Matthew Ryan "Matt" Kemp is an American professional baseball outfielder for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball.

He has been named to two All-Star teams and has won two Gold Glove Awards and two Silver Slugger Awards.

He began his professional career in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization in 2003, and played with the Dodgers from 2006 until 2014.

Kemp was drafted by the Dodgers in the sixth round of the 2003 MLB Draft.

After four seasons in the minor leagues, he made his major league debut in 2006.

He did not become a full-time player until 2008, when he took over as the starting center fielder for the Dodgers.

In 2011, Kemp led the National League in runs scored, total bases, OPS+, WAR, home runs, and runs batted in.

Additionally, he became the first player to finish in the top two in both home runs and steals since Hank Aaron in 1963.

He was traded to the Padres after the 2014 season.
