Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez claimed

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 11:11:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez was claimed/blocked on non-revocable waivers, while OFs Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford and SP Josh Beckett cleared waivers.

Fantasy Tip: Relax folks. This doesn't mean Ramirez is being traded soon. The Dodgers now have the right to pull Han-Ram back off waivers and keep him, or work out a trade with the claiming club. It's highly unlikely Los Angeles wants to trade Ramirez.

Dodgers | Matt Kemp hits two homers

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 08:57:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp hit two two-run home runs in the team's victory Tuesday, July 29, with his name swirling around in trade rumors as the deadline approaches. The four RBIs were a season high as he passed 600 career RBIs with 603. Kemp is hitting .400 in 10 games since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp is making his case for the Dodgers to hang onto him at the deadline. He's primed to have a better second half of the season, and he should be owned everywhere after a disappointing first half.

Red Sox | Not looking to trade for Matt Kemp

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:16:59 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are not looking to trade for Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp at the moment, a source confirmed Monday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team is conflicted on whether they will be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. A recent 1-5 stretch heading into play Monday has the team's odd looking rather long at a postseason spot, although they're not snuffed out yet. It appears the team will need to figure out their direction in the next couple of days before this Kemp rumor (or any others) gains traction.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:23:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp is of trade interest to at least five MLB teams, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: A move is likely to help Kemp's fantasy value. Currently, he is battling for playing time in a crowded Dodgers outfield.
