The Atlanta Braves traded outfielder Matt Kemp to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Adrian Gonzalez, Brandon McCarthy, Scott Kazmir and Charlie Culberson, the teams announced Saturday.

Based on arbitration projections by MLB Trade Rumors, plus benefits to all on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers' projected opening day roster lands at around $198 million as it regards MLB's competitive balance tax. In exchange, the Dodgers acquired catcher Yasmani Grandal and pitchers Joe Wieland and Zach Eflin.

The trio of Gonzalez, McCarthy and Kazmir were owed approximately $47.5 million in 2018. The Dodgers have been slapped with luxury tax penalties over the past five seasons. However, the 33-year-old Kemp did spend some time on the disabled list last season, and his overall production is trending downwards.

In 2018, right-handers Ross Stripling and Brock Stewart will provide immediate depth, while top prospect Walker Buehler - who debuted in relief in 2017 - may arrive for good sooner rather than later. Last season with Atlanta he slashed.276/.318/.463 with 19 home runs. But he was traded to the San Diego Padres after the 2013 season, and is far removed from the elite performer he was the first time he was in L.A.

Kemp also grounded into 25 double plays in 2017, which lead all National League players for the most.

Pedro told Chelsea's website : "It's very good because we all understand football very well". He can get on with the others, or he can sit in the stands", Conte said after the victory.

Kemp was still technically to be paid by the Dodgers for the next two seasons on a contract worth over $43 million.

The Dodgers reportedly sent $4.5 million to balance the two salary dumps.

-The New York Yankees and CC Sabathia agreed on a one-year deal worth $10 million, according to multiple reports.

Gonzalez gave thanks to the Dodgers organization and the team's fans, while also noting that the move was more about him becoming a free agent in order to see what other opportunities could be out there for him to take advantage of.
