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

"Eight years is a long time to be in one place," Kemp's agent Dave Stewart said. "Sometimes change is good. This might be the time to change."
Fantasy Tip: A move is likely to help Kemp's fantasy value. Currently, he is battling for playing time in a crowded Dodgers outfield.

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.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (ankle) is listed as a reserve on the lineup card Thursday, July 10, against the San Diego Padres.
Fantasy Tip: Expect the Dodgers to activate Crawford from the disabled list before tonight's game. Crawford will likely be eased back into playing time, but he was scorching hot before his injury. He is worth considering in all formats. His activation will leave the Dodgers' outfield stocked with options. Scott Van Slyke and Andre Either are likely to see the least playing time going forward. To a lesser degree, Matt Kemp will also see less playing time.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford's (ankle) return isn't expected to change the lineup, according to manager Don Mattingly. There could be a logjam with OFs Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Andre Ethier also in the fold.
Fantasy Tip: What does this exactly mean? We're not sure, and we probably won't know until Mattingly starts filling out his lineups. There's a chance he could ride the hot hand. If anything, it likely means Crawford won't see enough consistent playing time to be considered in standard mixed leagues.
