Matt Kemp, Rockies Reportedly Agree to Minor League Contract

He will replace Ian Desmond on the roster after Desmond announced he would opt out of the 2020 season. The 34-year-old explained his reasoning in an Instagram post Tuesday:

Kemp appeared in just 20 major league games last season with the Cincinnati Reds, hitting .200 with one home run.
