Braves' Matt Kemp: Has shed close to 30 pounds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp lost almost 30 pounds during the offseason, Bleacher Report's Scott Miller reports.

Here's another "Best Shape Of My Life" story with some history: He battled issues with his physique on and off, most memorably in his days with the Dodgers, who traded him partially because of them. A trimmer Kemp hopes to continue the revival he enjoyed last year, including his 35 homers that marked his highest total since his historic 2011 season. Perhaps he'll attempt to steal more bases, as well, which would further bolster his fantasy value as a top-100 pick.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Will open season in cleanup spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kemp is expected to open the season as the Braves' cleanup hitter, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

This isn't a big surprise after he slashed .280/.336/.519 with 12 home runs and 39 RBI in 56 games for the Braves after being acquired from the Padres last year, but the top of Atlanta's lineup could be more dynamic than you might expect in 2017, with Dansby Swanson the favorite to move into the No. 2 hole, and Ender Inciarte and Freddie Freeman both coming off strong campaigns. The 32-year-old Kemp has topped the 100-RBI mark in both of the last two seasons and seems poised to make it three in a row.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Ejected from Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp was ejected from Friday's game for arguing balls and strikes.

Kemp didn't hide his displeasure with a questionable call on a would-be ball four to Nick Markakis and was tossed between innings, and on his birthday no less. Manager Brian Snitker stuck up for Kemp and was also ejected. Mallex Smith took over for Kemp in left field.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Drills two homers in win over Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and three RBI against the Marlins on Thursday.

Getting liberated from San Diego has been a boon for Kemp even if it took him to another bad team in the Braves -- since moving to Atlanta, he's hitting .295/.346/.521, up across the board from his stats as a Padre. Kemp's quietly blown past 30 homers for the second time and 100 RBI for the fourth time, thanks in no small part to a burning-hot September in which he's hitting .361 with seven homers and 18 RBI over 20 games.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Blasts 30th homer against Braves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kemp went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly Saturday in a 4-3 win over the Mets.

Kemp's performance Saturday continues a strong September in which he's hitting .325/.364/.650 with four homers and 11 RBI. His solo shot in the sixth inning gave him 30 homers for the first time since 2011. With 97 RBI, he's on pace for his highest yearly total since he plated 126 in 2011.
