Kemp played in his second intrasquad game in as many days on Monday and reportedly had no pain in his surgically-repaired left ankle. He went 1-for-5 with a walk, a sacrifice fly, two strikeouts and two runs batted in during the game. The Dodgers haven’t said when he’ll make his Cactus League debut, but it seems likely to happen before the end of the week.

Kemp isn’t expected to make the trip to Australia when the Dodgers play the Diamondbacks in a few weeks, but he does have a shot to be ready for the team’s Opening Day in San Diego. The outfielder was limited to just 73 games last year due to various injuries as he batted just .270 with six home runs and 33 RBI.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers remain favored at 13/2 to win the 2014 World Series. The Cardinals have the next-best odds at 15/2, while the Tigers are 9/1 and the Red Sox, Rays and Nationals are all 12/1, respectively. The Yankees are 14/1, while the Giants and Rangers are both 16/1, respectively.

The Dodgers are also favored to win the NL pennant this year, as well as the NL West Division. They’re 11/4 favorites to take home the pennant over the Cardinals, who are 19/4, and -200 to win the NL West. The Giants have the next-best odds to win the division at +325.
