Matt Kemp scores against the Mariners Monday

Matt Kemp went 0-for-2 with a run and a walk against the Mariners Monday. This is only his second start since returning from an injury in July.

Fantasy Impact

It is good to see Kemp back in action but he has not looked like his normal self since returning from the DL.

Matt Kemp (hamstring) lands on 10-day DL

The Braves have placed OF Matt Kemp on the 10-day DL with a right hamstring strain and recalled Lane Adams from Triple-A.

Fantasy Impact

Kemp strained his hamstring on Friday night while trying to run out a double in the fourth inning. Look for Danny Santana, Sean Rodriguez and Lane Adams to get playing time in LF in Kemp's absence. Hamstring injuries can be tricky to return from so owners of Kemp can consider dropping him in shallow leagues.
