Kemp (hamstring) was added to Sunday's lineup against the Brewers. He'll start in left field and bat cleanup.

EDGE Analysis

The Braves initially released their lineup with Danny Santana drawing the start in left field, but ultimately decided that Kemp was healthy enough to return to action and issued a revised lineup card with that change. He'll look to build on his .320 average, 12 home runs and 35 RBI moving forward.

Kemp (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Kemp has now missed three consecutive games after being removed from Thursday's contest with left hamstring tightness. The Braves have an off-day Monday, so it's possible that Kemp will be able to rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Padres after giving his sore hamstring a full four days of rest. Danny Santana will man left field in the meantime.

Kemp (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Friday's game with the Brewers, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kemp left Thursday's contest with left hamstring tightness and will get the day off for Friday's series opener against Milwaukee. In his place, Danny Santana is getting the start in left. Kemp should be considered day-to-day and could return to the lineup Saturday, although it seems to be up in the air at this moment.

Kemp is day-to-day with left hamstring tightness, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was removed from Thursday's game after lashing a single and appeared to be favoring his left hamstring while running to first base. His status heading into Friday's series opener is in question, and if the Braves opt to give Kemp the day off, Danny Santana or Lane Adams would be the candidates to take over in left field.

Kemp (undisclosed) exited Thursday's game against the Giants in the fifth inning, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Danny Santana came on to replace Kemp after the veteran swatted a single for his first base hit of the game. Bowman noted that Kemp may have been bothered by his hamstring and added that Kemp had a similar reaction while running out a base hit earlier in the season. Still, there is no firm confirmation on the reason behind Kemp's exit at this time. If Kemp is given the night off Friday, Santana would be the logical replacement out in left.

Kemp went 1-for-5 with a walkoff two-run home run in the 11th inning of Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It's his 12th homer of the year but just his second in June, as Kemp hasn't been able to maintain the blistering pace he displayed through the first two months of the season. Even if his .320 batting average continues to sag, however, his spot in the heart of the Braves lineup should allow him to remain productive in the second half.

EDGE Analysis

Kemp was lifted from Wednesday's contest with a tight hamstring and was subsequently held out of the Braves' following two games on Friday and Saturday. He's apparently put the ailment behind him and is ready to slot back into the cleanup spot against Jose Urena and the Marlins.
