Not in the starting lineup at the start of the day, Kemp replaced Yasiel Puig who was scratched after a late arrival. It marks his first appearance since September 27th of the injury-plagued 2013 season.
In 73 games in 2013, Kemp hit .270 with 6 homers and 33 runs batted in.
The Dodgers hope Kemp will add offensive depth to the lineup of the defending National League Western Division champs.
The 29-year old is among the Los Angeles franchise leaders in several categories, ranking 6th in batting average, 5th in slugging percentage, and 8th in home runs.
To make room for the two-time All Star, Los Angeles optioned outfielder Mike Baxter to Triple-A Albuquerque. Baxter, 29, appeared in four of the Dodgers’ five games this season.
