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.

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.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp is not asking to be traded, but he also isn't against the idea. His agent, Dave Stewart, said Wednesday, July 16, that Kemp wants to be an everyday center fielder, and that is something that isn't in his immediate future with the Dodgers. "Whatever they want to do we're favorable to, as long as it gives him an opportunity to play every day," Stewart said. "He'd like to eventually go back to center field. He's not opposed to right or left. But his hope at some point is to get back to center." General manager Ned Colletti declined to comment whether the team would be willing to move Kemp.
