09:44 AM ET 11.23 | The Red Sox are one of several teams who have made inquiries on Dodgers centerfielder Matt Kemp according to a major league source. The Red Sox have probably made a few dozen of these types of calls on trades and free-agents, but Kemp is certainly intriguing. The one player they probably have not weighed in on is free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano. Kemp is still owed six years at about $130 million, but it would appear the Dodgers would have to eat some of the contract in any deal in order to receive fair player acquisition. The Red Sox are obviously looking at all options to replace Jacoby Ellsbury in the event he will leave and sign with a new team as a free-agent. Kemp, 29, had an injury-filled season last season limiting him to 73 games and played in only 106 games the year before. But prior to that he was a durable players playing in 155, 159, 162 and 161 games per season.

$21.5 Mill/yr for six years is too much.
The Dodgers will have to eat about $5mill/yr of that to make it palatable.
