Red Sox Interested In Kemp…Again?
Would you trade Jon Lester? To the LA Dodgers for outfielder Matt Kemp? According to ESPNBoston the Red Sox are at least talking to the Dodgers about it.
Lester is a free agent at the end of the year and everyone knows where contract talks stand.
Kemp is one of five outfielders the Dodgers have and they need to move one.
The problem with Kemp is injuries…and the amount of money he is still owed on a long contract. How does $118 million through 2019 sound?
Kemp turns 30-years-old in September. He is hitting .273 with 8 HRs coming off shoulder and ankle injuries.
The trade deadline is Thursday.
