Kemp injury update - Bad News or Really Bad News?

Postby bayside » Fri Oct 26, 2012 2:39 pm

So it appears that Kemp's shoulder injury was much worse than expected and his rehab from the resulting surgery is likely much longer/ more difficult now.
Horrible timing for this news to break since last week i just paid Kemp the 3rd highest salary in our FA auction in my 20 team dynasty league... not that any of you care about that.

So on to the important stuff:
How do you guys think this will impact his 2013 season?
Likely to be 100% ready for spring training?
Or is this thing possibly going to linger and sap power for 2 years like Adrian Gonzalez' shoulder injury?

I've said it multiple times in the past month or two: I am avoiding Matt Kemp at all costs in 2013. Ever since his hot April, he's been a hot mess. Between his wonky hamstring and injured shoulder he was pretty much useless for 5 months of the season. Maybe he'll be fine by the start of the season but I certainly wouldn't bet on it.

I'm 100% behind this. Some team will get Kemp at a decent discount perhaps, but I am not going to be that team. There are simply too many questions around him to be making him my 1st round pick or a top dollar keeper.
