WHAT? Matt Kemp Traded To The San Diego Padres! Word is, the Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed on a trade outfielder Matt Kemp to the San Diego Padres. has got the details via who reports on the change up:


In the deal, L.A. will get catcher Yasmani Grandal, pitcher Joe Wieland and prospect right-hander Zach Eflin, while the Padres get Kemp and catcher Tim Federowicz.

Additionally, the Dodgers will send about $32 million to cover part of Kemp’s remaining $107 million salary.

30-year-old Kemp is a two-time All-Star, but has missed more than 150 games over the last three seasons due to injury. He underwent a major shoulder operation after playing 106 games in 2012 and ankle surgery after playing 73 games in 2013.
