Matt Kemp went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Thursday's win over the Giants.
Kemp has three home runs over his first 10 games, but he's done very little otherwise, batting just .171/.310/.486 overall. He'll be in center field most days, but with four starting-worthy outfielders, the Dodgers can afford to rest him when his bat is cold.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "close to 20 teams" were present at Joel Hanrahan's (elbow) showcase at the University of Tampa on Thursday.
Heyman lists the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox, Royals, Rockies and Indians among the interested clubs and says there could be "quite a bit of competition" for the free agent reliever. Hanrahan was reportedly sitting in the 87-93 mph range, which is quite a bit lower than what he was throwing pre-Tommy John surgery, but Heyman added that the righty "looked fit and healthy." He figures to sign with someone soon.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated Thursday that he could drop Pablo Sandoval down in the batting order to "try to take some pressure off him."

Sandoval went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers, dropping his season line down to an ugly .175/.268/.302. Kung Fu Panda has batted third in all but one game this season, and he hit fourth in that one. Michael Morse and Brandon Belt are both off to nice starts and are candidates to move up in the order if Sandoval is moved down.
