Matt Kemp leaves Thursday's game with tight left hamstring

Matt Kemp was removed from Thursday's game against the Giants after hitting a single with left hamstring tightness, according to Mark Bowman of Kemp is day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp apparently tested well after the game, and there is optimism that he will be back in the lineup on Friday. Still, Kemp missed time on the disabled list with the hamstring injury earlier, so it's likely that the Braves will be cautious. Danny Santana and Lane Adams are the most likely players to see an uptick in playing time if Kemp is sidelined.

Matt Kemp hits game-winning home run in win over Giants

Matt Kemp went 1-for-5 with two RBIs Wednesday against the Giants but the one hit was a big one. Kemp hit the game-winning home run against the Giants in the 11th inning.

Fantasy Impact

The home run was Kemp's 12th of the season. Kemp has had a down few weeks but he is still hitting .320 on the year and producing solid power numbers.

Matt Kemp returns to starting lineup, goes 1-for-3

Matt Kemp, who had been removed from last Wednesday's game with a tight hamstring and had not started since, started in left field for the Braves on Sunday. He went 1-for-3 with a walk.

Fantasy Impact

It's obviously a good sign that Kemp was able to avoid the disabled list. On the season, Kemp has a .917 OPS and 11 homers, though it's worth noting that his counting stats have significantly slowed down since Freddie Freeman went on the disabled list.

Matt Kemp hits a double against the Nationals Tuesday

Matt Kemp went 1-for-5 with a walk Tuesday against the Nationals. The lone hit was Kemp's 19th double of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp is hitting .264 in June; which is much less than his .326 season average. Kemp is a little cold by his standards right now but expect him to heat up again.

Matt Kemp finished with one hit against the Mets

In a 2-1 loss to New York (NL), Matt Kemp went 1-for-3 with one walk and struck out once on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp's batting average and power numbers have dipped quite a bit since the start of June with his batting average going from an eye-opening .345 clip at that time to a now .326 average. He has failed to hit a home run too all month and has only managed to knock in two runs in that same span. He's still a viable start in all fantasy leagues but he isn't a must-start player at the moment in standard ones.
