Miami Marlins have Signed Former Dodger Matt Kemp to Deal
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.

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.

How desperate are teams for talent? Desperate enough to bring in a horrible defensive OF’er, an admitted clubhouse problem, who has been dumped by 5 times – Dodgers twice, Padres, Braves, and Reds.
