Braves trade Kemp to Dodgers in 5-player deal


Matt Kemp

That being said, Ken Rosenthal has also reported that Kemp is likely to either be traded or released by the Dodgers. The team has been taxed the past five years, including a $30 million penalty for 2017 for going over the $197 million luxury-tax threshold.

Adrian Gonzalez, who spent the past six seasons in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform, tweeted a farewell to the organisation, his team-mates and fans in the wake of the surprise trade sending him to the Atlanta Braves.

The 35-year-old Gonzalez, who spent four and a half seasons as the Dodgers' starter at first base, lost his starting role this past season to rookie sensation Cody Bellinger. Ten pitchers started games previous year even as they enjoyed a relatively smooth 104-win season. Given his albatross of a contract Kemp will be hard to move unless the Dodgers eat some of his salary or sweeten the pot with prospects.

Wilkerson was benched for most of the first quarter against Kansas City this month for being late to a team meeting. They could also designate him as a post-June 1 cut to free up $17 million and incur a $3 million dead money charge.

But the Dodgers will be willing to deploy many more starters than that - they made liberal use of the 10-day disabled list in 2017 - to get through the season.

The trio of Gonzalez, McCarthy and Kazmir were owed approximately $47.5 million in 2018.

Kemp was still technically to be paid by the Dodgers for the next two seasons on a contract worth over $43 million.

Kemp, 33, was the 2011 NL MVP runner-up after hitting 39 homers for the Dodgers, and he signed an eight-year, $160 million extension after that season. On Saturday, they moved significantly closer to that goal. Morse was immediately designated for assignment.

The Braves have confirmed the trade via their official Twitter account. The Braves are in the midst of a massive rebuild, but they are also looking to take that first step towards a better future.

The Dodgers, on the other hand, already have their eyes set on the 2018 offseason.
