Padres' Matt Kemp not worried about arthritic hips
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Padres outfielder Matt Kemp said he intends to stretch more as a way to combat arthritis in both of his hips. However, Kemp stressed he is not too worried about the diagnosis, per MLB.com.
"It was surprising, but it's not that big of a deal," he said. "I think everyone has some type of situation going on as far as something being arthritic in their body. It's finding a way to go around it and be successful. My hips feel great, and I'm ready to go."
Padres OF Matt Kemp reports to spring training early
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Padres outfielder Matt Kemp doesn't have to be in Peoria, Ariz. until next Tuesday. However, Kemp decided to arrive for spring training early on Thursday to get acclimated to his new team.
"It is really nothing new for me," Kemp said, via MLB.com. "I've always reported early to camp. And especially now that I'm with a new team, this gives me a chance to get acclimated to some of the guys, hang out and also get some of my work in."
Kemp was traded to the Padres by the Dodgers this past December.
In 2014, Kemp hit 287/.346/.506 with 25 home runs and 89 RBI.

Dodgers complete Matt Kemp deal with Padres
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) The Dodgers and Padres have agreed to a deal that will send outfielder Matt Kemp to San Diego, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. News that the deal had finally come together was first reported by Yahoo!
The trade has been in the works for some time, but was dependent on Kemp passing a physical. It was reported early Thursday that Kemp's physical revealed arthritic hips. The Padres had to to figure out insurance on the contract, which is why it took so long for the deal to go through.
Catcher Tim Federowicz will also head to San Diego in the deal. The Dodgers will send $32 million over as well.
In return, Los Angeles is set to receive catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitcher Joe Weiland and Zach Eflin. Eflin is expected to be flipped to Philadelphia for shortstop Jimmy Rollins.
The 30-year-old Kemp hit .287/.346/.506 over 541 at-bats last year. Kemp is set to earn a little over $21 million in each of the next five seasons.
Issue with Matt Kemp's physical not expected to derail trade
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) While several sources said there is an issue with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp's physical, which is holding up a trade with the Padres, it isn't believed the issue will derail the deal, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
There is no evidence the Padres are trying to rework the trade. For now, it is believed the Padres people are studying the findings from Kemp's physical, with the likelihood that they'll go to insurers to see whether the issue or issues discovered can be reasonably insured.
USA Today reported Thursday Kemp's physical revealed severe arthritis in both hips.
|2014 summary: Skeptics who expected Matt Kemp to miss a large chunk of time after he missed 145 games over the previous two seasons were proven wrong, as the Dodgers outfielder played in 150 games. His production rebounded, though not quite to the level of his near-MVP season in 2011. Kemp was slow out of the gate after having had ankle surgery in the offseason, and that is reflected in his year-end .287 batting average and 25 home runs. From June 7 forward, however, he hit .311 with 20 home runs and 24 doubles. Not surprisingly, Kemp seems to be all but done as an impact base-stealer; he stole eight bases in 13 attempts. He is absolutely done as a part of the Dodgers' outfield, as he was traded to the Padres in December.|
Playing time status: Not only did Kemp produce more over the final two-thirds of the season, but he rarely missed a start. Just maybe he has put his injury issues behind him.
2015 outlook: Even with his slow start, Kemp finished as a top 15 Rotisserie outfielder and a top 20 outfielder in points leagues. If he can carry over his mid-to-late-season surge, he has a legitimate shot to be a top 10 outfielder in 2015. Given his recent history of injuries and inconsistency, plus the potential for lost run production with his move to the Padres, you can probably draft him among the top 15 at his position. That will still require an early-round pick.
