Trade talks continue to surround Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp as the July 31 deadline draws closer. It’s been quite the roller coaster of a year for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player runner-up.

Kemp, who is due $107 million over the next five years on his current contract, has drawn interest from numerous teams including the Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians.

The outfielder could be dealt to improve the Dodgers’ pitching rotation, but the Dodgers would likely be forced to pay a large portion of his remaining salary.

Some believe Kemp is likely to be traded due to his desire to return to center field, which manager Don Mattingly indicated is unlikely to occur.
