(8/27/14) Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 9-5 win over the Diamondbacks Tuesday.
Kemp kicked off the scoring with a two-run shot in the first inning, and though the Diamondbacks evened the score in the second inning, the Dodgers picked up a win with relative ease. Kemp owns a .276/.341/.465 line with 16 home runs, 61 RBI and eight stolen bases in 434 at-bats.
|The 2013 season marked the second straight year Matt Kemp's campaign was filled with trips to the disabled list. Shoulder, hamstring and ankle injuries were the major culprits for Kemp being limited to 73 games and preventing him from appearing in the postseason. In fact, he had shoulder and ankle surgeries in October, which could threaten his availability for the start of spring training. But barring any setbacks, the Dodgers expect Kemp to be "competitive" by the start of the 2014 season. Even when he was healthy last season, Kemp did not perform up to expectations and his lingering shoulder problem, which has plagued him since 2012, was probably a major factor in why he struggled. We know what a healthy Kemp can do, but his shoulder problems have taken its toll and who knows what type of player Kemp will be when he returns to the diamond this spring. If you take Kemp in the early rounds in drafts, understand there is plenty of risk associated with the upside he might provide.
