According to mlbtraderumors.com
The dodgers are talking to boston about Kemp for Lester. Even though Lester would be only a 2 month rental. Sounds like Dodgers are willing to eat some of his salary also.
Why not Kemp? Right handed , young , under contract, Dodgers are willing to pay some salary. We can't resign all of our starters anyways and one of our starters would be for this season and next.
We are talking about taking on Byrd"s 8 million for two more seasons. Why not Kemp?
