Is Puig the Dodgers' best CF option?

PITTSBURGH -- The Dodgers’ ever-changing outfield alignment might take yet another turn. Manager Don Mattingly said he is considering using Yasiel Puig in center field after he returns from an injury to his left hand. Mattingly said he thought about it after watching Matt Kemp play right field Monday night. Kemp was a right fielder in the minor leagues, but he hadn’t started at the position since 2008 until Monday. “He’s always felt more comfortable in right than left and it looked like it last night,” Mattingly said.

Kemp: Right In, Rather Than Left Out

Matt Kemp started Monday's game in right field, and to his credit (unlike Kemp's agent), Kemp was saying all the right things prior to the game: “I’m just happy to be in the lineup,” Kemp said to The Times’ Dylan Hernandez in Pittsburgh. “It’s just another position to play.” It seems clear, however, the Dodgers are determined to let Kemp know they very much do not envision him a center fielder. The easy thing Monday would have been to send Andre Ethier back home to right and start Kemp in center; Carl Crawford is starting in left. Center is the more glamorous, demanding...

Kemp Key For Dodgers' Second-Half Run

David Schoenfield says what we all are thinking: if Matt Kemp can rise to form and make some more highlight-reel plays in left, or center, or wherever he plays, the Dodgers should be in very good shape: OK, we're already a couple of days into the second half of the season, which actually begins well past the actual halfway point of the season, but here are the key players to watch for each National League team. [...] Los Angeles Dodgers: Matt Kemp Kemp began the second half with his agent Dave Stewart proclaiming that Kemp just wants to play every day and "his hope at some point is to get...

Kemp's Agent Voices Dissension

At least it isn't coming from Matt Kemp himself, I suppose. But the news, through Matt Kemp's agent Dave Stewart, that Kemp would rather leave the Dodgers in order to play every day in center field, is a little disappointing. First, the news: The Los Angeles Dodgers have a crowded outfield, and if that gets in the way of Matt Kemp playing every day he would be open to a trade. The outfielder's agent, former major league pitcher Dave Stewart, said that Kemp wants to be an everyday center fielder and if the Dodgers cannot make that happen, Kemp would be open to a trade, according to a...

MLB trade rumors: Matt Kemp open to a trade to get more playing time

Would he make sense in a suddenly crowded Tigers outfield? Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp made headlines Thursday when his agent, former MLB pitcher Dave Stewart, told reporters that Kemp would be open to a trade if he landed somewhere with more playing time to offer. Would the Tigers be a possible trade partner for L.A.? WHY IT MAKES SENSE Matt Kemp is a supremely talented baseball player. He came within a home run of joining the 40 homer/40 steal club in 2011, finishing second to Ryan Braun in the National League MVP race. Kemp also led the league with 8.4 WAR that season....
