Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp underwent surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left ankle on Monday, the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez reported.

Dave Stewart, Kemp's agent, told Hernandez that Kemp is expected to be fully recovered and ready for the start of the 2014 season.

Kemp originally injured the ankle on July 21, spraining it in a home-plate collision in a game against the Washington Nationals. It also ultimately forced the end of Kemp's season, and it caused him to miss all of the Dodgers' postseason run, which ended last week at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS.
