The Los Angeles Dodgers have shut down outfielder Matt Kemp indefinitely after feeling tightness in his right hamstring, CBS Sports' Mike Axisa reports. Kemp is currently on the disabled list in an attempt to rehab a sprained ankle.

Kemp, 28, was expected to rejoin the Dodgers last week but had his rehab stint extended after going 0-18 with seven strikeouts with High Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.
