Matt Kemp day-to-day with knee contusion

Matt Kemp was diagnosed with a knee contusion after crashing into the outfield wall on Friday. The injury is not considered to be serious, and Kemp is considered day-to-day and may not even miss any time.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp has since said that he is fine and will be in the lineup Saturday, but it is possible that the Dodgers could give him a day off Saturday just for precautionary reasons. Through 11 games, Kemp is hitting .333 with one home run and four RBIs.

Matt Kemp goes deep against Oakland on Tuesday

Matt Kemp hit his first HR of the young season on Tuesday. He also added a double, going 2-for-4 with a RBI.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp in enjoying a nice start to the season, batting a respectable .308. While he is not an everyday player, he does play enough to warrant a roster spot in deep leagues. He should provide a nice BA with some power for owners.

Matt Kemp draws the Opening Day start

When the Dodgers acquired Kemp from the Padres, many expected him to be released, but he played his way into a starting role to begin the season. He was able to get on base twice in four plate appearances in his first game.

Fantasy Impact

With Justin Turner out for several months, Chris Taylor will likely fill in for him most days, leaving a spot open in the outfield for Kemp should he stay healthy himself. Kemp won't steal bases anymore, but he can provide some pop while giving a solid batting average.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) remains out Friday

Matt Kemp is out of the Braves' lineup Friday against the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Braves manager Brian Snitker said that Kemp will be limited to pinch-hitting duties for the remainder of the season, so he is not worth owning in any formats.
