Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp sought out OF Yasiel Puig and exchanged words with him in the dugout Monday, Sept. 15. Kemp may have been angry that Puig didn't go first-to-third on a single to right field by 1B Adrian Gonzalez. It sounded like it wasn't the first time the Dodgers' tempers have flared at one another. Several sources have described the clubhouse atmosphere as "dysfunctional."

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 6. 2B Justin Turner is starting in his place. Also, both OFs Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are starting, with OF Matt Kemp serving as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Uribe receives a day off after his big night Tuesday. Take him out of your daily lineups if he's in there.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez was claimed/blocked on non-revocable waivers, while OFs Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford and SP Josh Beckett cleared waivers.
Fantasy Tip: Relax folks. This doesn't mean Ramirez is being traded soon. The Dodgers now have the right to pull Han-Ram back off waivers and keep him, or work out a trade with the claiming club. It's highly unlikely Los Angeles wants to trade Ramirez.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp hit two two-run home runs in the team's victory Tuesday, July 29, with his name swirling around in trade rumors as the deadline approaches. The four RBIs were a season high as he passed 600 career RBIs with 603. Kemp is hitting .400 in 10 games since the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Kemp is making his case for the Dodgers to hang onto him at the deadline. He's primed to have a better second half of the season, and he should be owned everywhere after a disappointing first half.

The Boston Red Sox are not looking to trade for Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp at the moment, a source confirmed Monday, July 28.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team is conflicted on whether they will be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. A recent 1-5 stretch heading into play Monday has the team's odd looking rather long at a postseason spot, although they're not snuffed out yet. It appears the team will need to figure out their direction in the next couple of days before this Kemp rumor (or any others) gains traction.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp has no problems playing right field with rumors flying that he might be traded before the deadline July 31, according to manager Don Mattingly.
Fantasy Tip: A trade might be likely, and if Kemp does move, it'll likely boost his fantasy value with the assurance that he'll receive steady playing time on a new squad.
