Kemp, Van Slyke test out injuries at Albuquerque

SAN DIEGO -- Dodgers outfielders Matt Kemp and Scott Van Slyke began their injury rehab assignments Saturday night for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Kemp, on the disabled list since May 30 with a strained left hamstring, served as the designated hitter and went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts. Kemp effectively stole second base, but wasn't credited for it because Dee Gordon was caught trying to steal home on the continuation of the play.

Van Slyke, on the DL since June 11 with left shoulder bursitis, went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and committed a pair of throwing errors playing first base.

Both players are expected to remain with Albuquerque for at least two more games.
