Kemmer, 28, was originally drafted by the Houston Astros in the 21st round of the 2013 MLB Draft.
The southpaw outfielder has put together a very solid season in the Mexican League: 21 home runs, 49 runs batted in, and a 167 wRC+ in 58 games.
He has played for the Twins and Astros organizations and reached Triple-A and stayed there from 2016 to 2018. As recently as 2017, Kemmer posted a 142 wRC+ in Triple-A for the Astros.
There is still some upside with Kemmer considering his hot bat and his solid track record.
