The Los Angeles Dodgers activated outfielder Matt Kemp from the 15-day disabled list on Monday.

Though he was not in Monday's starting lineup against the Diamondbacks, Kemp is available off the bench and is looking to make his first appearance since spraining his left ankle on July 21.

Kemp has been on the disabled list three times this season and has been relatively unproductive in his 62 games when compared to his previous output.

He is batting just .263 with a .319 on-base percentage and five home runs.

They Dodgers also announced Monday they signed Japanese right-handed pitcher Takumi Numata to a minor league contract.
