Adjustment at the plate helping Matt Kemp
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dodgers batting coach John Valentin believes that an adjustment in the batter's box has played a role in the resurgence of Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp. Kemp has five home runs in his last 24 plate appearances after managing five in his previous 350.

Kemp has been vague when pressed on specifics, per the Orange County Register. But Valentin has not.

"He actually has straightened his stance," Valentin revealed. "It used to be locked. What what created was a difficulty to have the freedom to stay through the baseball. That offers a clear path to hit balls in and away."

Kemp has 27 hits in his last 75 at-bats for a .360 mark since July 20.

Matt Kemp slugs 14th home run Wednesday vs. Angels
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers designated hitter Matt Kemp went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 2-1 victory over the Angels Wednesday.

Kemp put his team on top with a second-inning home run and watched the offense pick up another run later in the inning. Though he didn't contribute anything else offensively, the two runs would prove to be enough for a win. Kemp has six homers in his last nine games and his now hitting .282/.347/.472 with 14 home runs, 50 RBI and seven stolen bases in 369 at-bats.

Matt Kemp passes through waivers; Hanley Ramirez does not
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dodgers placed many of their big names on waivers in recent days, and only one was claimed, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Heyman reports Tuesday only Hanley Ramirez was claimed and pulled back from waivers, meaning Matt Kemp is now eligible to be traded prior to the waiver deadline, which is at the end of the month. However, there is no indication the team is expected to trade him at this point.

Change in batting stance leads to turnaround for Matt Kemp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

In case you haven't noticed, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has been on a pretty good offensive run the last few weeks. He is batting .408 with a .776 slugging percentage, 1.258 OPS, five home runs and 14 RBI in his last 13 games.

A change in Kemp's batting stance has led to the offensive surge, per The Orange County Register.

"He actually has straightened his stance," assistant hitting coach John Valentin said. "It used to be locked. What that created was a difficulty to have the freedom to stay through the baseball. This offers a clear path to hit balls in and away."

For most of Kemp's career, including the start to this season, he has been hunched over a bit at the plate. Now, he is standing more upright. Valentin said Kemp's struggles at the plate finally led to the change in batting stance.

"We brought it up to him a long time ago. But him being such an accomplished player, he had to want to do it," Valentin said. "When he came back, he wasn’t the same player, because of his injuries. He’s battled that way, and he kept playing." But the stance, for me, was not allowing him to be better."
