Kemp, Rivera, Hairston nearing returns from DL
PHOENIX -- Injured Dodgers Matt Kemp, Juan Rivera and Jerry Hairston could be back with the team by next week.

Kemp, out since May 14 with a strained left hamstring, is scheduled to start a two-game Minor League rehab assignment on Sunday and hopes to be activated when he is eligible on Tuesday.

Rivera, healing faster than expected from a ruptured left hamstring tendon sustained on May 8, could begin a Minor League rehab assignment within a day or two of Kemp and be back by mid to late next week.

Hairston, out since May 7 with a left hamstring strain, began a two-game rehab assignment on Wednesday, going 0-for-3 while playing five innings in left field. He's expected to rejoin the club for Friday night's homestand opener against Houston.

Mark Ellis, placed on the disabled list on Saturday after undergoing emergency surgery on his left leg, is expected to be released from the hospital on Thursday, but he will be out a minimum of six weeks.
