Athletics' Tony Kemp: Swipes seventh base Monday
Kemp went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.
Kemp extended his on-base streak to nine straight starts with Monday's production. The veteran's steal was also a long time coming -- he'd last pulled off a successful pilfer July 1 -- and he's now just two swipes away from tying the career-high nine he recorded in 2018.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tony Kemp: On base thrice in loss
Kemp went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a walk in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.
The veteran gave the Athletics a glimmer of hope in the ninth inning when his timely knock plated Cal Stevenson, but that would be the final run of the game for the Athletics. Kemp's multi-hit effort was his third in the last four games, and he's now reached safely in eight consecutive starts, a stretch during which he owns a .300 average and .400 on-base percentage....

Athletics' Tony Kemp: Drives in three
Kemp went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk and three RBI Wednesday against the Angels.
Kemp was one of the few sources of offense for the Athletics on Wednesday, as he came to the plate with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and managed a bases-clearing double. Since the All-Star break, Kemp has hit .283 with 11 RBI and five runs scored across 52 plate appearances. He should remain a regular in Oakland's lineup against right-handed pitching, but overall he has just a 77 wRC+ and .269 wOBA in 101 games for the season.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Tony Kemp: Hits two doubles
Kemp went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in a 4-2 win over the Astros on Wednesday.
Kemp's RBI double in the fifth inning cashed in the Athletics' third run of the game and helped his team become the first to sweep the Astros in 2022. The three-hit game from the two-hole lifted Kemp's season-long average to .216. His career batting average is .241 and his 2022 BABIP is .243, so it is possible that the veteran's numbers continue to normalize over the remainder of the season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tony Kemp: Homers in second straight
Kemp went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two total runs and three total RBI in Monday's 7-0 victory versus Houston.
Kemp put Oakland on the board with his solo shot to right field in the third inning, and he knocked in two more runs with a double in the fourth. This was his second straight contest with a long ball following a 20-game homerless streak between June 26 and July 22. Power has never been a big part of his game, so fantasy managers in need of homers shouldn't seek him out despite the recent results.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Tony Kemp: Homers as in-game replacement
Kemp entered Sunday's loss to the Rangers as a defensive replacement in the seventh inning and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run.
Kemp was originally slated for a day off with southpaw Martin Perez on the hill for the Rangers, but the veteran made good use of his impromptu opportunity by blasting his third homer of the season in the ninth inning. The round tripper was a rare taste of offensive success for Kemp in July, and even factoring in Sunday's production, he still owns an abysmal .128/.196/.234 slash line across 51 plate appearances during the month....

Athletics' Tony Kemp: Snaps funk with double
Kemp went 1-for-4 with a double in a loss to the Rangers on Monday, snapping an 0-for-21 skid.
The veteran found himself bumped down all the way to No. 8 in the order, but his two-bagger off Garrett Richards gave him a momentary respite from a forgettable stretch at the plate. After his average and on-base percentage most recently peaked at .244 and .326, respectively, May 31, Kemp has hit just .150 with six extra-base hits (five doubles, one home run) over his subsequent 33 games....

The 30-year-old is up to a .220/.301/.280 slash line with six steals, two home runs, 13 RBI, 26 runs scored and nine doubles through 282 plate appearances.
