Outfielder Matt Kemp is playing like the Kemp of old. Not many expected him to perform as well as he has of late, especially considering he was coming off surgery that prevented him from playing in the 2013 postseason. After a summer full trade rumors and switching positions, Kemp finally found his niche in right field.
Kemp shared that he’s comfortable in right field since that was his primary position when he first played for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This season, Kemp hit .287 with 25 home runs and 89 RBIs.
The Dodger slugger has shined this postseason as he was 5-for-9 heading into Monday’s Game 3 of the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals. Kemp hit the go-ahead home run in Game 2, giving the Dodgers the victory. However, he struggled Monday and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Dodgers’ loss.
