The Orioles and Dodgers have discussed a deal between the two teams for Matt Kemp. This can be a way of pressuring both Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz to resign or as an alternative for both outfielders.
Kemp had a strong second half of 2014 for the Dodgers. Kemp batted .287 with 25 Hrs and 89 RBI’s for the Dodgers, last season. This showed that Kemp, still has the magic. leaning toward keeping him. They Dodgers lost Hanley Ramirez, who signed with The Red Sox, so Kemp’s right-handed power is something they’ll probably want to carry into 2015.
It’s going to take a lot to get Kemp, even though he’s owed big money. Kemp, 30, is due to make $21.5 million per season through the 2019 campaign.
