Not bad, Not great

For a guy who was supposed to be our next superstar, Matt Kemp's 23 year old season left much to be desired. The much maligned Todd Hollandworth had a better season when he was ridiculed for winning the ROY. Among Dodger outfielders who have had at least 100 games and played 50% of those in the outfield and had an OPS+ > 100, Matt Kemp sits at the bottom. Still a nice season but one likes to see growth from age 22 to age 23 and that didn't happen, unless you like stolen bases. Thanks to Baseball Reference for the info. I didn't link to their Player Index system because they only allow one sort and I wanted this sorted by age and then OPS+.

Notice Andre Ethier making a nice showing at every age group.
