|Padres | Matt Kemp hopes slump is over|
Wed, 27 May 2015 12:22:34 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp's bases-clearing double helped his team beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 4-0, on Tuesday, May 26. Kemp was hitting from the fourth spot instead of the third, which is now occupied by OF Justin Upton. Kemp was hitting .185 (17-for-92) in May.
Fantasy Tip: Manager Bud Black made this move to get Upton ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) up in the first inning and give Kemp ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) a bit of time to relax. It appears to have worked this week, but you may want to wait and see for one or two games if Kemp has found his bat again.

|Padres | Matt Kemp breaks slump|
Tue, 26 May 2015 23:45:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) could have some more success as the month continues, thanks to one dramatic hit. Keep an eye on his progress and don't be afraid to use him if he shows more signs of snapping out of it.

|Padres | Matt Kemp mired in bad slump|
Thu, 21 May 2015 10:04:28 -0700
San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is 12-for-69 in the month of May after hitting .326 in April. He stranded six base runners in the team's loss Wednesday, May 20. On the season, Kemp is hitting only .259 with one home run, and his .649 OPS is lower than SS Clint Barmes'.
Fantasy Tip: Right now, Kemp ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is doing nothing to justify his FantasyScore price. Until he shows signs of life and busts out of his ugly funk, you should stay away from him.

|Padres | Matt Kemp not worried about hips|
Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:00:51 -0800
San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (hips) said he's not worried about being diagnosed with arthritis in both of his hips when he took a physical with the Padres. He plans to stretch more before playing. Kemp appears to be in a good place both physically and mentally in camp with his new squad. Kemp hit .309/.365/.606 with 17 of his 25 home runs and 54 of his 89 RBI in the second half of last year.
Fantasy Tip: Despite Kemp's injury concerns, he'll remain rather expensive on draft day as a No. 1 or 2 outfielder. The move to pitcher-friendly Petco Park is another drawback that you'll have to live with, as well. His health will make all the difference in whether he'll return value at his placement.

|Padres | Matt Kemp's deal front-loaded|
Wed, 04 Feb 2015 14:05:49 -0800
San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp will make just $3 million in 2015 thanks to a front-loaded contract from the Los Angeles Dodgers. The accounting advantage should help the team in their pursuit of free-agent SP James Shields (Royals) and Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels, according to a source close to the situation. The front-loaded deal has left the Padres responsible for only about 14% of Kemp's $21 million salary.
