Dodgers, Kemp Talking Extension

The Dodgers, unlikely to pursue top free agents Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder because the team is for sale, nonetheless are in negotiations on a long-term contract extension for Matt Kemp that have become “more constructive lately,” according to a baseball source. Kemp, a contender for NL MVP after already winning a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger, was believed to be seeking a six- or seven-year contract. He just finished a two-year, $11.1 million deal and is eligible for one-more arbitration season before free agency. The Dodgers under general manager Ned Colletti have not given a contract beyond Juan Pierre’s five-year deal. — Ken Gurnick
