Dodgers, Padres Finalize Kemp Trade 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Dec 19, 2014 1:23 pm

Matt Kemp has joined the San Diego Padres after the club finalized a five-player trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night.

The teams agreed to the trade last week during the winter meetings in San Diego, but Kemp's physical delayed the transaction slightly.

San Diego also gets catcher Tim Federowicz. The Dodgers receive catcher Yasmani Grandal and right-handers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. The Padres will also receive $32 million to offset the $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract.
