    Player Notes

    • Padres make deal for Matt Kemp official
      Padres acquired OF Matt Kemp, C Tim Federowicz and cash considerations from the Dodgers in exchange for C Yasmani Grandal and RHPs Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin.

      Advice: The trade took longer than expected to be officially completed, reportedly due to the discovery of Kemp dealing with arthritis in both hips, but it's now in the books. San Diego will receive $32 million to cover a big portion of the $107 million Kemp is still owed. Kemp had a nice bounce-back season in 2014, batting .287/.346/.506 with 25 homers and 89 RBI. He'll be surrounded by less talent than he was last season, though the Padres have done their best to rebuild their offense. Rotoworld.com

    • Smith given verbal assurance of no trade
      FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Seth Smith was given verbal assurance when he signed an extension that he would not be traded this offseason.

      Advice: As Rosenthal notes, the assurance came before A.J. Preller took over as general manager. However, the same ownership is still in place, and while they don't technically have to honor the verbal agreement, it would look pretty bad if they didn't. Smith has drawn trade interest with the Padres suddenly overflowing with outfielders, but it sounds like he might be staying put. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Vogt has walking boot removed
      Stephen Vogt had the walking boot removed from his surgically-repaired right foot Thursday.

      Advice: Vogt had surgery in October to repair the plantar plates in his foot. It's an injury he dealt with throughout the second half of the season and he noted Thursday that it's the first time since July he can put a shoe on his right foot and walk without any pain. Vogt will be fine for the start of spring training. Rotoworld.com

    • Ichiro receiving some consideration from O's
      CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that free agent Ichiro Suzuki is "receiving some consideration" from the Orioles.

      Advice: Baltimore is currently in the mix for a number of free agent outfielders, including Colby Rasmus, Norichika Aoki, and Delmon Young. Ichiro batted just .284/.324/.340 in 143 games this past season for the Yankees. He turned 41 years old in late October. Rotoworld.com

    • BoSox in 'active' talks for Allen Craig trade
      According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Red Sox are in "active" Allen Craig trade talks with at least one team.

      Advice: Craig batted just .128/.234/.191 in 107 plate appearances after the July 31 trade that sent he and Joe Kelly from the Cardinals to the Red Sox for John Lackey. Craig hasn't been the same since suffering a Lisfranc foot injury late in the 2013 season and he's owed $26.5 million over the next three years. Boston probably won't be able to get much in return.
