Matt Kemp 2018 National League Comeback Player
Hear from Matt Kemp on being voted the 2018 National League Comeback Player:
Returning to the Dodgers, for whom he played the first nine seasons of his 13-year big-league career, Kemp playied a key role in helping lead Los Angeles to the NL West title in 2018, batting .290 with 21 homers, 85 RBIs with a .338 on-base average and .481 slugging percentage over 146 games. Kemp, who drove in his 1,000th run on his 34th birthday (Sept. 23), got off to hot start and reached the All-Star Game for the third time in his career and first time since 2012 while adjusting to more of a platoon role than he had been accustomed over his stellar career. Clay Buchholz and Miles Mikolas were the runners up.
