Matt Kemp is in a July slump

I'm not picking on Matt Kemp. Just writing the obvious. Kemp is on a slump. Yes, there are worst Dodgers during the month of July (Juan Uribe & Andre Ethier) but Kemp is on track to have the best season of his career and not sure if we should be worried about this slump.

Kemp is batting .200 in 60 at bats during this month with a .258 OBP, .33 SLG and .591 OPS. He's not hitting for extra base hits, only 2 homers and 2 doubles.

Kemp was hot in June - .375 9 HR's 23 RBI's. Of course he can't hit like this every single month.

May - .253 7 HR's 21 RBI's.

Mar/APR - .368 6 HR's 19 RBI's. 

According to Baseball-Reference, he's still on pace to hit 40 bombs with 120 RBI's. Hopefully this is a mini slump and not a long term slump.
