Just as the second half of the season is set to start, more trade talk has risen to the forefront of any discussion involving the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported Matt Kemp would be open to being traded and his desire is to play every day. Kemp’s agent, Dave Stewart, reiterated the outfielder’s desire to return to center field. Moving Kemp back to center field is something manager Don Mattingly has said he has no intentions of doing.

His claim resonated a bit more heavily when it was announced Carl Crawford would begin fielding fly balls in center.

Acquiring Kemp will certainly come at a substantial price. Excluding the remainder of this season, Kemp has five years and $107 million left on his contract. While Kemp did struggle at the outset of the season, he hit .317 in June, which correlated with him receiving regular playing time.
