The Los Angeles Dodgers are trading outfielder Matt Kemp to the San Diego Padres, it was reported Thursday

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the 30-year-old Kemp would be traded to the Padres with back-up catcher Tim Federowicz, citing unnamed sources. In exchange the Dodgers would take  26-year-old Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal and two pitching prospects, according to the newspaper.

The Dodgers would also pay $30 million of the $107 million remaining on Kemp’s contract, the newspaper reported. The deal is expected to be finalized today before the conclusion of baseball’s Winter Meetings in San Diego.
