Kemp injured the ankle sliding at home plate in the ninth inning Sunday night against the Washington Nationals, his first game in the lineup after returning from a 15-day stay on the DL with inflammation in the AC joint of his left shoulder.

Lilly is expected to pitch out of the bullpen after missing approximately six weeks with a recurrence of pain in his neck. He last pitched June 4, pitching just four innings in a Dodgers win over the San Diego Padres.
