Matt Kemp's agent is convinced the Dodgers will trade him this off-season.
"I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen," said Dave Stewart, the former major league pitcher who represents Kemp.
Stewart noted that Kemp's possible departure has been rumored for more than a month.
"I haven't heard a player's name floated around like that and something not happen," Stewart said.
So, for the first time in his decade as an agent, Stewart will attend baseball's winter meetings, which start Monday. His primary objective will be to gather information about Kemp's future.
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
