LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp says he'll undergo surgery on his left shoulder Friday.
He made the announcement Wednesday after the Dodgers ended the season with a 5-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants.
Kemp has a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He could have his shoulder cleaned up in a minor procedure or he could have the labrum repaired, which would sideline him four months.
``It depends on what they got to go in there and do,'' the right-handed hitter said. ``It's just something that needs to be done.''
Kemp hit .303, with 23 home runs and 69 RBIs a year after being runner-up to Milwaukee's Ryan Braun for the NL MVP award.
