Rockies' Matt Kemp: Sitting out amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

Kemp's grasp on the Rockies' primary designated-hitter role may be loosening, as he's recorded only one hit in 19 at-bats over his last five starts to drop his season-long batting line to .228/.296/.412. Kevin Pillar will spell Kemp as the Rockies' DH in the series finale.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Kemp hits the bench for the second time in three games. His .234/.303/.423 season slash line translates to a rather poor 77 wRC+, given that gets to play half his games at Coors Field. That's a rather uninspiring figure for a designated hitter. Raimel Tapia will fill that spot Friday, with David Dahl starting in left.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Getting Wednesday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Though he'll be sitting out the series finale, Kemp appears to be the Rockies' primary designated hitter at the moment. He started in five of the team's previous six games, going 4-for-20 with two home runs and four RBI. With Kemp getting the day off, Charlie Blackmon will receive a day out of the field and handle DH duties.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Drills sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Angels.

Kemp tied the game at 1-1 with a solo shot off Andrew Heaney in the second. It marked the 35-year-old's sixth long ball and 21st RBI on the season.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Slugs fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Padres.

Kemp took Zach Davies yard in the sixth inning to log his fifth home run of the season. He's gotten only sporadic playing time of late, though he now has two homers in his last three starts, also collecting five hits in 13 at-bats. For the season, Kemp is now hitting .263/.340/.453 across 106 plate appearances.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Hits go-ahead homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and an additional run scored in Sunday's 7-6 win over the Dodgers.

Kemp got aboard with a single and scored on a Josh Fuentes home run in the second inning. In the eighth, Kemp hit the go-ahead homer. The 35-year-old now has four homers, 17 RBI and 16 runs scored in 32 games this season.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Padres. He will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth.

Kemp did not play in Sunday's loss to San Diego, but he returns to the lineup for Monday's series finale. Garrett Hampson will sit, Daniel Murphy will play first base and Ryan McMahon will shift to the keystone.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Goes yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during Friday's loss to the Padres.

Kemp extended Colorado's early lead with a 468-foot, three-run home run against Zach Davies in the first inning. Unfortunately, the Rockies came up short. The long ball was the third of the year for the 35-year-old, who is batting .246/.333/.420 with 15 RBI.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp (not injury related) is starting at DH and hitting seventh Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Kemp sat out Wednesday's game in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., but he's back in action for Thursday's series finale. The veteran slugger, who is hitting .246 with two home runs this season, will face right-hander Zac Gallen in his return to the lineup.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Won't play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp announced via his personal Instagram account he won't play Wednesday against the Diamondbacks in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The 35-year-old was slated to bat fifth as the designated hitter, but he won't be in the lineup. The Brewers and Reds and the Mariners and Padres have also postponed their games for Wednesday, with other teams discussing whether to follow suit.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Kemp has seen some playing time open back up after the Rockies placed David Dahl (back) and Chris Owings (hamstring) on the injured list over the last two days, but the 35-year-old still won't be guaranteed a spot in the everyday lineup. While Kemp should at least handle a part-time role at designated hitter in the short term, Rockies manager Bud Black will also likely use that spot in the lineup to give some other everyday players days out of the field.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Sits again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp remains out of the lineup Tuesday in Houston, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Kemp started nine of the first 10 games in August but has since been in the lineup for just two of the last seven. With a .531 OPS over his last 11 games, it's no surprise to see his opportunities start to fade. Daniel Murphy will rest his legs as the designated hitter Tuesday, with Ryan McMahon starting at first base.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Retreats to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp isn't in the lineup Monday against the Astros.

Kemp's bat got hot Sunday as he went 2-for-4 with three runs in the series finale against the Rangers, but he'll get a day off to begin the Rockies' road trip. David Dahl will serve as the designated hitter Monday.

August 14, 2020 04:24 PM
Rockies' Matt Kemp: Sitting again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of the lineup Friday against the Rangers.

Kemp finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest while mired in a 4-for-23 slump. Raimel Tapia will serve as the designated hitter Friday for Colorado.

August 12, 2020 01:20 PM
Rockies' Matt Kemp: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Kemp is stuck in a 4-for-23 slump at the plate over his last eight games, so manager Bud Black will keep him on the bench for the second straight day. Charlie Blackmon will get a turn as the designated hitter Wednesday, but Kemp should still be the primary option for those duties if he's able to pick up the pace at the plate in the near future.

August 11, 2020 05:00 PM
Rockies' Matt Kemp: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is not starting Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Kemp sits after starting nine of the last 10 games. He's looked good at the plate through his first 46 plate appearances for the Rockies this season, hitting .256/.370/462. David Dahl will rest his legs as the designated hitter Tuesday, with Garrett Hampson starting in center field.

August 5, 2020 04:16 PM
Rockies' Matt Kemp: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants.

Kemp has been on a tear over four consecutive starts since the Rockies returned to Coors Field, going 4-for-15 with two home runs and five RBI. However, he'll take a breather Wednesday as Charlie Blackmon shifts to designated hitter with Raimel Tapia starting in right field and batting seventh.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Starting fourth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp will serve as the Rockies' designated hitter for the fourth straight game Saturday.

Kemp started just one of the first six games but seems to be trusted with an everyday role at this point, starting once against a lefty followed by three straight starts against righties. He's made a strong impression in his first 20 plate appearances for the Rockies, hitting .353 with a pair of homers and seven RBI.

August 2, 2020 11:16 PM
Rockies' Matt Kemp: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Sunday against the Padres.

Kemp took Zach Davies deep in the fourth inning, yanking an offering down the left field line and well into the stands. It was his second home run of the season and his second in as many games. While Kemp hasn't been a full-time player, he's managed to get on base eight times in 16 plate appearances and also has a double in addition to the pair of home runs.

Rockies' Matt Kemp: Clubs first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Padres.

Kemp took Padres reliever Cal Quantrill deep in the third inning for his first homer of the year. Kemp also got aboard with a walk in the fifth and scored on a Chris Owings single. The 35-year-old Kemp has added four RBI and three walks in 12 plate appearances. He doesn't get many starts anymore, but he's been a productive hitter in limited time in 2020.
