Torrid Matt Kemp launches first homer Saturday for Padres
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Matt Kemp continued to be one of the premier newcomers to any team this season with another big game Saturday against the Cubs. The only difference between his latest effort and those that preceded it is that this time he homered.
His first blast of the year, a two-run job in the first inning, gave the Padres their only runs until a four-run ninth tied it. He was also involved in the comeback by singling and scoring as he improved his slash line to .340./.358/.540.
Kemp is 12-for-29 with six runs scored and six RBI in his last seven games.
Padres OF Matt Kemp rolling into the Windy City this weekend
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) The Padres open a three-game series with the Cubs on Friday at Wrigley Field. One player that is probably happy to be rolling into the Windy City is Padres outfielder Matt Kemp, who has pretty impressive numbers at Wrigley.
In 25 career games at the historic ballpark, Kemp is batting .323 (30 for 93) with a .375 on-base percentage, .613 slugging percentage, .988 OPS, two triples, five doubles, six home runs and 20 RBI.
Kemp will be facing Jason Hammel, Kyle Hendricks and Jon Lester this weekend. He has never faced Lester and is hitless in three at-bats against Hendricks, but he is batting .280 (7 for 25) with one home run, two doubles, three RBI and four walks in his career against Hammel.
Kemp is off to a strong start in his first season with San Diego. He is batting .341 (14 for 41) with two triples, three doubles. six runs and seven RBI in 10 games.
Padres right fielder Matt Kemp continues early season roll
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Padres right fielder Matt Kemp continued his roll at the plate Saturday, going 4 for 5 with two doubles and an RBI in San Diego's 10-2 win over the Giants.
Kemp got going early with a double in the first and eventually scored on a Justin Upton single. He doubled again in the seventh, but was unable to bring Yangervis Solarte home. Kemp has a blistering .346/.393/.462 slash line in 26 at-bats to begin the season.
|2014 summary: Skeptics who expected Matt Kemp to miss a large chunk of time after he missed 145 games over the previous two seasons were proven wrong, as the Dodgers outfielder played in 150 games. His production rebounded, though not quite to the level of his near-MVP season in 2011. Kemp was slow out of the gate after having had ankle surgery in the offseason, and that is reflected in his year-end .287 batting average and 25 home runs. From June 7 forward, however, he hit .311 with 20 home runs and 24 doubles. Not surprisingly, Kemp seems to be all but done as an impact base-stealer; he stole eight bases in 13 attempts. He is absolutely done as a part of the Dodgers' outfield, as he was traded to the Padres in December.|
Playing time status: Not only did Kemp produce more over the final two-thirds of the season, but he rarely missed a start. Just maybe he has put his injury issues behind him.
2015 outlook: Even with his slow start, Kemp finished as a top 15 Rotisserie outfielder and a top 20 outfielder in points leagues. If he can carry over his mid-to-late-season surge, he has a legitimate shot to be a top 10 outfielder in 2015. Given his recent history of injuries and inconsistency, plus the potential for lost run production with his move to the Padres, you can probably draft him among the top 15 at his position. That will still require an early-round pick.
