More Kemp Trade Speculation

CBSSports.com is the latest to speculate on an upcoming trade of Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, claiming five teams have “shown interest, or talked to” the Dodgers about Kemp, who has been unhappy since being moved out of center field. Dave Stewart, Kemp’s agent, was quoted as saying that “eight years is a long time to be in one place.” Stewart had predicted that Kemp would be traded at last year’s Winter Meetings. Trading Kemp, Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford would allow the Dodgers to promote top prospect Joc Pederson to play center field. Manager Don Mattingly has said he might play Yasiel Puig in center and Kemp in right. — Ken Gurnick
