Year AB R HR RBI SB BA Slg bb% ct% PX xBA ==== === === == === == === === === === === === 2006 154 30 7 23 6 253 448 6% 66% 138 246 2007 292 47 10 42 10 342 521 5% 77% 109 258 2008 606 93 18 76 35 290 459 7% 75% 119 275 There are minor, positive signs in his skills set. His PX number did increase from 2007 to 2008, even if it didn’t immediately translate into a higher Slg% and more HR’s given the doubling of AB’s. Also, even though his ct% dropped slightly, his 1H/2H splits were 71%/78%, which suggests that he was adapting well in his first full season and the potential for further growth exists. And all of this occurred while he was able to take more advantage of his speed numbers, making him a serious threat in all of the hitting categories. Sometimes we see those with the potential for more power ignore the speed side of their skills in their effort to produce more HR’s and RBI’s. That does not appear to be the case with Kemp. Expect continued growth at minimum, and the potential for a breakout season definitely exists here.
