According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, former Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Miami Marlins to help fill their holes in the outfield.

Kemp’s deal is a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Moreover, if you follow Kemp on IG, you also know that he’s been working on reinventing himself as an option at first base.

Kemp was spotted looking for a job at the winter meetings in San Diego, so his efforts must have impressed the Marlins enough to extend him this deal.

At 35 years old, Kemp still has a ways to go to build his value to a major league team. Last season with Cincinnati, injuries and general ineffectiveness limited the Oklahoma native to a .200/.210/.283 slash line for the Reds after being traded there along with Yasiel Puig by Los Angeles. He was released in early May before signing with the Mets for a short period.

Now he reunites with his former manager in Don Mattingly with a chance to shine in south beach.
