Kemp, Newcomb lead Braves into San Diego

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres will get a glimpse of a familiar face and an unfamiliar left arm when the Atlanta Braves come to Petco Park on Tuesday night.

The Braves arrive with Matt Kemp, a former Padre who has been battling a sore hamstring but could be in the lineup for the opener of a three-game series.

Kemp, who is enjoying a solid season, was sent to the Braves in 2016 for third baseman Hector Olivera. That was when the Padres ditched their philosophy to compete with veteran players, instead flipping their approach to a full-on youth movement.
