07:24 AM ET 11.21 | While much of the heaviest lifting took place a little over a year ago, big names still may wind up among Dodgers' transactions. Matt Kemp does not want to be traded, according to his agent, Dave Stewart. But Stewart said Kemp understands why the Los Angeles Dodgers could move him, and that his preference -- if it happens -- would be to join a winning team. [Dodgers GM] Ned Colletti has said he is open to trading one of its outfielders but is not shopping any of them. Yasiel Puig is highly unlikely to be moved. Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford are more realistic targets, Kemp perhaps the most realistic of all. The Seattle Mariners have expressed interest in Kemp, according to sources who spoke with FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi. The Texas Rangers also inquired about Kemp at the recent general managers' meetings.

...never healthy...he'd have to come really cheap to TX.

Injury pronged and high price contract will make it harder for the Dodgers to move him.

This would be a serious case of sellng low.

I think the Dodgers should try trading Kemp. He got hurt the last time by not hustling home. He cannot stay healthy, probably because he is off the roids. If they can get something for him and rid themselves of a bad contract, it might be best for the Dodgers. They have now been without him for almost two years of game service. Get it done Ned.

Did the Prince take the Ranger's Kemp money?

Kemp is on his way to the Rangers after the Cardinals - Rangers trade. The Rangers are revamping. Look for a new manager in 2015.

Do the Rangers now need a second baseman? I wonder who's available? Nah, they wouldn't? Would They?

That's perfect for the Mets, he would once again be a Star if he played in New York!!!
