More likely Ethier and Pierre at LF and Kemp firm in RF. You have to consider that it's really put up or shut up time for Colletti as he refused every chance to use Kemp as trade bait for an ace pitcher. Kemp will likely get the nod over Ethier to have first crack at starting.
On paper, Kemp is the real deal. I think he still needs to improve in his pitch recognition and make better baserunning decisions, but he has the skill set to hit for contact and power. He's been compared to Manny and Grady Little once even uttered a Joe Dimaggio comparison. Both seem extreme, but Kemp reminds me more of a Derrek Lee type. He's got good speed for a guy his build, but a really sweet power stroke. If he improves his batting eye, perhaps I'll start believing he's a Manny type (with a little less power but more speed).
As for where Kemp is being drafted, I don't blame guys for taking him in the 9th-11th round range, but when you consider that the likes of Jeremy Hermida and Billy Butler tend to be taken later, they're better bargains possibly than Kemp.
