Matt Kemp Watch - 15 Day DL - Hamstring

While chasing down a Mike Trout double in the gap, Matt Kemp injured himself and could very easily end up on the 15-Day DL.  Kemp is hitting just .251 with 2 home runs and 17 RBI, no where near the production expected of a guys who was most likely selected in the first round of your fantasy baseball draft.  To be honest, Kemp has been struggling since September of last season, when he batted just .245 over 98 ABs.  He is hitting just .249 over his last 289 ABs. 

Hopefully this opens up more playing for Scott Van Slyke who is absolutely worth owning in all league formats.  In 31 ABs Van Slyke has 4 doubles and 4 home runs batting .290.
