Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp underwent successful shoulder surgery on Friday for what reports are calling a torn labrum and rotator cuff damage.
Kemp had the surgery performed on his left shoulder [non-throwing] in Los Angeles Friday and by all accounts it has been deemed a success.
However, Kemp will not be able to swing a bat for at least three months, but all indications are that he will be ready to play by Opening Day 2013.
Any time an All-Star caliber player like Kemp has offseason surgery it causes for a situation to keep a close eye on. Though, it is good news that Kemp got the surgery over with as soon as the regular season ended.
Kemp had a very productive year for his fantasy owners in 2012, batting .303/.367/.538 with 23 homers and 69 RBI.
