Matt Kemp, New York Mets agree to minor-league contract

The New York Mets announced Friday that they’ve signed outfielder Matt Kemp to a minor-league contract about 20 days after the Cincinnati Reds released him.

Kemp had joined the Reds in a blockbuster deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers during the offseason, but he hit just .200 with one home run and five RBIs in 60 at-bats before missing the 11 games with a broken rib before Cincinnati released him.

In 14 big-league seasons, the 34-year-old Kemp has hit .285 with 281 home runs, 1,010 RBIs and 183 stolen bases. He was an All-Star in 2018 with the Dodgers.

Given how big a need the Mets seem to have for outfielders, wondering who else they’ll be placing bids on.

It’s amusing to me that over the last 5 years Matt Kemp has been a perfectly cromulent DH, and during that time he’s played with 5 different teams....but all 5 teams are in the National League!!!
