Report: Rockies sign veteran OF Kemp
A day after outfielder Ian Desmond said he wouldn’t be participating in the 2020 season, the Colorado Rockies hope to have found a replacement. USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale reports the club has signed veteran slugger Matt Kemp to a minor-league deal.

Kemp, 35, played 20 games in the majors last season with the Cincinnati Reds before being released in early May. In 60 at-bats in 2019, Kemp hit .200 with a home run, five runs batted in and an OPS of .493.

‘The wall won’ _ Kemp tries to revive career with Marlins

MIAMI (AP) — Fans of The Clash, The Bobby Fuller Four and the Cincinnati Reds can agree Matt Kemp had the quote of the year after he broke a rib chasing a flyball last April.

“I fought the wall, and the wall won,” Kemp said.

He broke a rib and missed the final five months of the season. Now, at 35, the three-time All-Star outfielder is mounting a comeback with the Miami Marlins.

Kemp waves off the idea Miami is where great outfielder careers come to die. Three-time All-Star Curtis Granderson batted .183 with the Marlins in his final season last year. Seven-time major league hits leader Ichiro Suzuki hit .256 in his final three full seasons with Miami in 2015-17.
