This year's crop of free-agent outfielders is deep, with Jacoby Ellsbury and Shin-Soo Choo both potentially headed for $100 million-plus deals, and Carlos Beltran, Nelson Cruz, Curtis Granderson and Marlon Byrd rounding out a talented group.
However, the biggest name out of all the outfielders who could be available on the market is a guy who's signed through the 2019 season and owed a whopping $130 million. That would be Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp.
With a logjam of outfield talent in Kemp, Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier and Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers are looking to move one of those three veterans (not Puig) this offseason, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
"The Dodgers, according to major-league sources, are listening on Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford, telling prospective suitors, 'If you’re interested in one of them, make us an offer.'"
While the 2013 season was a down year for Kemp, as he hit just .270/.328/.395 and was limited to just 73 games, it's not long ago that he was considered by many to be the best all-around player in the game.
Still only 29, there's no reason to think he can't return to his 2011 form when he hit .324/.399/.586 with 39 home runs and 40 steals.
If the Dodgers are serious about moving Kemp and he does wind up being dealt, that could certainly have a ripple effect on the rest of the outfield market this offseason.
