  • Twins' Tony Kemp: Receives MiLB deal from Minnesota

    Kemp signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Kemp lost his job with the Orioles when they promoted Jackson Holliday, but he didn't have to wait long to find another gig. With the Twins dealing with a couple injuries in their infield between Royce Lewis (quad) and Carlos Correa (intercostal), Kemp will provide some added depth.

  • Tony Kemp: Becomes free agent

    Kemp elected free agency Saturday, Rich Dubroff of reports.

    After being pushed off the 40-man roster Wednesday in favor of top prospect Jackson Holliday, Kemp exercised his right to refuse an outright assignment and will now explore his options in free agency. The 32-year-old slashed .209/.303/.304 last season with the Athletics and could find work as a bench player for a team in need of depth at second base or in the outfield.

  • Orioles' Tony Kemp: Cut from 40-man roster

    The Orioles designated Kemp for assignment Wednesday.

    Kemp's removal from the 40-man roster opens a spot for top prospect Jackson Holliday, who was called up from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move and is expected to take on a near-everyday role in the middle infield. Though he was able to crack the Orioles' Opening Day roster when he was signed shortly after being cut by the Reds in spring training, Kemp appeared in only five of Baltimore's first 10 games while going hitless in his nine at-bats.

  • Orioles' Tony Kemp: Joins Baltimore on MLB deal

    Kemp signed a one-year contract with the Orioles on Tuesday, Andy Kostka of reports.

    Kemp opted out of his minor-league deal with the Reds last week but has quickly caught on with a contender on a big-league contract. He will be an option to see some action at second base and left field, but he figures to ultimately settle into a reserve role.

  • Tony Kemp: Released by Cincinnati

    Kemp was released by the Reds on Tuesday.

    Kemp had been re-assigned to minor-league camp and it appears he has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. The 32-year-old will now be on the lookout for another gig and it's possible he could latch on with a major-league deal with a club looking for bench help.

  • Reds' Tony Kemp: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Reds reassigned Kemp to minor-league camp Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    With a lifetime .238/.325/.352 slash line (94 wRC+) over 2,237 career big-league plate appearances, Kemp was one of the more accomplished non-roster invitees who joined the Reds for camp, but he never had much of a chance at winning a spot on Cincinnati's Opening Day roster in light of the team's ample infield and outfield depth. If Kemp isn't willing to report to Triple-A Louisville to begin the season, the Reds could grant him his release and allow him to join an organization that can present him with a clearer path to a big-league roster spot.

  • Reds' Tony Kemp: Signs NRI deal with Cincinnati

    Kemp signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The 32-year-old veteran was an above-average hitter in 2021 but slashed just .224/.306/.321 with the Athletics over the last two seasons. Kemp offers the ability to play second base and the outfield but seems an odd fit for a Cincinnati roster already teeming with position player options.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Out again Tuesday

    Kemp (ankle) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

    Kemp hasn't been in the lineup since Friday versus Detroit, when he exited the contest with an ankle sprain. However, the 31-year-old received an at-bat off the bench Sunday, so the injury doesn't appear to be a serious issue.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Remains out Sunday

    Kemp (ankle) isn't in the Athletics' lineup Sunday against Detroit.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Pulled with ankle sprain

    Kemp was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers with a right ankle sprain, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Kemp turned his ankle while advancing to second base on a Lawrence Butler single in the bottom of the sixth inning. He remained in the game initially and scored on a Shea Langeliers three-run homer, but Esteury Ruiz entered to play left field in the top of the seventh. Kemp should be considered day-to-day for the remainder of Oakland's weekend series versus Detroit.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Sitting out Saturday

    Kemp (ankle) isn't in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

    Kemp had to make an early exit from Friday's contest after suffering a right ankle sprain in the sixth inning, and the injury will keep him out of Saturday's game as well. Esteury Ruiz will start in left field in Kemp's place and bat ninth.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Takes seat versus lefty

    Kemp is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    Oakland is rolling out an all-right-handed lineup with Detroit throwing left-hander Tarik Skubal. Kemp has drawn only 17 plate appearances versus southpaws this year.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Out of lineup

    Kemp is not in the lineup Sunday versus the Padres.

    Kemp will end up starting in only one game of the three-game series against the Padres. However, he did record an at-bat Sept. 15 when he did not start. A lefty started that game for the Padres, and their primary pitcher today seems to be lefty Ken Waldichuk with righty Joe Boyle as the opener. Esteury Ruiz will play in the left fielder's place.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Swipes bag, reaches three times

    Kemp went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Padres while also drawing a walk.

    Kemp singled in each of his first two at-bats but was left stranded on each occasion as Oakland fell behind early. He later walked and swiped a bag, marking his third steal in his last seven games. It was also Kemp's first multi-hit game since Aug. 25, and he's still batting just .194 this month with one homer, three RBI and three runs scored following Saturday's performance.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Logs 14th steal

    Kemp went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Rangers.

    Kemp has picked up a steal in each of his last two games after going 29 contests without one. In that time, he's seen his once-steady playing time drop into more of a strong-side platoon role, and he hit just .227 during his dry spell on the basepaths. For the year, Kemp is slashing .215/.310/.308 with four home runs, 14 steals, 26 RBI and 40 runs scored over 388 plate appearances. With Zack Gelof commanding a starting role at second base, most of Kemp's playing time down the stretch will likely be in left field.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Sitting against lefty

    Kemp isn't in Oakland's lineup Friday against the Rangers.

    Lefty Jordan Montgomery will toe the slab for Texas to begin Friday's contest, so Kemp will stay put in the Athletics' dugout. Aledmys Diaz will take over as Oakland's left fielder and bat fourth.
