The Dodgers won't have centre fielder Matt Kemp for the post-season because of swelling in a bone in his left ankle.

Los Angeles said Sunday that Kemp's season is over. He left the clubhouse on crutches after the Dodgers lost to Colorado 2-1 in Sunday's regular-season finale.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache says an MRI taken during the game showed microscopic evidence of swelling in one of the major weight-bearing bones in Kemp's sprained ankle.

The team's postgame announcement came as a surprise because a few days ago Kemp had said he felt good.

Kemp missed 52 games over the last two months while on the disabled list because of the ankle. He was scratched from Saturday's lineup in a precautionary move after starting the previous six games while trying to accumulate at-bats before the playoffs.

The Dodgers open the NL division series on Thursday at Atlanta.
