Dodgers move Yasiel Puig to center

The Dodgers have had discussions with teams about Kemp since at least December but haven't found the interest level overwhelming. Kemp -- who is batting .273 with eight home runs and 40 RBIs after three hits, including a triple, and two RBIs on Friday night -- has five years and $107 million left on his contract following this season. To move him, the Dodgers likely would have to pay a significant portion of what's left on the contract.

Hanley Ramirez also returned to the Dodgers' lineup Friday, going 2-for-5 with an RBI after missing the previous three games. Like Puig, he was struck in the left hand by a pitch in the Dodgers' series in St. Louis last weekend.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
