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.
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career.

Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
