Report: Dodgers, Padres 'working hard' on Matt Kemp trade
The Dodgers are interested in catcher Yasmani Grandal, but Rosenthal reports it will take more than just him to get a deal done and notes that pitcher Matt Wisler, the No. 7 pick in the 2011 draft, is a possibility.
Kemp, 30, has five years and $107 million remaining on his contract. He batted .287 and hit 25 home runs while driving in 89 runs last season for the Dodgers. After two injury-plagued seasons in 2012 and 2013, he rebounded to play in 150 games last season.
Kemp's best season came in 2011 when he hit 39 home runs with 126 RBIs while batting .324 en route to finishing second in MVP voting.
Los Angeles finished 94-68 last season and won the NL West. The Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round of the playoffs.
