LOS ANGELES (AP) - Matt Kemp will undergo cleanup surgery on his left shoulder, a procedure that was planned before the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger was shut down for the postseason because of a sprained left ankle.

The team said the center fielder was scheduled to have the surgery on a joint in his shoulder on Tuesday at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles.

Kemp will begin rehabilitation a few days later and is expected to be ready for spring training.

He was already wearing a boot and using crutches because of swelling in a bone in his left ankle, leaving him as a spectator during the Dodgers' victory over the Atlanta Braves in the NL division series. Kemp celebrated with the team after they completeda 3-1 series victory Monday night.

Team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who will perform the surgery, said last week that Kemp has swelling in one of the major weight-bearing bones in his sprained ankle.

Kemp missed 52 games during the last two months while on the disabled list because of the ankle.
