Kemp (hamstring) went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Nationals. After the game, manager Brian Snitker said Kemp will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties for the rest of the season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is encouraging news, as Snitker mentioned prior to Wednesday's contest that Kemp could miss the remainder of the season. It doesn't sound like he'll be able to return to the field anytime soon, and seeing as the Braves don't have any interleague games lined up for the rest of the season, Kemp likely won't be anything more than a pinch hitter down the stretch, severely limiting his at-bats. Matt Adams (hamstring), Lane Adams and Adonis Garcia all could see starts in left field in his stead.

Kemp (hamstring) is still taking things "day-to-day" according to manager Brain Snitker, but may be out for the rest of the regular season, The Atlanta Journal Constitution's David O'Brien reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kemp will be out for a fourth consecutive game when the club faces Washington tonight, and according to Snitker, it seems to be a real possibility that he will remain out for the rest of the season. With this information, it would appear as though Kemp won't see the field anytime soon, at least not this weekend, although it seems to be a fluid situation at the present time.

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

EDGE Analysis

Kemp's hamstring injury is still bothering him after Monday's off day, so he'll ride the pine for a third straight contest as he tries to shake the issue. Matt Adams is also dealing with a balky hamstring, so Lane Adams will draw the start in left field, batting seventh.

Kemp (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
