DENVER -- Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is out of the lineup a day after he collided with the center-field wall, but tests showed no structural damage to his left knee and jaw.

Kemp was not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Colorado Rockies, and he was listed as day to day with a bone bruise around the left knee and intense body soreness overall.

Kemp ran into the wall while chasing a fly ball.

"He feels like a truck hit him," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

In a separate move, the Dodgers placed left-handed reliever Scott Elbert on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Right-handed reliever Shawn Tolleson, who was optioned on Monday, was recalled from Class A Rancho Cucamonga. ... nning-wall

Not faulting the effort of Kemp, but as a gold glove CF, he should have accounted for where the wall was having played at Coors before. Glad it's nothing serious too.

^^Yeah thankfully it's not more serious. Hopefully Matt can play tomorrow night vs the DBakcs. And thankfully we were able to get one in Colorado- almost gave it away there in the end. We definitely can't afford to slide further back in the standings.

Yeah Dave, glad we were able to salvage at least one game. Seemed like the Rockies were the ones with the power lineup the first two games of the series.

We'll have to bounce back and at least take the series from the DBacks. Pitching is becoming a bigger concern to me now. Other then Kershaw we don't have a dependable pitcher.
