The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the market to make trades but haven’t yet been able to find a deal they think is worth jumping at in a big way.
Darwin Barney was acquired from the Chicago Cubs on Monday but that’s a low-key acquisition, where the Dodgers may be looking for more bigger movement when it comes to either adding or shedding pieces from their roster. Matt Kemp is one of those names that could be on the move as the Dodgers want to be rid of him but aren’t sure who wants him.
According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, the Boston Red Sox would be open to acquiring Matt Kemp but would need a lot of money to come back in any such deal.
Red Sox sources said over the weekend that the Sox would consider him, but there would have to be a lot of money coming back to Boston in a deal, and they would have to have an informed sense of how healthy he will remain going forward.
This is hardly surprising information as Kemp’s deal is something the Dodger wants to rid themselves of and it’s something that not many teams around baseball have shown an eagerness to help them with. Boston has been mentioned with Kemp in the past and the Red Sox have a trade history with the Dodgers, meaning this might be a deal that gets worked out if all goes well.
