Kemp, the runner-up for National League most valuable player honors in 2011, has struggled in his rehab assignment from an ankle injury.
"He doesn't feel good yet at the plate," manager Don Mattingly told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, "He's not pushing us to say, 'I want to be there tomorrow.' "
Kemp, playing for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, is 0-for-11 with five strikeouts.
Young, 36, will likely come off the bench to play first and third base. In 463 at-bats this year, Young is batting .272 with eight home runs and 41 RBIs.
