Latest Update Matt Kemp Hits Game-Winning HR in 8th Sun Oct, 05, 02:42 AM
A great athlete: has speed, excellent bat speed, a great glove, solid throwing arm and superb batting eye. Produces both as a run-scoring threat and an RBI guy while playing top-tier defense.
Flaws: : Strikes out far too much and can be guilty of being way too aggressive at the dish from time to time. Has had some injury problems in the past that have hindered his overall production over the years.
Kemp finished the season on fire as he hit .322 with nine home runs and 25 RBI over the final month. He's now 5-for-9 with the home run, two RBI and a run scored in this series and remains a huge threat to carry the Dodgers on his shoulder and lead them past the Cardinals..Analyst: Howard Bender
Kemp was a huge question mark for fantasy owners in 2014. Was he worth taking a flier on, in hopes that he would return to his glory years, or would he turn out to be a waste of a draft pick. Those who took fliers on him were rewarded. A .287 average, 25 home runs, 89 RBIs, and eight stolen bases are pretty great numbers for any player. Kemp enjoyed a successful 2014, and should be drafted earlier than this past year in 2015. A great bounce back season for Matt Kemp.Analyst: Colby Conway
The Dodgers have clinched a playoff spot and Kemp will be taking a routine breather. His has swung a white hot bat as of late and Los Angeles wants him as healthy as possible headed into the postseason.Analyst: David Kerr
Kemp blasted off for his 24th home run of the season -- he had nineteen just a week and a half ago. It's been an incredible second-half for the former superstar who appears to be 90% of his MVP-caliber form from years past -- minus the stolen bases. He'll be a divisive player in fantasy drafts next spring given his injury history and sudden power surge. Analyst: Spencer Silva
