Dodgers acquire Matt Kemp in multi-player trade with Braves

ATLANTA-BRAVES     Braves trade Matt Kemp to Dodgers for multiple players

That being said, Ken Rosenthal has also reported that Kemp is likely to either be traded or released by the Dodgers. For the Dodgers, it's all about getting underneath the luxury tax in advance of the 2018 season.

Adrian Gonzalez, who spent the past six seasons in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform, tweeted a farewell to the organisation, his team-mates and fans in the wake of the surprise trade sending him to the Atlanta Braves. The Braves have designated Gonzalez for assignment, and it wouldn't be surprising if Kemp never actually takes the field for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers dumped about $47.5 million in salaries in the trade, and sent the Braves the cash to cover the differences in the amount between those salaries and what Kemp was owed on the eight-year, $160 million contract he signed with the Dodgers after the 2011 season. In his career, Kazmir has been named an All-Star three times.

Cishek, 31, made $6 million last season in the final year of a two-year, $10 million contract. In exchange, the Dodgers acquired catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. This deal also has little to no impact on the Dodgers' 2018 aspirations, seeing as how Gonzalez and Kazmir were not really in the equation to begin with. He did not pitch past year due to a hip injury. The Dodgers have been slapped with luxury tax penalties over the past five seasons. He hit his 1,500th career double and became the first Braves player to have a three home run game since 2008. Kemp will make $21.5 million in 2018 and another $21.5 million in 2019.

Kemp batted.276 with 19 homers and a.318 on-base percentage past year for Atlanta. Eating his salary would be nothing new for the Dodgers - they paid Carl Crawford $35 million to not play for them this year and most of 2016. According to ESPN's report, the team made immediately trade Kimp to further lower payroll after dumping almost $50 million in salary committed to Gonzalez, Kazmir and McCarthy for 2018.
