Kemp (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Matt Adams is also dealing with a balky hamstring, so Lane Adams will draw the start in left field, batting seventh.

The Braves are off Monday, so Kemp could make his return to the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals.
Kemp (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets. Jace Peterson will take over in left field with Nick Markakis moving to the cleanup spot against right-hander Jacob deGrom. Kemp spent nearly three weeks on the DL with a hamstring strain earlier in the second half, but there has been nothing to suggest this latest issue is more than a day-to-day concern.
Kemp was forced to leave Friday's game against the Mets due to left hamstring tightness. It has been a rough second half for Kemp, as he has played in just 37 of 61 games for Atlanta since the All-Star break. Kemp does have seven home runs in those 37 games, but otherwise it has been a struggle, as he owned just a .254/.283/.435 batting line with 27 strikeouts against just six walks in the second half entering Friday's contest. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Kemp is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins. Kemp has slugged two home runs over the last five games. However, he's struggled to consistently get on base and has gone just 4-for-21 (.190) with eight strikeouts and no walks in that time. He'll get the day off while Matt Adams starts in left field.
