LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp had surgery on his left shoulder on Friday and should be ready for opening day.

During the 60-minute procedure at the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles, Dr. Neal ElAttrache repaired a tear of the labrum in Kemp’s shoulder and some minor damage to the rotator cuff, the team said.

Kemp will begin physical therapy in a week-to-10 days and is expected to start swinging a bat in early January. The Dodgers open the season April 1 against San Francisco.

Kemp, a right-handed hitter, batted .303, with 23 home runs and 69 RBIs this season.
