The Los Angeles Dodgers have a crowded outfield, and if that gets in the way of Matt Kemp playing every day he would be open to a trade.

The former Midwest City High School star's agent, Dave Stewart, said that Kemp wants to be an everyday starter in center field, and if the Dodgers can't make that happen, Kemp would be open to a trade.



The Dodgers outfield is currently pretty crowded with Kemp, Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke. That's five outfielders for three spots, not counting Triple-A outfielder Joc Pederson, who ESPN's Keith Law ranks as the No. 22 prospect in all of baseball.

Kemp still has more than $100 million left on his contract, which runs through 2019.
