Kemp spent all of his 62 games in the field in CF, where he committed no errors, and had six outfield assists. He clearly has some wheels as he operated for most of the season out of the leadoff spot, and stole 16 bases on 19 tries (84.2%).

In June and July, Kemp was all over the place - .298 average / .387 OBP, with 21 runs. But as the season moved along, he had a harder time (OPS, by month: .908/.702/.597/.403). The stats with runners on/RISP are disconcerting, but given how fast he is and his plate discipline, 2010 should prove to be a more consistent season.
