Braves' Matt Kemp: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp is out of Sunday's lineup against the Reds.

He was activated from the DL on Saturday after missing 19 games with a hamstring injury, and ended up getting six at-bats in an 11-8 loss, so perhaps the Braves want to ease up on the veteran in the ensuing day game. Matt Adams will start in left field and hit sixth. Now that the Braves' outfield is at full strength, they will be able to give strategic off days to the veterans down the stretch.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Reinstated from DL, batting cleanup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and is starting in left field for Saturday's game against the Reds.

Kemp tested his hamstring out Friday, and apparently everything felt fine as he's now back in the lineup for the Braves, batting cleanup. He's been bothered by his hamstring a couple times this season, but the 32-year-old has posted a solid .290/.336/.477 triple slash with 14 homers in 88 games when healthy. Micah Johnson was sent back to the minors to clear room for Kemp, who will face Robert Stephenson in his return to the lineup.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Now targeting Saturday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp will test his hamstring out Friday prior to his likely activation from the DL on Saturday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "I'm hoping that if he does that Friday they'll activate him on Saturday," Braves manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday. "We'll see. Something may happen tomorrow. But right now that's kind of (the plan)."

The manager made it clear that when Kemp does rejoin the club, however, he will immediately resume his spot as the starting left fielder. The 32-year-old has had some trouble staying healthy this season, but when he's been in the lineup he's posted a strong .290/.336/.477 slash line with 14 homers in 88 games.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Won't require rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves plan to activate Kemp (hamstring) from the disabled list before Friday's game against the Reds, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Kemp was able to ramp up his agility and running drills before Saturday's game against the Cardinals, and apparently everything went well as he is now planning to rejoin the Braves without embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment. He should immediately reclaim his role as the everyday left fielder upon activation, pushing Matt Adams to the bench.

Braves' Matt Kemp: Takes part in running Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp (hamstring) was able to run the bases Wednesday, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

Kemp is gradually adding more baseball-related activities to his rehab regimen, as he aims to return from a right hamstring strain. It's expected that Kemp will require a rehab assignment before he's eventually activated from the 10-day disabled list. The Braves will continue to deploy Matt Adams as their regular starter in left field until Kemp is cleared to return.
