Matt Kemp put on IL by Reds because of broken rib

CINCINNATI (AP) — All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp has been put on the 10-day injured list by the Cincinnati Reds because of a broken left rib, a move retroactive to Monday.

Kemp was hurt when he crashed into an outfield wall Sunday.

“I fought the wall and the wall won — as it usually does,” Kemp said Tuesday. “The wall is undefeated.”

Kemp is batting .200 with one home run and five RBIs in 20 games.
