The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated outfielder Matt Kemp from the disabled list for the third time this season.

Kemp isn't in the lineup for the Dodgers' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night.

The 2011 NL MVP runner-up first went on the disabled list on May 30 with a mild right hamstring strain. He was activated on June 25 but lasted only 12 days before heading back to the DL with inflammation in his left shoulder.

Kemp was activated on July 21 and went 3 for 4 with a double a home run and three RBIs before spraining his left ankle in a play at the plate in the ninth inning, sending him back to the DL for the third time.

In 62 games, Kemp is hitting .263 with five home runs and 27 RBIs.
