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.
Dennis Pitta (hip) has been working out, but it is not known if he will be able to play when he is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Pitta can start participating in practice as soon as Monday, Oct. 19.
