"Lifting the no-trade clause is the hardest decision I have ever made in my career due to the fact I loved every single second being a Dodger", Gonzalez wrote.
For the Dodgers this deal gives the organization more breathing room as it pertains to the luxury tax, allowing them to better pursue free agents in the 2018 offseason.
In a deft and startling bit of financial maneuvering that will enable them to pursue free agents like Bryce Harper with impunity one year from now, the Los Angeles Dodgers dumped four players on the Atlanta Braves and reacquired outfielder Matt Kemp on Saturday.
Obviously, Dodgers fans were in shock to see Kemp back with the team after his rather controversial trade in 2014 to the San Diego Padres. In exchange, the Dodgers acquired catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin. The Braves nearly immediately designated Gonzalez for assignment, which makes him a free agent. In his career, Kazmir has been named an All-Star three times. However, the 33-year-old Kemp did spend some time on the disabled list last season, and his overall production is trending downwards.
McCarthy, 34, was 6-4 with a 3.98 ERA in 19 games (16 starts) for the Dodgers last season, missing half the season for blister problems before returning late in the season with his 94-mph fastball intact and a new slider to go with it. This deal also has little to no impact on the Dodgers' 2018 aspirations, seeing as how Gonzalez and Kazmir were not really in the equation to begin with. The Dodgers have been slapped with luxury tax penalties over the past five seasons.
Kemp batted.276 with 19 homers and a.318 on-base percentage previous year for Atlanta. Kemp will make $21.5 million in 2018 and another $21.5 million in 2019.
