Dodgers fans have had front-row seats to the surprise resurgence of Matt Kemp throughout the 2018 season.
On Monday, the veteran outfielder received league-wide recognition for his strong play.
Following an impressive stretch that included a weekend sweep of the Rockies, Kemp has been named the National League Player of the Week.
Last week, Kemp hit .429 (9-for-21) with three homers, two doubles, eight RBIs and six runs scored. The 33-year-old has not only been the Dodgers' top offensive performer amid a slew of injuries to their lineup, he's also quieted concerns over his defense with his play in the outfield. Kemp added his first outfield assist of the season Saturday, launching a rocket from left field to throw out Colorado's Charlie Blackmon at home plate at Coors Field.
