The Dodgers' superstar rookie outfielder hit .436/.467/.713 with seven home runs in his debut month in Major League Baseball and was a larger than life figure on the baseball field.

Dodgers May review: Bad, bad, bad


Inept offense and a bad back end of the bullpen sent the Dodgers to the worst May record in the 130-year history of the franchise.


Dodgers April review: Offensively challenged

Dodgers April In Review: The Matt Kemp Show


The Dodgers picked up where they left off at the end of last season. After a 17-11 August and a 17-9 September to end 2011, the Dodgers began 2012 with a 16-7 April, thanks in large part to Matt...
