Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday because of a strained left hamstring, according to the Los Angeles Times. Kendrick suffered the injury while beating out an infield hit in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates and will be out until at least Aug. 24. The 32-year-old has a lengthy history of hamstring injuries and has missed upwards of six weeks with similar issues in the past, indicating that he could be out longer than 15 days. "He leaves a big void," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "For me, Howie is just a bread-and-butter leader. A big part of us. We'll talk about different options." Kendrick has enjoyed a strong season, fortifying the infield defense and batting .296 in the middle of the order. Infield prospect Jose Peraza was called up to fill the team's open roster spot.

Kendrick is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The 31-year-old will get what looks like a routine rest day after going 1-for-12 in his last three games and 19-for-78 (.244 average) with three extra-base hits so far in June. Enrique Hernandez will man second base and bat leadoff, with Yasiel Puig moving down to the five-hole in the order.

Kendrick (knee) took grounders and batting practice Sunday, but the hope is that he'll rejoin the lineup Monday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Kendrick continues to make progress on his knee, but isn't in Sunday's lineup. Fortunately, it sounds as though a return is on the horizon Monday, which would likely push Enrique Hernandez back to the bench.
