CINCINNATI (AP) -- All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp has been put on the 10-day injured list by the Cincinnati Reds because of a broken left rib, a move retroactive to Monday.

Kemp was hurt when he crashed into an outfield wall Sunday.

''I fought the wall and the wall won - as it usually does,'' Kemp said Tuesday. ''The wall is undefeated.''
