Matt Kemp Activated by the Dodgers

Share

Matt Kemp was activated by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday in Phoenix. The question now is whether or not he will be of much use for fantasy owners in the final 13 days of the season. According to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, Kemp ran the bases "really tentative", so he plans to limit Kemp to pinch hitting duties for the first few days. Fantasy owners should not expect much in the final days of the season as the Dodgers are just trying to have Kemp avaliable for the playoffs. This has been a nightmare season for him and there is no reason to think that he is close to 100%. The Dodgers are dealing with the injury bug again as Hanley Ramirez (hamstring), Andre Ethier (ankle), and Yasiel Puig (hip) are hurting as well. As for Kemp, there is real no reason to roster him for the final two weeks unless your in a keeper league format.
