This signing comes after Ian Desmond announced Monday night that he would be opting out of the 2020 MLB season. Kemp signs after getting cut by the Miami Marlins and last year he played only 20 games for the Reds batting 200 even. Not sure he’s still a “slugger” but it’s added depth for the Rockies who certainly need it.
