Red Sox Have Inquired About Dodger Matt Kemp

According to the Globe's Nick Cafardo, the Red Sox have made trade inquires with the Los Angeles Dodgers about Matt Kemp. The centerfielder is coming off two sub-par, injury-plagued years, but has been a powerhouse offensive force in the past. Obviously, Boston may need to replace Jacoby Ellsbury in the outfield and Kemp would certainly be an intriguing—if unexpected—option. Kemp has six years and $130 million left on his contract—but presumably, Magic Johnson would eat a big portion of that tab in any deal.
