Lester For Kemp Deal Could Be In The Works

Multiple sources are reporting that a deal may be in the works between the Red Sox and Dodgers that would send Jon Lester to LA in exchange for outfielder Matt Kemp. FenwayNation reported on the early rumblings of this transaction last week, but it appears that discussions have now moved ahead significantly since then. Lester, interestingly, has said he would be reluctant to sign an extension with any new team—so his trade value is somewhat more limited that it might otherwise be. The Red Sox have also had their eye on LA's top OF prospect Joc Pederson. Stay tuned, this could get interesting fast.
