Mets sign Matt Kemp to minor league deal

The Mets have signed Matt Kemp to a minor league contract.

Fantasy Impact

Having recently sent Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, and Jeff McNeil to the IL, the Mets need warm bodies in the outfield. Kemp was hitting .200/.210/.283 with a -0.8 fWAR in 20 games before getting cast aside by the Reds, so he's likely just organizational depth who could at most receive some reps against lefties down the road. He's no more than a deep-league add if ever promoted.

Matt Kemp released by Reds

The Reds have released outfielder Matt Kemp.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp was acquired in an off-season trade with the Dodgers. His eight-year, $160 million contract signed back in 2011 has now been traded four times. Kemp has been disappointing with the Reds this year and was currently on the IL with a rib issue.

Matt Kemp (ribs) placed on 10-day injured list

Matt Kemp suffered a broken rib and has been placed onto the 10-day IL. Phillip Ervin was called up as a result.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp will surely have his work cutout for him as rehabbing broken ribs can be brutal. In 60 at-bats, Kemp has been limited to one home run and five RBI so far in 2019. Cut ties with him in all formats if you roster him.

Matt Kemp hits three-run bomb Tuesday

Matt Kemp went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in the Reds' 14-0 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp punished a Wei-Yin Chen fastball for his second home run of the season. It's been a rough start to the year for Matt Kemp, but he put up an .818 OPS in 506 PA last year and could turn things around if given the opportunity. The problem is, he hasn't earned the opportunity to be more than a platoon bat only playing against left-handed starters. He has little fantasy value right now.
