Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp and manager Don Mattingly both said the outfielder will likely head back to the disabled list after reinjuring his left hamstring Wednesday night, reports ESPNLosAngeles.com's Tony Jackson.

"I don't know what happened," Kemp told Jackson. "It's just kind of gave out. It's definitely frustrating, having just come back, and now I will be sitting out a while. ... I tried to hide it, but there really was no hiding this."

Kemp had returned on Tuesday from a 14-game absence following his initial hamstring injury. Then, in the first inning of Wednesday's game with the Milwaukee Brewers, while scoring from first on a double by Andre Ethier, Kemp aggravated the injury. He will have an MRI on Thursday to find out the extent of the injury.

The hamstring injury is the only thing slowing Kemp this season. He is an early season MVP candidate after his hot start. Kemp is hitting .355 with 12 home runs this season, and Los Angeles currently holds a league-best 32-17 record.
